Pilar de Vicente Servio

Pilar de Vicente Servio – Translator

Experienced Spanish translator for authors such as Helen Fielding, Dinah Jefferies and Marvin Harris at Alianza Editorial and Grupo Anaya.


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.

- Verifiable references at publishing houses Alianza Editorial, Ediciones Pirámide, Anaya Infantil y Juvenil and Grupo Anaya.

- Fast delivery times.

- Flexibility, motivation and openness for continuous improvement.

- The authors I have translated include Helen Fielding, Dinah Jefferies and Marvin Harris.

My qualifications include a BA in English, another in Translation and Interpreting, along with Creative Writing graduate courses completed at Cornell University. Furthermore, I am committed to lieflong learning and like to stay up to date by participating in style, editing, and creative writing online courses.

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.
