Writer and translator

Writer from birth, professional translator, and incorrigible traveler. I have BA degrees in Translation and Interpreting and in Audiovisual Communication and an MA in History of Contemporary Art and Visual Culture.

Although my love for my home city of Madrid will never wane, I have already had the chance to live in Paris, Palo Alto, Lima and Berlin, and I’m always seeking new horizons. With fifty countries in my backpack, my interest in travel, literature and visual arts has shaped my career and my lifestyle.

Over more than a decade as a professional translator and writer, I have published in a variety of media and formats, collecting a number of literary awards along the way.

I have had the pleasure to work with Patricia in two different companies. Not only is she a fantastic teammate but she also managed to always deliver translation works of great quality. Her extensive career as a writer and freelance Spanish translator, both from English and from French languages, are quite impressive and she always met every single deadline she was given, showing a great degree of flexibility to make sure she completed all her works on time.

Patricia is a highly-skilled writer who can create an engaging text that tells a great story while also conveying a lot of historical and cultural information. We worked together at Questo where Patricia created a city-exploration tour in the historical part of Madrid. She built strong characters you can empathise with, despite the restrictions and length limitations of the project, and was able to bring a historical character to life. Her work is immersive and very well researched. As the editor of her quest, it was a pleasure for me to read her work.

Patricia is an extremely competent & skilled translator and copywriter I have had the pleasure to work with: Her Italian skills are impressive and she specialised with me at Wimdu in the Marketing and Tourism fields. I can recommend her not only as proficient professional in the language sector but also as lovely colleague and dear friend. Hope to work again with you, Patricia!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Patricia. She is an excellent translator and I could fully depend on her to carry out tasks in marketing and advertising. She is also capable of translating technical documentation. She very creative and has added much quality to our city guides and Spanish blog. Patricia is a very hard-working, qualified and motivated professional. The accuracy of her translations and the ability to work under deadline pressure deserve a special mentioning. She is also very much a team player and was able to collaborate successfully with all her colleagues. I can without hesitation recommend Patricia for any translating job or writing job.
