I first started learning Spanish at school and always wanted to learn it well enough to travel around Spain and Latin America. In 2006 I spent six months living and working in Madrid during my year abroad and wrote my final year dissertation on the methodology of translating plays by Spanish playwright Federico García Lorca for the stage.
I gained considerable knowledge of the Latin American legal and business markets during my three years working as deputy editor at a legal publishing house here in London. I try my best to keep up my Spanish and am also learning Portuguese.
Here is a selection of my work on Latin America, Spain and Portugal:
