My passion for languages started with my summer holidays as a child. We used to go to Menorca every year and I always wanted to try to speak to the locals and staff in their language! At school, the only thing I wanted to do was study languages and I went on to study Spanish and Italian at the University of Leeds. As part of my degree I spent a term in Florence in Italy and a year in Granada in the south of Spain. It was in Granada in 2004 that I began translating professionally after receiving an opportunity through the university. This really consoldated my language skills and I graduated with a first class degree in 2005. I then completed a Masters in Screen Translation, specialising in subtitling, also at the University of Leeds.
After leaving university, I worked as a Project Manager and Team Leader for several companies in the translation industry, both in the UK and in Spain. This has given me valuable experience managing projects involving translation, interpreting, desktop publishing, subtitling and voiceovers. Over the years, I have managed multilingual projects for clients in all kinds of industries, from electronics companies to tourist boards, manufacturing companies to law firms and advertising agencies to retail clients. Therefore, you can be sure that I am accustomed to reviewing my translators' qualifications and experience and selecting the right translator for the job. Not only that, when I give you a delivery date, I stick to it.
Whilst working in the translation industry, I also continued to translate in my spare time and have more recently dedicated myself to translation on a full-time basis. I specialise in the following fields:
Travel and tourism
Marketing and advertising
Retail and fashion
Wine and oenology
I also carry out translations in a number of other fields and collaborate with translators who can cover the fields I don't, so please get in touch for a free quote.
