Bio

“Without translation, we would be living in provinces bordering on silence”

                   
                     
                     
                     
                     
                     
          George Steiner

 

    Translatorproofreader and
posteditor
 from English and French to Spanish and Catalan. Generalist and specialised
in technical texts on crochet and knitting
patterns 
(7 years of practice), and with experience in the
translation of legal contracts, business sciences and pharmaceutical texts
and in the fields of literature (African postcolonial literature)

    As a graduate in English Language and Literature, I have a
sound knowledge about the literature and culture of
English-speaking countries
theories of literary criticismSecond
Language Acquisition
 as well as about all the terminology and
foundations of the linguistic field (syntax, morphology,
phonetics and phonology, grammar, semantics, history of language…).

    Furthermore, I am familiar with CAT tools —SDL Trados—, and with the
creation of filters for the translation of Wordpress
structures
 and HTML4, HTML5 and XML codification.

Main strengths: disciplined, detail-oriented, tenacious, curious and
communicative.
