My cover letter

Luis A. de los Frailes Álvaro


Thank you for visiting my translation blog.

As a freelance translator, I am specialized in scientific and technical documents and the following language combinations:

> Spanish (please, find samples below
Korean > Spanish (for samples, please visit my
Korean blog
Chinese (simplified, traditional) > Spanish (please, find samples below)


With a degree in Geology and a M.Eng Hydrology, I have also studied direct and inverse translation techniques.

I have studied postgraduate courses in the UK and obtained the following language certificates:
TOEFL (score: 273); TOEIC (score: 930).

As for Korean, I have passed the Level 4 TOPIK test (한국어능력시험 ~ 4 합격).

In 2005 and 2007 I obtained the HSK (汉语水平考试)Mandarin Chinese certificate.

During 7 years, I have accumulated relevant experience in the following areas of translation:

  • Literature (novel, poetry)
  • Videos (documentaries, etc)
  • Movie scripts
  • Web pages
  • Advertising (automobile business)

I always try to prioritize accuracy and consistency between the original and the translated text. Both are fundamental to ensure that the final product... efficient in transmitting the original message
...sounds as natural as possible in the target language

With this commitment always in mind, I try to find best equivalent for each situation and achieve the maximum quality, even with short deadlines.

My main hobbies are reading and writing.

I sincerely appreciate your attention
Please contact me anytime for further discussion on rates and other particulars.

Kind regards,

Luis A. de los Frailes Álvaro
