Alyssa in a few words

Soy corresponsal internacional en España desde hace casi una década. He colaborado con el BBC, RTE (Radio Irlanda), la Agencia Anadolu (el EFE de Turquía) y Atlas Obscura entre muchos otros medios.

Mi talento es escribir en inglés y mi pasión es aprender. Esta combinación sirve también para ayudar a clientes en España comunicar con el mundo angloparlante.
Tengo mucha experiencia en traducciones al inglés y creando contenido original para organizaciones.

Traduzco para La Fundación Princesa de Asturias y empresas multinacionales de tecnología. He escrito contenido original para clientes como IE University, el gobierno de Valencia y el gobierno de Extremadura.

Soy licenciada en periodismo e historia de Carleton University, Canadá. Tengo un master en traducción de la Universidad Menéndez Pelayo. Solo me queda el TFM para tener otro master de Historia y Análisis Sociocultural de la Universidad de Oviedo.

Precios medios- 0.15€/palabra traducciones español al inglés, €0.35/palabra copywriting (artículos, anuncios, notas de prensa, páginas web).
Ofrezco rebajas para traducir textos académicos en humanidades y ciencias sociales, textos literarios y a las ONGs.
