We are an editorial services company based in Barcelona, Spain.

We are looking for Spanish>UK English translators to collaborate on some of our current projects. We are looking for translators with a general knowledge of physics and chemistry for secondary school text books. These books are for Spanish students studying core subjects in English, so we are looking for people who have excellent writing skills and can produce easy to read and coherent copy.

We also need translators to work on teacher's guides for secondary physics and chemistry, and primary level natural and social sciences.

These projects are ongoing and there will be continual flow of work until March 2018.

Translators will be provided with a lot of reference materials and ongoing support. We work with IDML files and any translation memory tools.

Sample text: Translating this text is NOT required
Cuando un cuerpo a cierta temperatura se pone en contacto con un cuerpo a menor temperatura, le cede calor; decimos que el cuerpo caliente se enfría y el frío se calienta. El calor es la energía que se intercambia cuando se ponen en contacto dos cuerpos que están a distinta temperatura. El calor se mide en unidades de energía. En el SI (Sistema Internacional) se mide en julios (J). Tradicionalmente el calor se mide en calorías (cal).
