Bio

Translation
is a mixture of creativity and practice, it requires experience, intuition and a good sense of language.
I started translating, proofreading and transcreating both from Swedish and English in 2001, motivated by my experiences of living abroad and encountering new cultures. While continuing with the practice of translating (and discovering new languages, ways of thinking and people) I studied a BA in Linguistics and Phonetics at Stockholms Universitet and, more recently, a Post-graduate program in Translation and Translation studies at El Colegio de México. The academic approach has helped me attain a more complete perspective and has made me aware of the fact that translation is not only about languages, but it also involves an ideology and a practical purpose, reason for which each text must be treated as a unique entity with particular features.

 

Some examples of my work are:
