Hi, I am Marita, nice to meet you!
I am a Freelance Scientific Writer & Translator (EN>ES, FR>ES) with a large background in Patents.
I was born in Extremadura, Spain, but my professional career has been developed in Madrid, where I live. I studied languages and hold a master in Chemistry. My professional career started teaching English. Later on, I taught different subjects such as Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Engineering Chemistry, at the degree level. In 2002, combining the best of my knowledge of both worlds, science, and languages, I became a freelance technical translator above all of the patents. Being chemistry the basis of many fields of knowledge, my work has been related to the health sciences field, such as biology, medicine, biochemistry, pharmacology, or chemistry.

I have mainly worked for leading companies such as L’Oréal, Avon Products, Bayer, Glaxo, IBM, Honeywell, among others and leading industrial and intellectual property offices in Madrid such as Elzaburu, S. L. or technology companies such as Ventiv Technology. London. UK.
Besides of a translator, I also have a background in proofreading, localizing, and writing.
