I am Jorge Martínez, an English-to-Spanish translator, content editor and languages teacher based in Spain.
Let´s see what I can do for you.
Would you like me to be part of your next project? This is what I can do for you:
With more than 15,000 hours work experience as a web programmer, I can confidently help you to translate your website into Spanish.
I have created from scratch e-learning and e-commerce platforms, online magazines and web portals for some major Spanish companies. In addition to this, I have received qualified education in Digital Marketing, SEO, SEM and Web Analytics.
In my last projects, I have actively collaborated with the Google Localization Team in the translation of technical help and articles for AdWords, Google Maps, AdSense and Waze, among others.
Make sure your App (iOS, Android, Windows Mobile) or computer program is ready for the Spanish market. I worked as an in-house developer for 7 years and I am a certified Software Tester.
I can adapt your software to the requirements of the Spanish market, including the actual translation, adaptation of the user interface, online help, user manual, as well as performing linguistic and functional testing all the process long. I am well-versed in the terminology of the major operating systems and worked with applications of all kinds.
Video game Localization
I have comprehensive know-how in localizing games of all genres for the Spanish market and for all major gaming platforms, such as current console systems, Android, iOS & PC.
Do you need help to translate that awesome indie game to Spanish? I can localize dialogs, user interface, help and tutorial texts while defining the voice, tone, direction and style that will characterize your ideal translation.
I have been playing video games for 30 years. Since the Commodore 64 times I have owned over a hundred different console systems and played, literally, thousands of games. Being an avid collector and a serious gamer has given me a solid foundation of the video game industry and the ability to understand and localize virtually any type of game.
Why not give your text that one last look before sending it off? I can help you to improve the formatting, style, clarity and accuracy of your texts in Spanish.
I provide grammar editing, which includes the correction of punctuation, verb tense, spelling, and sentence structure, certifying a well-written document in Spanish which meets the guidelines set by the RAE (Royal Spanish Academy). Make sure your message will come across the way that you want it to.
Is the content accurate? Have you made clear transitions between paragraphs? Is it clear what each pronoun refers to? Have you used an appropriate tone?… As a Spanish native speaker trained in languages and translation I can provide the best strategies for revising your writing.
Content writing / Transcreation / Copywriting
Do you need fresh contents for your business in a way that appeals to your Spanish audience? Convince the readers that choosing your brand, not your competitor’s, is the smart move.
I specialize in copywriting and transcreation (or creative translation). Since 2000, I have produced a range of different types of written content for the internet.
Although I am passionate about technology, I have years of experience in and out of the tech arena. My services include marketing and advertising, brand adaptation & research, slogan localization, product descriptions, blog posts, etc.
