I studied a BA (Hons) in French and Spanish at the University of Manchester, which was where I first received training in translation. My degree mixed core language modules with the study of translation, linguistics and wider aspects of French, Spanish and Latin American culture. Through my studies I developed the ability to translate a variety of journalistic, literary and specialised texts in a range of different registers and styles using specialised language appropriate to each context.
I gained professional experience as a translator working as a content editor at Wanup, a hotel loyalty club and booking engine. In this role I translated SEO content, presentations, email marketing, legal texts and blog posts from Spanish and French into English, following the brand’s tone of voice. I’m currently working as a content editor in collaboration with clothing chain Bershka. In this role I translate and transcreate web texts and newsletters from Spanish into English in order to create a more defined brand image in the UK market.
My goal now is to establish strong working relationships and broaden my experience as a freelance translator.
