ALEXANDER PAREDES

Lover of foreign languages and avid learner, I am a modern languages graduate and a translator by profession. Spanish is my mother tongue and I am currently living in the Basque Country, Spain. I completed undergraduate and postgraduate studies in French, German, Japanese and English, and I now specialise primarily in the translation, interpreting and teaching of these languages.

I have been a university lecturer, I studied in Japan twice and I have worked as a translator, interpreter and cultural adviser at a Japanese diplomatic office, all of which have given me a deeper knowledge of this language and culture.

I am passionate about translation and new technologies, always keeping abreast of the latest developments in these fields. Several of my translations, on various subjects including literature, have been published, while I always use the latest translation and localisation tools. Marketing, literature, computer science, engineering, politics, religion, cinema and tourism are some of the specialist areas I work with.
