I am American, but have a great deal of experience translating into both British and neutral English. I lived in Spain for 12 1/2 years and worked and socialized almost exclusively with British nationals. I traveled extensively throughout Spain and have an extensive knowledge of Spanish culture and practices.


I hold degrees in Classical Studies, Art History and History.
