For 27 years, I have worked at being the "voice and ears" of thousands of, primarily, English speaking people who have settled in and around Javea.
I offer very personal consulting, interpreting and translating service, which is designed to help you with your everyday issues in Spain and to improve your life when it comes to what can be rather daunting Spanish paperwork.
So when it comes to important issues, documents and appointments, it is important to have a Spanish speaker to "hold your hand" along the way.
Even if you speak a little Spanish, the situation gets more complex when dealing, for instance, with public institutions. Knowing how to move within the system (as well as being aware of when you can persist, let go or fight back) is, on many occasions the key to success.
But that is only possible through real professional experience and knowledge of both the culture and the language.
And this is exactly what I do. It's my job and I love it!
