Work experience

Freelance editor & translator (Spanish & Catalan > English)

Self-employed
October, 2011 – Present (about 8 years)

In 2011, I launched the publishing initiative Poble Sec Books, which offers editorial services to authors and businesses. Poble Sec Books can write, copy-edit and proofread content for your website, brochure, catalogue, manual, online or print publication. We will ensure your message is clear, engaging and free of grammatical or spelling errors. If you have a rough draft of what you want to say, we can rewrite it in the best format possible – or else, based on your brief, create fresh content to promote your business.

In the publishing sector, we offer independent authors and companies book production services, including the writing of copy, editing, layout and jacket design services for both print and ebook. We also help new authors establish their online presence (simple website, blog, social media accounts, Amazon, etc.), outsourcing services as required. We specialise in non-fiction, memoir and a range of fiction genres.

A professional translator since 1995, I translate from Catalan-Valencian and Spanish into English while editing and project-managing other language combinations. I can source translators for most European languages, ensuring a fast, professional turnaround and content that reads as if written by a native speaker. Contact me to translate academic theses, literary works, business documents, contracts, press releases, website content and much more.
