I am a qualified Spanish lawyer with Master of Laws degree from the University of Leicester’s School of Law, United Kingdom. After obtaining my law degree in Spain (Licenciatura en Derecho), I studied Institutional Translation at the University of Alicante, Spain. As of 2010, I have been providing translation services to my customers. My native language is Continental Spanish, but due to my long and steady collaboration with US-based LSPs, I also translate into US Spanish.

Please be advised that even though I am a freelance translator based in Spain, I operate under my private limited company, Dekano Translations LTD, with registered address 20-22 Wenlock Road, London, N1 7GU, United Kingdom, registration number 09620273. All documents will be signed, and all invoices will be issued, by my company. All work is done exclusively by me; I have no employees nor do I outsource projects. 

Space precludes listing all projects I have translated or edited. However, below you will find a list that includes some of them (non-confidential samples are available at request):
