I hold a university Degree in Chemistry and work as a freelance translator from English or French into Spanish in the health sciences field.
I was born in Extremadura, Spain, but my professional career has been developed in Madrid, where I live. I studied languages and hold a university Degree in Chemistry. I started working teaching English for a few years, and later on, I taught different subjects of chemistry (such as Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Engineering Chemistry) at university level. In 2002, combining the best of my knowledge of both worlds, science and languages, I became a freelance technical translator above all of patents. As chemistry is the basis of many fields of knowledge, my work has been related with different industrial products and applications like in biology, medicine, biochemistry, pharmacology, environment, nanotechnology or new materials to name a few. I work for companies, agencies, and also for industrial and intellectual property offices all over the world.
I have mainly worked for leading companies such as L’Oréal, Avon Products, Bayer, Glaxo, IBM, Honeywell, among others and leading industrial and intellectual property offices in Madrid such as Elzaburu, S. L. or technology companies such as Ventiv Technology. London. UK.
Besides of a translator, I also work as a proofreader, a localizer, and a scientific writer.
When I am not working, I can be attending courses or speeches to improve my knowledge related to my expertise fields.
