Ester Vidal

Ester Vidal – Translator

English to Spanish. More than 30 books translated for traditional publishers and indie authors (fantasy, YA and children's literature).

Overview

I'm a professional full-time translator since 2017, and I translate from English, German and Italian into European Spanish and Catalan.

Apart from numerous children's books for all ages and genres (picture books, dictionaries, schoolbooks, activity books and stories), I have translated a series of books about psychology and the science fiction novel Il ritorno by Danilo Clementoni.
I am currently working on the YA fantasy pentalogy Die Legende von Gold und Jade by Mia Jacoba.

Since I am also a proofreader and reviewer, I take great care with all aspects of your book and have a hands-on approach in the revision process, working closely with my reviewers to ensure the best translation possible.

On a personal note, I love reading self-published authors on my Kindle, mostly romance novels, thrillers and fantasy.

Ester was a joy to work with. She translated my children's book into Spanish and finished it before our deadline. Her tips were very educational for me as this was my first translation. I will definitely be using her for future projects!

This was my second time working with Ester, and it was another great collaboration. She works quickly and effectively, and provides multiple phrasing options if requested. I hope to send a third project her way soon.
