SPANISH TO ENGLISH TRANSLATION SERVICES

word4word is a run by Jenni Radford. I am a professional translator working from Spanish into English, providing translation solutions for the legal and business sectors, and for private individuals.

EXPERIENCE and SPECIALISMS

 

With over 12 years' experience using Spanish in the business, legal and travel sectors, my translation work incorporates in-house translation while working for an Anglo-Spanish law firm and a Spanish global infrastructure company, in addition to my freelance translation and interpreting career. 

My specialisms reflect my professional background and experience which are based on a  bilingual career in Spain and the UK across a range of professional environments, specifically the Anglo-Spanish and English legal sectors, and the commercial and  corporate sectors, having worked for both Spanish and international firms in different business areas.  Prior to this, I spent over 9 years working in the travel industry in the UK, USA and Spain in sales, customer services and operations, and specialising in independent, fine arts and cultural  travel.

 

I hold a Masters in Translation Studies and in 2018 I obtained a Diploma in Spanish Law from the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía.
