Do you need a high-quality translation?


The key to an accurate and successful translation is to deliver a document that reads smoothly and sounds as if it were originally written in the target language. In order to achieve this level of precision, many factors must be taken into account –the target audience, the purpose of the translated document, and the most suitable regional language variant and register.

Keep things simple and hire a professional translator:

– Personal attention and availability even after delivery of the translated documents

– Quality assurance: Continuing and specialised education on legal, commercial and technical translation allows delivering excellent translations while continuously improving the overall quality

– Proofreading and style review guarantee the optimal text formatting suitable to the scope of each text

My target: Highly accurate translations in a fluent and natural style.
Other language services: Proofreading, copy-editing, verbatim transcripts.

Language services

General translation

I translate texts and presentations in English, German, and Italian into my mother tongue, Spanish, and deliver them in different formats. Translations from Spanish into any of these languages are made in cooperation with highly reliable qualified translators, who work into their respective mother languages. In so doing, we ensure a high quality professional product.

Additionally, I cooperate with professional translators that work with other languages: Galician, Portuguese, French, and Russian. Should you require a translation of any of these languages, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to help.

My translation experience includes working for translation agencies, as well as for private customers and companies from a variety of industries: Manufacturing and export of machinery and industrial items, transportation, tourism and hotel management, architecture, clothing, publishers, employee training tools, teaching materials, cultural products, videogames, and software apps, among others.

I adapt to the particular requirements and features of every project and I communicate promptly and effectively with my customers. Send me a message if you need a quote.

Proofreading and copy-editing in Spanish

Your best business card is a text free of language errors and stylistic imperfections; a text that works as a persuasive tool for your project, accurately adapted to the style and register that best suits your target audience. If you want to fine-tune your presentations and texts, hire a thorough proofreader who gives special attention to grammar, typography and spelling, vocabulary and structure of translations into Spanish or of texts originally written in this language. For this, I apply the latest language norms, ensuring a clean, unerring result.

My raw material is language at its best, and the specialised use of its multiple options. I edit texts in order to adapt them to different formats and styles. Please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know about your specific needs and requirements.
