Welcome

                                             My name is Patricia Blanco Domínguez and I'm a professional translator of English, German                                                                  and French into Spanish (Variant: Spain-Standard). I have a BA in Translation and                                                                                      Interpretation (University of Granada, Spain) and a Master's Degree in
                                             Specialized Translation (Legal and Economic Translation, French > Spanish).

 

                                             Besides I am a Sworn/Certified Translator and Interpreter of German and Spanish by the Higher                                                        Regional Court of Dresden, Germany.
 

                                              I am also a member of the German Federal Association of Translators and Interpreters (BDÜ), of                                                       the ProZ.com Certified Pro Network (with certification on the language pairs English to                                                                             Spanish and German to Spanish), as well as the non-profit association of Translators without Borders.

 

                                              Even though I translate a wide diversity of texts, I'm specialized in certificates, medical and legal texts,                                                 and website localization.
