I endeavour to be an enthusiastic and creative professional translator/ proofreader.
I completed a degree in Translation and Interpretation in 2008, but previously had studied English Philology 1993-1996.

I tried my hand at technical translation collaborating closely, for 5+ years, with the Technical Manager of a canmaking factory in Zaragoza (Grumetal-Massilly), before actually being a professional freelance translator.

I have been freelancing since since my graduation for some agencies in the fields of marketing, advertising, technical fields (packaging, lubricants, automotive, technical manuals, computer applications, industrial production, agribusiness, etc.).

Although I find any topic appealing, my passion is working on issues related to sustainability, environment, ecology, social economy, development aid, human rights, appropriate technologies, biomass, renewable energy and related topics.
