Bio

Background

As a native English speaker from the United Kingdom, and a professional Spanish to English freelance translator, editor and proofreader, I have been living, working and studying in Valencia, Spain since 2004. Living in Spain has enabled me to acquire an in-depth understanding of the Spanish (Castilian) language and culture, which is certainly beneficial when it comes to understanding Spanish texts. In addition, my partner Sandra is a native Spanish speaker who teaches English and translates from English to Spanish. Since we formed our bilingual team in 2003, our translation portfolio has been steadily increasing since we turned professional in 2007.

Education

To develop my Spanish and English language skills, I started a BA Modern Language degree in 2008 and completed my studies in 2014. The contents of this degree have provided me with a solid foundation for the translation projects I decide to take on. As regards Sandra, following a BA Degree in English Studies at Jaume I University in Castellón, Sandra accomplished a Postgraduate Certificate in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Valencia. All our credentials are verified here at Proz.com.

Subjects

I mainly specialise in journalism, marketing and tourism and travel since a large part of my work consists of translating magazine articles on luxury goods, tour guides, and product descriptions. As a teacher of the English language, Sandra naturally specialises in education and pedagogy, and we also cover other fields detailed on our CV, which is available on request.

Professionalism

Quality comes first for us. We believe that attention to detail, thorough research and the appropriate style are key factors in producing high-quality translations, and to deliver projects within the agreed time frame is as important to us, as it is for our clients. Furthermore, we are highly self-motivated and completely dedicated to making sure that our clients receive excellent translations, but do not just take my word for this as our positive client feedback at Proz.com speaks for itself.

Additional Information

In my leisure time, I enjoy reading fiction, non-fiction, playing golf and going walking around the wonderful city of Valencia and surrounding areas.

Sandra and I look forward to discussing your requirements.
