“To offer reliable translations but also to offer outstanding customer service which will entice clients to come back.”
After living in the UK for ten years and working in a number of managerial roles, I have decided to pursue a career in what has always been my passion, translation. In order to be able to translate professionally it is not enough to enjoy doing it or to speak a language correctly, one needs to be trained to do it. I have an English degree from Madrid´s Complutense University as well as a Masters in Translation from Bristol´s University of the West of England, UWE.
I collaborate with translation agencies such as Smartling, VerbalizeIt, Welocalize, Locteam or Adapt Worldwide carrying out translation, interpreting, transcription and review services and acquiring very valuable experience translating social science and geopolitical texts as well as translating for some of the technological and e-commerce industry’s biggest names such as Apple, Nvidia or Udemy. I am currently the Spanish language lead for a pool of translators for a very important client with Welocalize. I am also the remote Spanish Language Lead for a very important technological company with Adapt Worldwide.
I worked for Electronic Arts as a video game certification tester for 5 months. The job consisted in testing all the video games that EA is releasing to market for potential bugs to comply with first party requirements as well as protecting the brand for potential bad reputation, should the product not meet the company´s high standards. The games were tested thoroughly in all areas including the linguistic department to ensure all content had been fully localized and error free. Strong English language skills, attention to detail, creativity, analytical mindset, patience and passion for games were some of the abilities necessary to perform this role.
I have a great deal of experience working for John Lewis, one of the most prestigious UK companies, which is internationally renowned for its outstanding customer service. That is why my customer service is always extraordinary and my main objective is the customer´s happiness. I am sure that if we work together you will call me again if you need a translator.
