Bio
Translator and proofreader specialised in social science
Bilingual
100% native proficiency in BASQUE and SPANISH
Translations from ENGLISH, ITALIAN and GALICIAN

As a social scientist, I pay extra attention to the context where the translations come from. This means that both written and spoken discourse (translation and transcription) are understood as communication and interaction facts in their cognitive, social, political, historical and cultural contexts.

Every text is a source of meanings and this profound sociocultural look in the context is the strongest base for the most accurate translation. Hence, I treat every source text in its particular context of production to make the best of it in the translation.

Previously social science researcher and transcriptor, since 2014 I am a full-time translator responsible for translating social science related works. From cultural studies to anthropology, sociology, historiography and tourism related translations, I have also experience in e-commerce and marketing translations.

I work with SDL Trados Studio 2015
