Games and Software

I can localise your games, software and mobile applications into European or international Spanish, adapting your UI, dialogue, voiceovers and system text to the Spanish-speaking market while preserving their voice and essence.

My clients include some of the top names in the industry, such as Nintendo and Square Enix. Check out some of the titles I have worked in my gallery!

Information Technologies

Computing is one of my passions. I have a solid IT background and in-depth knowledge of both user- and enterprise-grade IT solutions. I can faithfully translate your press releases, sales presentations, newsletters, mailings and white papers, as well as highly technical materials like spec sheets, operation manuals and internal documentation.

Localisation Project Management

Need your product translated into several languages, but you’re not sure where to start? I can manage your multilingual localisation projects for you. Working with a network of carefully vetted linguists, I will ensure your translations do your product justice and make it a hit in every market.

I will handle every aspect of the localisation process: from file preparation to managing queries, QA and uploading content to your CMS / repository, while actively working with you to identify potential issues ahead of time and streamline your localisation pipeline. No project is too complex — drop me a line to find out what I can do for you!


Having trouble with SDL Trados Studio or memoQ? Need a primer on software localisation and internationalisation? Are you a university, college or CPD provider seeking someone with experience in the trenches to speak at your conferences and workshops, or teach your students about localisation?

I’ve taught the Masters-level course “Introduction to Software Localisation” at the FHWS technical college in Würzburg (Germany) for four consecutive years, and provided one-on-one and group training on CAT tools to tens of freelance translators. Whatever your training needs, I can probably help. Give me a shout and let me know what you need!
