IRENE CORCHADO RESMELLA
Spanish Translator and Content Writer
Born and raised in Extremadura, I studied Translation and Interpreting (English, Russian and French) at the University of Granada. I spent one academic year in Tallinn as an Erasmus student and a semester in Saint Petersburg. Ireland was, for three years, my chosen destination for summer work, and I moved to Dublin as soon as I finished my degree. In 2010, I moved to Latvia and I started working as a freelance translator, combining my activity with an Account Manager role in Riga. Later that year I was appointed an English<>Spanish sworn translator-interpreter by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
I landed in the UK in 2011 and for three years I combined my translation activity with an in-house role in London as a travel content writer (promoted to content editor within a year) for HostelBookers and Hostelworld. It was there where I acquired a sound knowledge about content marketing, blogging, SEO applied to content, email marketing and social media management.
My passion for travelling and my experience working for the travel industry have helped me enormously specialise in the field. I am also an active blogger and the proud owner of Piggy Traveller, a niche inspirational travel blog in English dedicated to my home region of Extremadura, rural tourism, nature and local food. I also blog (in Spanish) about freelancing, life abroad and travel in The Curiolancer.
I’m an advocate of continuous professional development. I plan my CPD on an annual basis in order to meet my learning and career goals. I keep record of all courses and webinars taken, all presentations, talks and conferences attended and all self-study activites carried out. Details of all my CPD are available to clients.
