About Me

I have 25 years of experience as a translator and localizer from English and French into Spanish. Throughout my professional career I have had the opportunity to collaborate in the most varied projects, and I have used a lot of computer applications and computer aided translation tools.
I have undertaken tasks ranging from complete management and translation of localization projects, through style guides creation, to final DTP of documents. All this has helped me to develop my skills and to be very flexible and capable of adapting to different environments, equipments and tasks.
I am appreciated for a maximum involvement in each project, commitment with text quality, attention to detail and compliance with delivery deadlines.
My interest in foreign languages is vocational, thus the time I dedicate to work is grateful to me and I am always ready to give my best I, to continue improving and to reach the highest levels of professionalism.

Yolanda Vázquez Tévar

  • At the personal level, I feel privileged. My life has gradually been taking shape to combine trips and stays abroad with language learning; my passion for the ocean and navigation have brought me to the best place to live in the world, Tarifa (Spain); and my vocation of communicating with other people in different languages has made of me a professional translator.
    In my free time I collaborate with different agencies and NGOs. As a volunteer of the Red Cross, I have carried out duties of search and rescue at sea and humanitarian assistance on land for immigrants arriving to the Andalusian coast in small boats; again in these activities, my knowledge of languages is essential for enabling communication. I also perform activities with children at risk of abandonment and social exclusion.
