Translation isn’t just about
being good at languages

Itziar Santín

Specialist knowledge and linguistic expertise

For a top-quality translation, you need a translator with an excellent knowledge of the source and target languages and the subject matter.

I’m Itziar Santín, professional translator, member of EIZIE and ACE Traductores. My passion for languages led me to study translation and interpreting at the University of the Basque Country. As part of my degree, I also studied at the University of Leipzig, Germany, on the Erasmus programme. Besides perfecting my language skills at university, I discovered that translation isn’t just about being good at languages.

Linguistic expertise and specialist knowledge are key components of any good translation.

I’m currently based in Bilbao, where I provide specialized professional translations about topics that fascinate me: medicine, the environment and literature.

I always endeavour to provide the best service possible – and to do that I undertake ongoing training. What’s more, I’m a member of the EIZIE, a professional association for linguists in the Basque Country, and of ACE Traductores, a professional association of literary translators.
