As a Philosophy student I focused in the field of Linguistics, which during college I combined with my passion for learning foreign languages: French and Russian, as well as perfecting my English.
After college I started learning Arabic language, also combined with my job as an editorial coordinator for institutionalized magazines belonging to professionals' associations of engineers and industrial chambers.
I am a Spanish professional translator born and raised in Mallorca (Spain). I would love to help you translate your projects from English, French or Italian into Spanish or Catalan.
I am accurate, reliable and detail-oriented. You'll find over 30 references about me on my Proz profile here: www.balibrea.com/feedback
I hold university degrees in Clinical Psychology & Audiovisual Communication, plus a Diploma in Translation from the British Chartered Institute of Linguists.
I've been rostered by the United Nations as a copy-preparer and I've passed the latest EPSO competition for Spanish translators (EN & FR > ES).
