Service Description
I have been translating since 2008. I translate mainly to Polish, my native language or to Spanish, a language I use every day. Since 2009 I have been living in Spain (first in Madrid, now in Barcelona), what has helped me to develop my language competence and reach an approximate native speaker's level. During my stay in Spain I got to know the Spanish culture, what makes the communication process easier in case culture clashes arise.

I translate and interpret from Polish, English, Spanish and Catalan. My clients are private persons, companies, translation agencies and public insitutions. I will fully commit to every translation project I get and I will make an extra effort to deliver exactly what you need and just when you need. I approach every client individually, starting with an analysis of their needs and requirments. I guarantee the highest quality and a fast turnaround. All the translations I do are accurate and professional and all the data I receive is treated by me as confidential.
