Spanish - Native English
Technical Translator and Engineer

I am a professional Spanish to English translator from the UK that specialises in engineering documents. I have a first class masters degree in Civil Engineering from the University of London and over 9 years of translation experience working with international engineering and construction companies. I have also completed additional courses in Interpreting (Simultaneous and Consecutive), Quality Management and Sustainability.

My preferred subject areas are: Civil engineering, construction, engineering design, electromechanical equipment, manufacturing, oil and gas, water treatment, structural engineering, environmental engineering, sustainability, patents. I usually work on documents such as technical specifications, tender documents, installation manuals, construction methodologies, product catalogues, works completion certificates, safety manuals.

I work with a variety of CAT Tools: Trados Studio 2017 (my own license), memoQ (server licenses), Wordfast and MateCat. I can also handle a variety of document formats including: AutoCAD drawings, Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, Power Point, Excel, scanned PDF documents, sdlxliff files, etc. 

Additional services I can provide include interpreting (consecutive for meetings and conferences) and direct video/audio transcription. Please contact me and I will be happy to provide a quotation and further detail on my rates.
