I am a freelance translator for a series of publishing houses in Spain and England and an ESOL (ESL) & EFL tutor.

As a freelancer I translate fiction (children, teen (YA) & adult), from English into Catalan. I also translate teachers' books for teachers of English in Spanish-speaking countries; these translations are from Spanish into Catalan and English into Spanish.

As a freelancer I have also written over 50 reviews on children's Italian and English originals. My job was to decide whether such novels should be translated into either Spanish or Catalan.

My teaching career began in the People's Republic of China in 1999. During the three years I lived in the country I taught a series of undergraduate courses to students doing a BA in English studies, and to those qualifying to become middle-school English teachers.
In Bangladesh I taught EFL to both Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy students at the Bangladesh Health Professions Institute. Back in Europe I taught ESOL and ICT in Oxford for four years before moving to the US.

I currently live in California where I mostly do literary translations and teach Spanish and Italian to English speakers. 

Some of the novels and picture books I have translated:
