Translation

Over two decades of translating Spanish and Catalan into English allows me to offer you a broad range of specialisations:

  • Advertising
  • Art and architecture
  • Business and commercial
  • Education
  • Film and television, including subtitling
  • Legal
  • Medical & health care
  • Tourism
  • Other areas of the humanities. See below for further specialisations.

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.

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.

Because I am a trained copy-editor, your final translation will benefit from a keen eye for detail and thorough knowledge of grammar, syntax and style. I believe in ongoing training to offer you continually improving services, like producing content directly in English.

Lastly, as a published author with honours degrees in Literature and Comparative Literatures, your final content will be shaped by an experienced writer. I place my love of words at your service.
