I have a BA (Hons) in Spanish & Portuguese from Trinity College, Cambridge (2015), and have lived and worked in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - the latter as a translator, revisor, content writer and editor. My specialisms are in the linguistic varieties of these countries and regions, but I am comfortable translating from any written or spoken variety of Spanish, and from any written variety of Portuguese and spoken variety of Brazilian Portuguese.
As well as 4 months' experience as a translator and revisor between Portuguese, English and Spanish in Rio de Janeiro, I undertook an assessed extended translation project during the penultimate and final years of my degree, and have just completed a 4-week project translating responses for an ethnographic study from Mexican Spanish to English for a major international bank (both video and written responses).
Having studied various translation theories, I take time to analyse each project and its aims, and adopt an appropriate translation strategy for every translation I undertake. Both my university translation project and recent ethnographic study worked with non-standard, vernacular and regionally-unique forms of the languages, often riddled with typos, misspelled or incorrect words, and a lack of correct punctuation and grammar. I am therefore experienced not only in the translation of formal and professional documents, but also happy to work with more problematic linguistic situations.
