MA, DipTransIOLET, PgDL

Sarah is an award-winning freelance translator and qualified solicitor. She’s one of those rare translators who pass the DipTrans exam on their first attempt. That, combined with a first-class languages degree from Cambridge and a fresh perspective on the translation sector, means she has heaps of knowledge to help you develop your translation skills and career. Having spent a decade working as a solicitor, law is her main specialism. But don’t think she’s all about contracts and court cases. She also translates for one of football’s governing bodies and will be pleased to chat about the beautiful game with you. Connect with Sarah on LinkedIn.

Nikki Graham

Course tutor

MA (Cantab), MITI

A full-time freelancer since 1999, Nikki holds a degree in French and German from Cambridge University. This qualification set her on a course that would culminate in her living in Spain and finding a passion for Spanish-to-English translation. Essentially a generalist now focusing on leisure and tourism texts, Nikki’s love for editing has led her to work extensively with academic texts (social sciences and humanities). Her years of experience as first a language teacher and then a translator mean she’s fully equipped to tutor up-and-coming professionals. The extensive content on her award-winning blog also acts as testimony to her deep understanding of the art and the industry.

Miguel Martín

Webmaster and project manager

Miguel is our techy and the one behind much of what you see here. You’ll find him to be both knowledgeable and friendly. That’s why he’s also our project manager and the one running our inbox. Miguel will likely be your first point of contact with The Translator’s Studio. He loves languages and speaks great English. But feel free to write to him in Spanish if you want to practise. When he manages to escape from behind the computer, you’ll find him on the mountain.
