Overview

I have 20 years of experience working as a freelance translator (English-French into Spanish), copy editor and proofreader (in Spanish) in various areas, including the book publishing industry since 2007 (both fiction and non-fiction).

I have translated more than 50 books in a wide variety of subjects: biographies, art, photography, design, music, cinema, architecture, history, children books, cooking, gardening, lifestyle, self-improvement...

In fiction, I've taken part as a translator in two George R. R. Martin short story collections published in Spanish, and I am currently working in other science fiction projects for the same publisher as a freelance translator, copy editor and proofreader.

Since I am a natural-born communicator, and literature is one of my passions, I am in my element in the field of books and literary translation. As a thorough professional, I will always review my texts until they reach spick and span status to my perfectionist eye :)

I'm offering my translation expertise —and my passion for languages and literature— to writers publishing in English or French and seeking to have their books translated for the Spanish market.

Teresa did a phenomenal job with the Spanish translation. She was very thorough and was prompt when answering my questions. I look forward to working with her again.
