About me
I have extensive knowledge and expertise in industries related to:

- Telecommunications (satellite, fixed/mobile data/telephony & digital broadcasting)
- Investment banking (investment strategy, reports and advice on impact of political and economic events on investment)
- Finance (annual reports, audits)
- Pharmaceuticals (nutrition, phytotherapy, cosmetics)
- Retail (products, pricing, promotion, placement, market studies, customer loyalty, concept stores)
- Environment (waste management, recycling, clean water initiatives, eco-packaging, labelling)
- Hotels/Tourism (hotel feasibility studies, development strategy, hotel management; museum guides and exhibitions; travel guides)
- Iron/Steel (manufacturing processes, policy, recycling)
- Design/Fashion (luxury brands, clothing and accessories, furniture design).

Other business specialities include: marketing, customer relationship management, public relations, human relations, corporate strategy and communications. I have translated hundreds of such texts for the above industries and sectors. I also love politics and sport and am very comfortable translating such texts.

I have a business degree, the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation and a professional qualification in technical translation from the American University of Paris. Translating from French and Spanish into English, I worked for six years as an in-house translator working for the European Telecommunications Satellite Organization (in Paris). I also worked in-house for a US sports management/events company and a major French hotel group.

I have lived and worked in London, Paris, Washington D.C. and now Madrid.

I use the MemoQ CAT tool.
