Description
I provide professional Spanish to English translations in the fields of international development, the environment, energy and social sciences. I have a PhD in Translation Studies from the University of Edinburgh and have worked as a translator since 2006, helping businesses, NGOs, not-for profit organisations and academics communicate in English and present a professional image to their target audience.
