I have always been passionate about languages and ever since I was a child the foreign films with subtitles my father used to watch beguiled me. Generally, this foreign language was English, so I always leaned towards it. I was encouraged by my parents and teachers to study languages and before I was 18, I could manage in English and French and I had some knowledge of German, Latin, and Ancient Greek. This passion led me to choose English language and literature as my undergraduate degree and I soon discovered that translation was my real passion.
I decided to specialise in audio-visual and literary translation, but I learnt that I found teaching and academia equally fascinating.
Today I describe myself as translator, educator, and content creator.
I found out how much I loved teaching children and young adults when I started working as a camp leader at the age of 19. Ever since, I have not stopped learning and applying my knowledge in different contexts.
Currently, I am focused on teaching at the University of Valencia, where I teach English, English for specific purposes and translation. In addition, I also teach translation specialisation courses within the private sector.
In my years as a translator, I have been involved in projects related to different areas.
I have worked with popular science; academic articles; legal documents; marketing campaigns; marketing ebooks; art exhibition texts; instructions; handbooks for children activities and tales.
In addition, I have participated in subtitling projects for films and television, YouTube videos and training videos, as well as corporate videos. I have also worked on translation for dubbing and lip sync for films and TV series for television and digital platforms, and translation for voice-over for documentaries and reality shows.
I believe continuous training is a must in this fast-paced world. I like keeping up to date with my sector’s trends.
