Bio
I am British but have lived in Argentina since my early teens, which has made me fully bilingual in English and Spanish. I have a solid foundation in literature in both languages, as well as being a university-trained certified translator. Since beginning to work as a freelance translator, after many years of teaching language and literature in top private schools in Argentina, I have translated several books to the complete satisfaction of their authors and publishers, in addition to academic articles and many non-literary texts. I enjoy working in collaboration with the authors whenever possible, and can provide their names and email addresses as references, together with brief samples of the work I have done for them.

Besides my training and full command of both languages, I have an eye for detail and take pride in my work, providing high-quality translations in both English and Spanish. Feel free to contact me for translation or proofreading services, to request quotes or sample translations, and for any other information you may require.

I have appended a list of some of my most interesting translations, with links to additional information:
