Service Description

I work as a freelance translator for several multinational agencies, and now I am happy to offer my services here on Elance. You will benefit of more direct and personalized communications and a much lower price without a loss in quality, mainly because I give extra attention to my own clients' needs. Not only will I do the job you ask for, but I will also provide you with any linguistic and cultural advice you may need to achieve your communicative goals effectively.

I offer services of translation from English into Spanish and/or Catalan; proofreading; subtiling; website localization and app testing (Android and iOS).

My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: literature; marketing/commerce; tech/engineering; IT/computers; video games; films and documentaries and journalism.
