Bio

I am London-based native Spanish and Basque translator with nine years of experience. Having studied cinema and cinema lighting, and having worked as Electrician and Gaffer for more than five years on different film productions in the UK, I have a strong cinema background. Therefore, I am very familiar with film terminology, e.g. screenplay terms or film production jargon.

Eight years ago I finished (with Distinction) an Audiovisual Translation MA at City University London. During these past years I have worked with different companies of the field translating and subtitling documentaries, feature films, and TV programs that have been broadcast on TV channels such as Netflix, BBC Worldwide, Discovery MAX, CNBC or MTV Spain. Since June 2013, I collaborate with In-Edit, a music documentary festival, for whom I have subtitled into Spanish more than 30 documentaries. Also, in 2015 I began working as Quality Control Verifier for Netflix.

I consider myself a hardworking and reliable professional, and I am grateful for doing a job that I enjoy and which gives me the chance to learn a bit more every day.
These are some of the projects I have worked on up until now:
