I’m Ailish

I offer a bespoke translation service into English from Spanish, French and Catalan, giving academics, writers and creatives a voice in English.

I work with universities and small translation agencies, as well as academics seeking to publish in English and business owners keen on communicating their brand in English.

In recent years my interests have led me to explore different fields of writing and I am currently expanding my services into the translation of nutrition and health, wellness and yoga literature.


Academic translation & proofreading

While many of my academic clients have an excellent command of English, the writing standard required by international academic journals is demanding and calls for professional translation or proofreading. I can help you by translating or proofreading your book chapters, research proposals, articles, conference papers and presentations and ensuring they meet the journal standards.

Translation & proofreading in other fields

Do you want to make your services available to an English-speaking audience, or to reach out through your website, blog, newsletter or Instagram posts?

How do I get the ball rolling?

First things first, I’ll need to see the document you need translated. Send me your document and I’ll assess it and provide you with a quote.

How long will it take?

This depends on many factors (word count, specific terminology, research required, etc.) but to give you an idea, I translate approximately 2,500 words per day.

I’ve written an article for publication in English but I’m not a native English speaker. Can you help me?

Of course! Send me your document and I’ll let you know how I think I can help.

I have audio-visual material that I need translated. Can you help?

Yes, I can translate your film or documentary script or create the subtitles and translate them for your target audience.
