Portfolio

I’ve included a few examples of my published works in this section. This is just a handful of the projects I’ve been involved in since I started translating professionally in 2005. Many of my jobs are short or for internal use only, while others are protected by confidentiality agreements I have signed with my clients.

Zoo Animals Books

MY ZOO ANIMALS, A COLLECTION OF 60 BOOKS FOR CHILDREN

UK-based print and digital agency Vespa Design commissioned me to translate a series of hardback books for pre-school children in 2015-2016. Each issue of My Zoo Animals describes a different species of animal, its habitat and behaviour, and includes stories, puzzles and games. With a total word count of approximately 120,000 words, this challenging project gave me the opportunity to work with a younger target readership in mind.

Technology Textbook

TECHNOLOGY TEXT BOOK FOR OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS

In 2012, I translated and adapted a Technology text book for Oxford University Press España as part of their CLIL project. I translated the 240-page student's book as well as the 60,000-word teacher’s book.

This project also involved the creation of new language-based activities to help Spanish students practise their English, and I wrote audio scripts for listening activities provided on the accompanying CD.

Alpujarra guidebook

GUIDEBOOK TO THE ALPUJARRA

In collaboration with Granada-based translation agency Babel Traducciones and fellow freelance translator Sarah Magee, I translated half of a 130,000-word guide book to the Alpujarra in southern Spain.

Although the text was predominantly about the region's culture and history, there were also large sections on its botany and wildlife.
