40 years in translation!

After 40 years as a translator (7 of them full-time), I can handle almost anything, except some very specialized subjects (e.g., medicine). Overall, I must have translated by now over 26 million words.

My long career in many different jobs (apart from translation) has also resulted in a significant know-how and intellectual baggage that allows me to provide you with the highest quality translations. A brief summary:

  • Native Spanish, fully bilingual in English.
  • Sworn translator of German for the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1981).
  • Works as freelance translator since 1977 and started working as full-time translator in 1982 at an aerospace company.
  • Degree in Computer Sciences by the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain.
  • Certificate in German by the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas of Madrid, Spain.
  • French Baccalauréat (High School)
  • Translations from Dutch/English/French/German/Spanish -> English/Spanish

For further details, please download my CV.
Note that so as to provide you with the highest quality, I only translate into the two languages where I am truly bilingual: English and Spanish.

Services provided

All kinds of general-purpose and technical translations, in particular in the IT and aerospace fields.
I can handle almost any kind of technical and scientific translation, as well as general purpose texts and some specialized fields like finance and law. Rest assured that I will not try to translate a text that I feel is outside my scope of knowledge - I will notify you immediately if this should be the case.

Website translations.
I keep a blog on the subject of website translation. Not only do I develop and translate all kinds of websites; you can also request a tailored budget in case that you want to perform multilingual SEO (search engine optimization).

Book translation and publishing
Being the author of several books (Spanish and English), I can provide both literary and technical book translations. Most of my books can be found at Amazon. I have also translated several novels, the latest being this book into Spanish and this series into English. My personal author page can be found here.
I offer book translation as well as turn-key book publishing services (paper and ebook).
So if you are thinking about publishing or translating your book, don't hesitate to contact me!
