Have you got any
Yes. Lots. I
started working as a translator
when I came to Valencia in the early 90s, although I'm sure the translations
I did then probably
weren't very good - experience and training are essential for good
translations. I now have a great deal more experience along with
the Diploma in Translation awarded by the Institute of Linguists
Where are the
I'm not an English teacher any
more. I'm a translator.
What sort of timetable
I'm self-employed, so my timetable
is whenever I'm sitting in front of the computer. It can include
nights and weekends. That's why I don't charge extra for urgent translations
- I can either do the work or I can't.

If I'm available I'll try and help you.

it will include a deduction for income tax. You'll receive an invoice
once the work has been delivered.
I send you my CV?
It's not worth it. I'm self-employed
and I work alone, so I'm not going to be taking anyone else on. Not
