Examples of the type of documents I translate are:

I have localised several printing programs of some of the major international manufacturers of printers. This localisation process includes the localisation of the binary files, the help files, the documentation, the manuals and the packing information.

Translation - Software, Websites and Videogames Localisation - Proofreading

I have a BA on Translation and Interpreting of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain). I chose English and French as my first and my second foreign language respectively.

During my course, I focused specially on technical and legal translation.

I spent one year on Ireland with the European Community programme Socrates-Erasmus exchange. I studied at the University of Limerick. During this year, I focused on improving my level of the English language and now I hold the Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English.

Technical translation and software localisation

I have worked on a localisation project managed by Dr. Detlef Reineke. This project involved the localisation of a software called SNAGIT, which is developed to make screen captions. On this project, I had the opportunity to adcquire a deep knowledge of some of the most important localisation and CAT tools: Passolo, Catalyst, Win RC trans, Trados, etc.

I have been a grant holder for a year on the computer room of the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), where I had the opportunity to improve my computer skills. Tasks involved where such as: helpdesk, software and hardware support, detection of computer virus and the use and update of specific antivirus software, management of the network environment, etc.

Legal translation

I have passed the modules of my course which access to the appointment of sworn translator given by the Spanish Foreign Office. I have experience on translating legal documents. I usually collaborate with the law firm Gascón Nasarre.

Information search and libraries

I obtained a scholarship of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to work on the library of the Humanities campus of the aforesaid university.

I worked with the catalogue of this library, which includes more than 700,000 copies of books, magazines, CDS, DVDS, maps, microfiches, videos, etc.

I become familiar with the UCD (Universal Decimal Classification) and with the numerus currens. I also worked on the creation of bibliographies and contents bulletins.
