Bio

Once a professional in business educated in the field up to MBA level, I turned my hobby of translation into my main source of income. I am an avid learner of all things and passionate about languages. New challenges always welcome!

I speak several languages at a basic or intermediate level, but am fluent in English (UK) and Spanish (Chilean), having grown up in the UK and lived in Chile for the past 20 years. As such, I translate in both directions with ease and can accommodate other dialects of these languages. My areas of specialisation are law (especially contracts and legal opinion), business (especially finance and marketing) and academic papers. I aim to expand to international organisations in the medium term.

I completed my CIoL Diploma in Translation (Spanish-English) at the beginning of 2018 (member ID50057) and am continuing to strengthen my specialisation fields.

I have been translating since my university days, almost 20 years ago, for both private clients and companies (law firms, textbook publisher MacGraw-Hill, Codelco, International Journal Revisions, to name a few) in a wide area of subjects. I have been dedicated to translation full-time for three years now, and am looking forward to many more years.
