about me

Three years of professional experience way not seem like much, but in this time I have been able to translate numerous projects, the majority for National Geographic, a client for whom I work on a daily basis producing translations and online content (articles, photo and video galleries). With an average of 3,000 words a day, my clients value my quality, speed and professionalism. Since before I had finished my degree I also began performing work as an interpreter, taking part in projects supported by the European Union. Regarding my qualifications, I have a degree in Translation and Interpreting from the Universidad de Madrid and a Master’s in Audiovisual Translation from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Below you can see just some of the brands and organisations who have trusted me with their words.
