Freelance translator


I started as a freelance translator while I was still studying my Degree in Translation and Interpreting. Soon, my interest for technical translation led me to localisation. For some time, I worked for a multimedia localisation company as a freelance translator, mainly working on videogames, websites and online documentation.

As a freelance translator, I have also been part of the translation team of the UNESCO Encyclopaedia of Humanity. For over a year, I dealt with a number of chapters on different topics and historic periods.

I am a strong supporter of freeware and usefull applications developed by small companies struggling to get in the market. This is why I started to get in touch with developers to collaborate in the localisation of their products into Spanish. MetaTexis is a good example of this policy. I have provided the translation of the software interface and website for this new CAT tool.
