Spanish to English Literary Translation

When you hire me to translate your novel, memoir, or short story to English, you’ll be getting the benefit not only of my extensive experience (20+ years) as a translator, but also my editorial expertise. There are quite a few Spanish to English translators for hire, but not many of them are also editors and published authors in their own right.
