Having been raised in a multilingual environment due to my father's job as a Diplomat (which meant moving away and living in different countries every few years), with an American-British/Spanish family has provided me with a rich cultural background and the ability of speaking two mother tongues, English and Spanish, with the same level of proficiency.

Born in Madrid, Spain, I have lived in many countries but spent most of my childhood living mainly in the UK and the USA as well as a few years in Belgium and Italy. I attended primary and secondary schools in the above countries and graduated in 1994 from the American School of Madrid. I do hold however, a convalidation certificate of my studies from the Spanish Ministry of Education and a similar title for a convalidation of my secondary school education while in London from the Instituto Italiano di Cultura / Italian Consulate. I decided to further pursue my studies after graduation by studying political science at St. Louis University of Missouri and later on, law and translation in universities in both Spain and the UK.

TRADOS certified (I currently work with the new Trados Studio 2019) and a member of the UK's Translator's association and its Spanish counterpart ASETRAD as well as an elected member of the British Society of Authors.

My professional background is in defence, law (standard legal documents and agreements, medico-legal claims, intellectual property, tax and M&A), finance (including investment banking) and general business, energy generation and renewables, tourism and travel, medical (including pharmaceutical and clinical trials) and the luxury automotive sector, in particular classic cars.

I have also worked on numerous large projects in the Marine/Nautical sector where my experience and knowledge in diving, sailing, marine naturalism and underwater archaeology has proven invaluable. Former member of the executive board of the Iberian Association for Sharks and Stingrays, AITYR (Asociación Ibérica del Tiburon y la Raya) in Spain. I have given seminars on sailing terminology and hosted a number of nautical events, taking part in regattas and diving for over a decade.

During the past 20 years, I have completed numerous translation projects in a variety of fields, but mainly in the legal, defence, general business and tourism sectors. These projects have included both in-house positions and freelance translation work for the following leading companies:

Credit Suisse, Indra, SBB General Dynamics European Land Systems, Sociedad Anónima Placencia de las Armas (SAPA), SAAB, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Thales Group, Hispano Carrocera, Krauss-Maffei, STN ATLAS Elektronik GmbH, IVECO-PEGASO, Enel S.p.A., WEDECO, Occidental Hotels & Resorts, Clifford Chance, Colemans, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, BBVA, Pfizer, Orange, Vodafone, Quebec Energy, Wärtsilä Global, Fugro Emu Limited, Sunseeker, Pascall+Watson Architects.

Additionally I have provided translations for museums and international events such as FITUR (Feria Internacional del Turismo), as well as for major Spanish ministries and diplomatic missions.

Lastly, I have written, translated and published several books and articles on various topics including an award-winning book which was my first work. References available on request. For more information please see my cv or email me.

I look forward to assisting you on your next translation or editing project. I will provide you with a free quote and offer suggestions and options as to how best proceed.

Discounts available for first time clients and large translations / on-going work.
