THE STORY BEHIND A LOVE FOR LANGUAGES
MintWords’ founder is… me. My name is Rocio Perez, and I am a professional translator with solid experience who loves languages, cultures, and the connexion between both.
My story starts with a degree in English Teaching in Spain, but after studying and living in Sweden, England and then going back to Spain, I fell in love with Linguistics and the translation world along the way, and I realized that being a teacher did not make me as happy as I had thought.
A PASSION TURNED INTO A PROFESSION
I followed my heart and chose to develop my translation skills even further with a European Master in Translation Technologies in Belgium. After that I moved to Barcelona for a position as an in-house translator for one of the biggest global translation companies out there, where I learned what high quality translations and a fast-paced environment really meant. Living in four different European countries, in addition to being a passionate traveller, has given me a unique understanding of different cultures’ writing styles, expressions and motivations, allowing me to tailor messages and create deeper connections with Spanish-speaking readers.
MINTWORDS: MAKING COMMUNICATION POSSIBLE
In 2016 I decided to move to Paris and become a freelance translator. I am still working for the same global translation company as a freelance translator, and so far I am also providing my linguistic services to many other agencies in Spain, France and the UK, as well as direct clients from every corner of the world. That is how MintWords was born, and it has kept on growing and expanding ever since. Thanks to a wonderful network of professional linguists, MintWords is able to provide translation services not only into Spanish, but also English, French and Dutch, and many other language combinations in the near future!
