Professional practices Peter Selman endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Highly motivated and extremely conscientious, I am the go-to man for my valued translation and proofreading clients. I have studied languages with a passion since topping my French class as an 11-year-old in 1993, perfecting my talents at the prestigious University of Warwick, England, the Pontificia Universidad Católica, Chile and the Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP), Spain. After mastering Spanish, stints in Brazil and Catalonia led to fluency in Portuguese and Catalan. My language-learning thirst and curiosity resulted in vastly improving my A-level French and picking up Galician.

I get the job done. Top quality translations. Meticulously proofread texts. On time. At a reasonable price. My clients see me as Mr Reliable. Send me an email? Fast response. Want to contact me via Skype, WhatsApp or cell phone? Fantastic. I apply the high standards and dedication that led me to become World Guide of the Year in my previous job, and the discipline and hard work that saw me earn a black belt in Taekwondo. Now, I want to help you.

No job is perfect. We all know that. But translation is a profession I actively enjoy, blending my life-long habit of learning languages with a keen interest in writing (I blog regularly on travel at I would be delighted to apply my skills and passion to render your texts as naturally and accurately as possible in English. I want to make you happy.

I have worked on projects for the European Commission, the FAO, the UN, Facebook, Google, Credit Suisse, the Governments of Angola and Catalonia, and many others. Now, I want to be your go-to man.
