My name is Ester Vidal and I am a translator, proofreader and content writer.
I've always had my nose buried in a book, immersing myself in its pages. My travel companions are very varied: comic books, historical novels, romances or thrillers - the list is endless.
My passion for literature and innate curiosity for other cultures and languages were key factors when choosing my future career.
I studied a degree in Forlì (Italy) and lived in the wonderful Salzburg (Austria) for 4 years, working in hotels, museums, language schools and tourist information offices.
You can currently find me surrounded by books in Hostalric, a small town between Barcelona and Girona.
I have been working exclusively in translation since 2017. In addition to my degree in Translation and Interpreting (Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona), I am continuously training to broaden my knowledge and offer you the best service.
Here are some of the courses I have taken recently:
I’m a freelance translator, not an agency. I personally do all my translations, proofreading and editing, in my fields of expertise and language combinations, from our first conversation to the final revision.
If you have a text about another subject or in a different language, I collaborate with native translators of other languages, specialized in different fields. Even then, I always supervise and manage every detail of the project to ensure that your instructions and preferences are met.
I am a member of Asetrad (Spanish Association of Translators, Proofreaders and Interpreters), complying with this entity’s ethical codeat all times.
In other words, I work with dignity. I am not afraid to turn down projects if I can’t guarantee quality, and I have thorough knowledge of my working languages and cultures, as well as the terminology used in my fields.
It goes without saying that respecting confidentiality and meeting agreed deadlines is my top priority.
In addition, I build close relationships with clients, offering honest and personalized services, adapting my work to their real needs.
My services therefore become a tailor-made, carefree trip, led by an expert guide who is on hand to resolve any potential setbacks.
