Overview

Reading and writing is my passion for as long as I can remember. I wanted to make a career of it, so I studied a 5-year Degree in Translation and Interpreting. I completed my studies in 2011 and I’ve been working as a full-time freelance translator, localizator, proofreader and copywriter ever since. Now I’m based in Berlin, an inspiring city that gave me the opportunity to explore other job opportunities, such as a language teaching position in the University, just so I can reaffirm what I already knew, that translation is what I love the most and what I do best.


I only get involved with projects I believe in. Smooth communication and confidence are key factors in order for a project to succeed. Choosing me is choosing quality, commitment and results.


"Working with Ana involves good communication and speed. She was so involved in the last project that not only she focused on the linguistics, but also verified and corrected historical data."

— Manel Cráneo (Demo Editorial Manager)
