We have always found Sandra to be extremely professional in every capacity. Sandra has also proved herself to work as the senior translator in a team which has proved invaluable in some of the larger projects she has worked on. The ability to advise and not patronise other linguists is a specific skill set which in addition to her technical knowledge certainly serves her well.
Senior Project Manager Prime Production Ltd
Sandra is a very professional and responsive interpreter. I organised a large-scale academic event that required a number of interpreters to both Spanish and Portuguese. Sandra guided me in the process, as I had not worked with interpreters before. She helped me contact a team and made sure I knew all they needed in advance. The event was an absolute success and all attendees commented on the excellent quality of the interpreting work. I would definitely recommend working with Sandra.
Queen Mary University of London
PBI has worked with Sandra for a number of years now and we have always been fully satisfied with her services. She is a very competent interpreter, highly professional in her approach to the work, and at the same time friendly, good-humoured and accommodating. I would recommend her without a second thought.
Peace Brigades International
We love working with Sandra! We’re a long-form journalism project with a very specific narrative style and approach. Sandra manages to interpret and materialize the texture of our writing brilliantly. She’s always eager to understand the intentionality and feeling of our texts in order to deliver what we’re looking for. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

EXAMPLES OF MY WORK
I work in a multitude of settings, including conferences, advocacy meetings, workshops. I translate reports, internal policy documents and multimedia features. I translate and edit academic articles. Please see my portfolio for a selection

Concept analysis, lexical and semantic variation
As a researcher I work with corpus linguistics and ontological methods to analyse language use and variation. Corpus linguistics techniques can also be used in terminology creation and management, a key ingredient for identifying and
maintaining consistent house styles.
