Marketing, corporate communication
Texts published in corporate or industry publications play a vital role in building and reinforcing a company’s image. The same principle applies to the content of web sites. The way language is used in such texts transmits many messages about a company and the products or services provided. I work hard to ensure that these messages are the right ones. This means taking the time to produce a translation that sounds natural and is at least as effective as the source text from which it is created.

Business, finance, economics
My experience in these areas covers a wide range of text types and subject matter, including: audit reports, business valuations, due diligence reviews, outsourcing of services, analysis of labour risks, the 2005 Sustainability Report for the Agbar Group, reports submitted to public bodies in Spain to justify plant closures and relocations, a plan for accompanying social measures (collective redundancy dismissals), a study on the effects of EU enlargement on the Spanish economy, articles and research proposals for the IESE Business School, and a report on a local economic development initiative.

Please have a look at my portfolio (above) to see some samples of my work in this area.

Legal
I have translated a wide range of legal texts, including birth and marriage records, contracts, laws and decrees, witness statements, court decisions, and correspondence between Irish and Spanish authorities. As a result, I have developed a high level of expertise in this area. When working on documents of this type, I take the time needed to ensure that the texts I produce are accurate and contain appropriate language.
