Pilar de Vicente Servio – Translator

Experienced Spanish translator with a focus on women's fiction and historial fiction. Let me help your story reach a wider audience.


l fell in love with stories even before I was old enough to read, so it only made sense to turn this lifelong passion into my career by becoming a professional translator. Today I'd love to put my experience and attention to detail to work by helping YOUR story reach a wider audience - who knows who it will inspire?

What I offer:
- Extensive verifiable experience in traditional publishing. I have translated over 30 books from English and German into Spanish, including the final installment in the Bridget Jones's Diary series.
- Bespoke analysis of your book, including tone, register, terminology, target audience and overarching themes.
- Fast delivery times.
- Flexibility, motivation and openness for continuous improvement.

Work experience


Aug, 2005 — Present

I regularly translate novels for Grupo Anaya, the biggest publishing group in Spain. Over the years, I have worked with authors like Helen Fielding, Dinah Jefferies and Marvin Harris.
I specialize in historical fiction, including historical mysteries, and women's fiction, but I have also had the opportunity of translating a number of non-fiction works on topics such as psychology, anthropology, mindfulness and child upbringing.
Finally, I have translated a handful of young adult novels.
Seeing my work published both in traditional book format and as ebooks always fills me with joy.
