Translating, Interpreting and Authoring Services

Translations

As you will see below I can translate a whole range of written texts for you, and I can generally maintain the same format as the original. So if you need a Word, PowerPoint or PDF document translated, I can return the finished document to you in whichever format suits you best, without changing the original style or the visual impact that you designed.  But of course photocopies, images, handwritten text, personal or company documents, web pages, letters - almost anything containing text can be translated from one language to another.

Interpreting

Trying to get your message across in important, unusual or unfamiliar circumstances can be stressful. Having an interpreter allows you to keep control of the situation because you can be sure that there is no obstacle to clear communications between all parties.

Most official local and national organisations and authorities in Spain require you to be accompanied by an interpreter if you don't speak Spanish. And of course, apart from making yourself understood it is important that you understand clearly what is being said to you.

Authoring

When something important needs to be put into writing, so many factors can influence the effectiveness of the text: the tone of the prose; for whom we are writing; how we want to inform, affect or influence the reader and how quickly we need to do that. Every piece of writing must communicate effectively, whether it be fact or fiction, a love letter or a tourist guide, a Company brochure or an autobiography. Generally, inexperienced writers discover that it’s not as easy as it looks within five minutes of sitting down at the keyboard – which is where ghost-writers, copywriters and translators like me can come in handy. Productive communication is all about successfully getting your message across to the reader. I look forward to working with you on your writing project.
