My specialist subjects:
I have a wide scope of knowledge in numerous fields including multimedia, instruction manuals, geography, general medicine, software and science, and particularly ornithology. Residence in Spain for several years has given me a sound knowledge of the language, including slang terms, as well as of the smaller details of Spanish culture.
Recent projects include:
Academic articles on global warming, carbon footprints and renewable energies.
Ongoing translation of documentation and exhibition labels for a Spanish science museum.
Catalogue of cements, mortars and other building materials.
Documents on shoe design and manufacture.
Articles on marine botany.
I have completed an MSc in Translation and Technology at the University of Heriot Watt (Edinburgh), passing both the diploma and the dissertation stages with distinction.
I also hold a BA in Spanish Language and Literature Major with French Minor - University of Leeds, UK.
Extensive period of residence in Spain.
Experience in technical (multimedia) and business translation, especially instruction manuals. I have hands on experience of working in a business environment in Spain.
