Professional practices Josephine Gardiner endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a freelance translator translating from Spanish into English, specialising in two main areas: (1) Medical (developmental psychology, general medicine, healthcare, obstetrics and midwifery), and (2) Literature and the visual arts (19th and 20th century fiction, painting, architecture).

I also have experience translating texts on archaeology, history, education, the environment, botany, and tourism.

My main aim is to convey exactly what you said in Spanish in a way that seems completely natural, authoritative, and appropriate to your English readers and clients. Editing and proofreading is included in the cost of my translations.

I lived and worked in Spain for six years until 2014 and maintain a strong association with the country. I am academically qualified: BA (modern history), BSc (psychology, first class honours), MA (developmental psychology). I successfully completed a 10-unit Advanced Translator Training course (DipTrans level).

I also have over 20 years' experience working as a journalist and editor on British national newspapers, including The Times Educational Supplement.

I translate and edit academic articles, newspaper articles, books (fiction and non-fiction), catalogues, reports, websites, and personal documents. Whether you represent a large organisation, a small company or simply yourself, I will work with you to ensure that your work is conveyed in natural, convincing, and accurate English.

Previous clients have included UNESCO, architectural partnerships, academic researchers, healthcare professionals, and hotel and museum websites. I have experience translating Latin American Spanish as well as European Spanish, and am happy to translate into American as well as British English as required.


"The standard of her translation work was very high.
What most stood out to me about her working ethic was her dedication to getting the right term, regardless of the research efforts required. Beyond this, she understood the Spanish texts on both a linguistic and cultural level. Her wide vocabulary and excellent written expression were a clear reflection of her many years working as a journalist and editor.
I don't hesitate to recommend Jo as a skilled, reliable collaborator."

"Josephine Gardiner me ha ayudado en la traducción y edición de varios ensayos y una tesis en el ámbito sanitario, más concretamente en el obstétrico.
Recomiendo sus servicios, ya que siempre ha sido muy atenta, te hace traducciones largas para la fecha acordada, además siempre está disponible para discutir y acordar los cambios necesarios en los trabajos.
Mi experiencia trabajando con ella es sólo positiva, así que se lo recomiendo a cualquier persona que necesite traducciones y/o ediciones a nivel académico."

Victoria Garcia, client
