About Me

MA in German and French from Cambridge University (Emmanuel College, England).

Hispanic Studies Course at Granada University (Spain) with an emphasis on translation:
English into Spanish (first with distinction)
and German into Spanish (first).

After 13 years of teaching (English, German and French), which included translation (German and Spanish into English) as part of the preparation for Chamber of Commerce examinations, as well as for GCSE and A level exams (British education system - German/English), I became a full-time freelance translator in September 1999.

As I lived in Spain, specifically in Barcelona, Granada and Madrid, for nearly 14 years from January 1989 to November 2002, I know the country, the language and the culture well.
