Professional practices Laura Serván endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Throughout my career I have had the opportunity of working with several multinational companies, in multilingual environments and positions that have contributed to my vast experience in translation. As a Freelance Translator my main objective is to provide prompt and consistent quality service and to meet the needs of every client and every text.

A professional translation of your documents can bring you many benefits and convey a good image to its intended recipients. When placing a translation assignment you have to take into consideration your target audience: they need an accurate text, faithful to the original, put into the right context, using the appropriate terminology for each subject matter and providing a flowing and smooth reading. Please see this interesting European Commission's study on the cost of poor quality in translation:
