Certified and experienced translator
I’m a bilingual translator (English to Spanish and vice versa) from Madrid, Spain, where I currently live. I have more than six years’ experience translating professionally.
After finishing my undergraduate degree in physics at La Laguna University I settled for a while in the UK, first in Edinburgh and then in London. That "while" turned into nine whole years!
There I worked as a science and technology technician which allowed me to acquire in-depth knowledge of the English language, both in general and in those fields. I trained as a translator at Westminster University and earned a Diploma in Translation from the Institute of Linguists, with a specialisation in science and technology.
As a freelance translator since 2009, I’ve worked for different corporate clients on documents and reports for multinational companies like BP and Nissan. I’ve mainly worked in the environmental sciences, IT, energy & risk assessment, often on a team with engineers and technicians.
My interests, however, are much broader, and I am now studying philosophy at the Spanish distance learning university, UNED. I’ve also translated in the field of social sciences and research for publishing houses like Volapük and FAL.

The cost of a translation is worked out on word count times the amount per word agreed with the client, depending on the type and nature of the text, length, deadlines, etc. Typical rates go from 0.05 to USD to 0.11 USD, or the equivalent amount in Euros or GBP.
