Translator, localizer and subtitler

Helping the world to communicate

Who am I?

I'm a freelance translator, spanish native speaker, who works with pairs EN>Es, Es>EN, Fr>Es. I'm a vocational linguist and so I decided to study English Philology(BA) and then a Masters degree on what has been called 'Community Interpreting' (these are ment to be interpreters that support minorities or collectives at risk of social exclusion, mainly inmigrants who cannot speak the local language and need help when dealing with the authorities, courts of justice, police or may be just having access to health care services).

After that I did work as an interpreter/translator at courts of justice and police stations, I also underwent a brief internship period at a local NGO and the Harbour's Authority, where I did translate, specialized documents related to the port's management, seamanship and navigation.

It was not until eight years ago that I decided to go freelance and things haven't been too bad since then. Beeing on your own is riskier and there are tough periods from time to time, but I wouldn't change the freedom and the quality of life that I enjoy being a freelancer. Since I've never been scared of hard word, this business model is the right one to me, even though I must work many more hours.

What do I do?

I'm specialized on academic texts, theses, articles mainly related to sciences, IT, anthropology or social sciences. I've recently discover that I love translating works of fiction, poetry, novels and drama. I've translated three works of fiction already, in the coming weeks I'll publish the links so you can see those books and, who knows, may be buy them, ;)

I do provide services of transcription, localisation, proofreading, editing, video editing and work with TRADOS and almost any software the client asks for.
I'm very keen on subtitling all sorts of audiovisuals and I always deliver work right on time.
