Professional practices Carlos Hervás endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

Professional translator since 1986, mainly specialist in the fields related to sound and music: pro audio, musical instruments, HiFi (home and car), recording and audio software, video, multimedia, home cinema, etc. I have also translated and supervised information technology (IT) projects, mainly software manuals.

The fact of being a bilingual musician has always been highly appreciated by customers, since the outcome of my translations belong to the real world, in the language that professionals and users speak and write. Working with all of the major desktop publishing applications to deliver final layouts is a plus also highly valued by many clients. I translate or have translated for leading brands in the market such as YAMAHA, TEAC, ESOTERIC, KORG, VOX, PIONEER, FOCUSRITE, AUDINATE, LANDESK SOFTWARE, NAKAMICHI, JBL, HARMAN KARDON, TASCAM, KEF, ONKYO, MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION, PEAVEY, MESA BOOGIE, PAISTE, ALPINE or STUDIOMASTER, as direct clients, through their distributors in Spain, or in a translation team coordinated by a translation agency. Owner's manuals, sales and corporate image brochures, advertising campaigns, websites and technical service manuals have formed the core of over 1,000 jobs ​​since the start of my career.

My expertise also covers tourism, advertising and marketing through translations for travel agencies (HALCÓN VIAJES, the largest in Spain with more than 700 offices, QUO VIAJES), tour operators (TRAVELPLAN, CLUB DE VACACIONES), hotel chains (NH HOTELS, CARLSON REZIDOR, HOTETUR, BLUE BAY RESORTS, HOTELUX), airlines (RYANAIR, EUROWINGS, SPANAIR, AIR EUROPA, AIR MADRID), as well as fashion brands (TOMMY HILFIGER), food industries (KELLOGG'S), large multisectorial corporations (PROCTER & GAMBLE), and pharmaceutical companies (ALLIANCE HEALTHCARE), among others.

Translation quality, meeting deadlines and open communication with my client are my main goals in every project.
