Overview

Nice to meet you, dear author!

I am a highly-skilled English to Spanish professional translator with 30 years of experience working for some of the most renowned Spanish publishing houses. I was the official translator for the Peanuts and Garfield comic strips, and I was part of the team that translated the Guinness Book of Records for many years.

I have built a reputation as a highly responsible, dedicated, and meticulous translator. Likewise, I always meet the deadlines agreed upon with the client.

I will be thrilled to translate or proofread your novel or non-fiction book and start a fruitful working relationship!
