Work with Kate Major

I have lived and worked in Spain for a total of 17 years, in Valencia, Andalusia and Galicia. I feel fortunate that the pleasure I get from reading, writing and culture has taken me into a career I love. Expressing people’s voices and helping them get heard is my vocation.

This dedication means that a fair portion of my spare time is spent studying my craft. In 2015, I was awarded the Institute of Linguist’s Diploma in Translation, the UK’s “gold standard” for professional translators, and in 2017 I gained a Master’s in Audiovisual Translation. I attend conferences in my profession and fields as often as possible to hone my skills and catch up with colleagues.

As much as my business is my pleasure, I do have a life away from my computer screens. I am also a (mediocre) pianist, (slow) swimmer and (armchair) debater. Oh, and (flustered) mother of two.
