Bio
Please see my CV for more details

I am a translator of three languages into English; Spanish, French and Portuguese . I mainly work with UK and European translation agencies translating legal texts, certificates, contacts, and the translation or transcreation of marketing documents, press releases and product brochures. In addition, being a qualified accountant, and having extensive experience of Finance and Financial Software, my specialities are naturally related to Finance, Accounting and Software . In addition I have worked with various Spanish universities in the translation of academic journal articles from Spanish to English in the fields of Literature and Architecture.
I have also done important translations for museums and cultural institutions.
A sample translation is available with this profile. I can also provide references, a list of translation projects and a record of my CPD.
Lately, I have acquired considerable experience in translating contract and agro-industry documents from Brazilian Portuguese .

I have an MA in Translation Studies from the University of Birmingham , and a 1st class honours degree in Spanish and French from the same university. During this time I also spent three years studying Portuguese. I have also studied at the University of Zaragoza in Spain and at Aix en Provence in France. I have written essays and articles in French and Spanish on Art History and Literature for these universities.

Currently, in addition to my translation work, I have established an internet business teaching English to Spanish professionals, working with several companies for whom I also do translation work.

As a freelance translator, I believe in offering the highest quality of service to the client. I am to fulfill all aspects of the brief through research, attention to detail and respecting the deadline.
