English (United Kingdom)
¡Hola!/Olá! I hold an MA Honours degree in Hispanic Studies, which encompassed advanced-level study of Spanish and Portuguese languages as well as translation. I also recently completed a certificate course in Spanish to English translation. Having grown up on both sides of the Atlantic, I am a native speaker of both British and American variants of English. Consequently, as well as translation services, I am able to offer UK-US English localisation services and have successfully done so for various clients thus far.
Specialisms: Library & Information Science, Social Sciences/Psychology, Market research, Food/Cookery, Travel & Tourism
Linguistic and cultural knowledge:
I have lived and worked in several places in northern Spain, where I taught English in schools and provided private tuition to university students and adult learners. After travelling the length and breadth of the Iberian Peninsula, including six weeks in Portugal, I returned to Scotland and have since helped teach Spanish to young children, worked as an in-house translator, and in school and academic libraries.
