Carla B. Estruch – Translator

Hi! I'm Carla, a Spanish queer translator with more than 5 years of experience and 40 books translated from English to Spanish.

Overview

The best thing I can say about myself is that I love my job. I love stories, reading them and translating them. Over the years, I have translated some of my favorite books into Spanish for the traditional market, and now I search to expand my prospects and discover new voices and stories.


I have translated YA and adult books, mostly fantasy and science fiction, by authors like Nnedi Okorafor, Zen Cho, Becky Chambers, and Ava Reid. Nowadays I am translating more contemporary fiction, memoirs and horror. I have also translated more than 50 short stories from all around the world.


I really enjoy discovering new perspectives and, as a queer person, I am interested in LGBTQIA+ narratives, both for young and adult readers. I have translated books by trans authors such as Neon Yang, Elliot Page, and Akwaeke Emezi. I am well versed in nonbinaries narratives and language, having translated more than 10 books with nonbinary characters.


I have two cats, a dog, and more books than I can count. I love coffee, the winter in the Mediterranean and dragons. This year I started taking art lessons and currently I am trying different techniques to see which is the one I love the most.


If you are looking for a versatile translator specialized in queer fantasy, science fiction and non-fiction, drop me a line!
