Native Spanish Translator, Copywriter, Proofreader...

United Kingdom - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 10

I’ve always been fascinated by language; its structure, its ways, its creativity and its never-ending possibilities. That’s why I have a master’s degree in Linguistics and Literature, and why I have formed a solid career on everything regarding text. The most amazing thing? Language never stops to fascinate me! As an English to Spanish translator, I take extreme care in making each text sound exactly as if a native Spanish speaker would have written it. And not only a native speaker, but a professional writer. I'm a copywriter and every text I translate is also a text I copyedit. I understand the true importance of language in getting communication to work, so whether I work with academic, fiction or non-fiction texts, I always make sure that the writing flows clearly and with harmony, capturing the essence in every word, and mostly, the intended meaning of every text. I'll be pleased to answer any further questions you have in order to tackle new translation, copywriting, proofreading or writing projects, so please don’t hesitate in contacting me for any reason!
