My deep knowledge and understanding of the English and Spanish languages and cultures was developed through living, studying and working in the United Kingdom over 25 years, as well as in several Spanish speaking countries including Perú, Argentina and Venezuela.
My plan to become a professional translator came true as soon as the youngest member of the family became more independent and I was able to focus on post-graduate studies.
These include a Bachelor of Science degree (BSc Hons), a Master's degree (MA) in Translation from the University of Bristol (UoB) and a certificate as a Teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language accredited by the Universidad Europea de Madrid (UEM).
I started out as a volunteer translating for non-profit organisations, such as Fauna & Flora International and UN Volunteers who work hard to make a difference.
Later, I was directly contracted by NGOs operating mainly in the fields of international development and environmental conservation.
Additionally, I taught Spanish as foreign language to private students and at courses run by private and publicly funded organisations.
Constantly striving to faithfully convey the message of the original text as intended by its author, taking into consideration relevant geo-cultural differences in order to serve the same purpose.
Fully committed to continuous professional development.
