I provide Spanish- and Portuguese-to-English translation services, as well as English localisation services from my home on the windy west coast of Scotland. I am a native speaker of both UK and US variants of English.
Over the last several years, I've translated for the Spanish public sector, private companies in the UK and US, non-profit organisations, international corporations and individual clients.
In addition to working in the fields listed above, I also have a somewhat niche specialism in library and information science, stemming from my experience in library work.
Having worked in front-line roles for many years, I am well versed in understanding and anticipating client needs, so excellent customer care is always at the heart of my services.
