My Story

How did I become a successful professional Spanish translator?

This is my story…

Since 2013

Quality translations for a world without borders


My education

I have always been passionate about languages, I’m an avid reader and I have a curious mind. Those are the three key characteristics of an excellent translator and the reason I chose to pursue a BA in Translation & Interpreting (Universidad de Valladolid). During my degree I also became a Sworn Translator appointed by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After my degree I moved to London, where I completed an MA in Legal Translation (City University London) and gained the necessary knowledge to translate legal texts.


My experience

My first in-house job was at the IOPC Funds, an international organisation, where I worked as a Proofreader reviewing translations in the legal and maritime fields. Afterwards I started at Tag, a global advertising BPO company, where I worked as a Linguistic QA Manager reviewing translations in the logistics field for DHL.

I combined my in-house jobs with freelance translations for law firms, notary firms, international companies, translation agencies and private individuals.


My business

After nearly a decade in the UK, in 2021 I moved to Alicante (Spain), where I established a beautiful home office. With the expertise acquired through my qualifications and my extensive experience in the translation industry I decided to create Legal & Sworn, a business providing quality Spanish translations for the legal, immigration and logistics industries.
