Welcome! ¡Bienvenido! Bienvenue!
I'm Sarah, I've been a full time freelance interpreter for over a decade.
I was born and raised in a bilingual household in Madrid and later Cádiz, Spain.
In 2011, I graduated from University of Toulouse - Jean Jaurès with a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and a university degree in French as a Foreign Language.
I became certified by the New York City Unified Court system in Spanish and French in 2016 and since then I've dedicated part of my freelance work to interpreting in the New York State courts.
In 2018 I completed my Masters of Conference Interpreting, from Glendon College, York University in Toronto, an AIIC recognized Interpretation Masters program.
I have interpreted for international conferences on the private and public sector related to business, education, literature, technology... and for international organizations covering climate justice, human rights and indigenous issues.
Currently I provide services in the New York City Metropolitan area in person and remotely through Interpreting platforms such as Zoom, Kudo and Microsoft Teams. I cover these assignments from my fully equipped interpreting studio, including hard-wired fiber optic internet and noise cancelling headphones.
I am a member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and the New York Circle of Translators (NYCT).
I'm a dual citizen of Spain and the US. I reside in Union City, New Jersey with my husband and two children. When I'm not interpreting I enjoy spending time in nature, making crafts as well as biking.
Sarah is an excellent professional interpreter with a perfect command of both English and Spanish. I've witnessed first-hand (or, rather, “first-ear”) her seamless interpretation of high-level scientific topics in remote settings. I would be happy to share an interpretation booth again and recommend her for future events.
