About me
I graduated in the summer of 2007 with an MA in Translating from the University of Salford. I also have a batchelor’s degree in European Business Administration and Languages. I translate from Spanish and French into English.

I have wide commercial experience, having worked in Marketing-related and IT departments. I am also experienced in the hospitality and tourist industries. I am now able to combine my language expertise with my business and life skills and do what I have wished to do for a long time, translation.

I travel regularly to France as I am involved in a small ski chalet business there. I deal with all the administration for that business, including translation for my colleagues.

In addition to translating all kinds of business texts, I am very interested in medical and pharmaceutical texts. I come from a medical family and I have become increasingly interested in the medical domain as a specialisation and have recently completed a course on Pharmaceuticals for Translators.

Other specialist areas I am most comfortable with are property (including contracts), tourism and the wine industry.

I have good editing and proof reading skills and excellent research skills.

I have gained the Certificate and Higher Certificate of the Wine and Spirits Education Trust.

Hardware – HP Compaq Intel Pentium processor with MS Window XP. Printer and scanner. High-speed broadband connection.

Software – MS Office – experienced user. SDLX/Trados – beginner.

Translation Services

Translations from: Spanish to English French to English

Accurate - the translation will accurately convey the meaning of the source text.

Appropriate - it is important to know who the end user of the final translation will be. I will always tailor my translations so that they are entirely appropriate for their intended purpose.

Timely – Deadlines are vital to clients. I always endeavour to meet them, only taking on a translation that I know I can complete within the required time. Technical and linguistic complexity must be accounted for in setting a deadline.

Accuracy and professionalism
Attention to detail
Thorough research
Glossaries maintained for each project
It goes without saying that I would respect client confidentiality at all times
Budget – I can offer most competitive rates. Here again, linguistic and technical complexity must be taken into account. Rates are negotiable according to required deadlines and complexity.

Subject areas:
Medical and pharmaceutical
International development
Business and commercial documents (including IT, marketing, accounts and contracts)

I am happy to provide examples of translations. I can provide references on request.
