Why is that?
Successful translation should go unnoticed. When you read the translated text, it should ring as true as if penned by a native writer. The translator’s skill lies in erasing their presence so your readers believe it was written in their language. My years of experience as a writer help me shape your final copy. I place my love of words at your service.
In what areas can I translate?
Over two decades translating Spanish and Catalan into English means I can offer these and many other specialisations:
- Art and architecture
- Business and commercial
- Film and television, including subtitling
- Medical and health care
- Other areas of the humanities. See below for further specialisations.
Because I am a trained copyeditor, your final translation will benefit from a keen eye for detail and thorough knowledge of grammar, punctuation and style. I believe in ongoing training to offer you continually improving services, like creating content directly in English.
The latest translation tools like Trados SDL and OmegaT enable me to offer you accuracy and standardisation of terminology. They also mean faster turn-around times. And not only do I translate your words: I convey your company’s values and brand in a voice as unique and original as you are.
UK or US English
As a native speaker, I write primarily in British English and am also at ease with American usage. I live in Barcelona, but remain close to the UK culturally and professionally. This keeps me attuned with how English is evolving. So the content I deliver resonates with today’s readers.
