In my own words:

 

I am a translator, teacher and linguist by education. I have developed a natural talent in communication into a means for reaching out to and catering for different industries and work settings. 

 

Looking back, words are a continuum in my work life, having worked as a language teacher, a manager of health practices, as a content creator for textbooks, as a translator dealing with ranging topics such as environment, osteopathy and physiotherapy, cosmetics, psychology, interpreted at art festivals, in hospitality and trade conventions, and much more. As Textures now, I consider that words are not just a tool for communication. They are facilitators for communicating culture, ideas and projects.


At Textures, I make the most of the opportunities of working, living and studying in different cultures, continents and context. I have experienced a range of business needs and opportunities to grow and learn from all of these: words are my contribution.

  

My linguistic skills and subject knowledge are constantly improved and updated. As a member of ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting), I abide to their Code of Conduct and quality standards. Equally, we expect the same standards across Textures collaborators. These are among the achievements I am proud of:

  • offer English, Spanish, French, and Dutch in our range
  • completing a BA in Linguistics across universities in the United States, Scotland and Spain (Universidad de Granada y Almería, Mount Holyoke College, University of Edinburgh)
  • obtained a degree in Translation
  • completed a Master´s degree in Teaching
  • completed a PhD in Literature 
  • achieving a Technical Dental Health certificate
  • numerous CPD courses in translation, interpretation and other fields. The most recent are:
    • World Climate Forum 2021
    • Physical Health at Work, 2021
  • member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, Proz and volunteer for Translators without Borders and Empower Amsterdam

 

If you are considering Textures linguistic services or have other inquiries, get in touch and we will work together on your text and your message. Contact Textures through our human-attended communication box (me!) and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
