English-Spanish translator, author and editor

Languages are my passion, and all my work revolves around them, including being a published author. With a background in Humanities (MA, PhD Archaeology), my language abilities quickly led me to work as a linguist, first briefly in the press field and then as a Spanish teacher and examiner at Durham University (UK). After working there for several years, I returned to my native Spain where, having obtained the relevant English certificates, I became a freelance English teacher and translator. When it comes to translation, my aim is always to deliver the most suitable and accurate text for each client. My academic and working experience, both in the UK and in Spain, enhance all my tasks. I realise now I was localising before I knew it was a thing! For the duration of 2021, I worked as a localization manager of a team of six Spanish translators, creating digital content for a STEM award-winning virtual lab simulations platform. I have also developed a keen and informed interest in sustainability throughout my translation years, having helped transcreate content for clients with a sustainable vision for their businesses. I can translate on localization management softwares (Transifex, Trados, Lokalise, etc), directly on websites through the use of plugins (e.g. Polylang and TranslatePress on WordPress) and on Adobe InDesign. So, whether you are translating books, marketing and digital material or academic texts, you can be confident that I will work with you to deliver your message to your chosen audience.

Testimonials

Endorsements from past clients

"María and I have worked on a long-term project during the last year. I can't thank her enough for all she has taught all the Spanish team (7 translators), not only from a linguistic perspective, but also for all the personal skills she has showed to have when delivering the work to the highest standard. When it comes to leadership, she has been one of the best supervisors I have had the pleasure to work with: an extremely hard-working person with tons of proactivity when solving setbacks, very good communication skills when addressing the team members, adaptability, resilience and, more importantly, a great and kind person who brings positivism, empathy and motivation, among others. To whom is looking for an ideal worker to take his/her project to the next level, look no further!"
