I was born in Argentina, lived in Colombia until I was 8, then returned home and studied at the University of Buenos Aires. After graduating as a sworn translator, I moved to the UK, immersing myself in the language and culture. I am now a professional Spanish translator in London, where I help clients to connect with my Latin American roots.
With London agency experience, a translation degree and an MSc in specialised translation and over a decade as a successful independent translator, I help businesses and individuals like you to make your mark in Latin America in elegant, natural-sounding Spanish. My specialist services will ensure that you achieve your goals.
The best linguists never stop developing their skills. Learning is a constant process, and my commitment to professional values involves dedicating time to professional development. Language and sector-specific conferences and workshops hone my skills and improve my work.
What this means for you:
Your ideas, documents and scripts will resonate effortlessly with Latin American speakers
Your message will be expressed in Spanish the way it was intended in English
Spanish terms and phrases are meticulously chosen to ensure accuracy and clarity
I work alongside you until the job at hand is complete and you are happy. But don’t just take my word for it.

Pilar Gañez has given me her invaluable assistance for several years tackling with me side by side the translation of the proceedings of FAO/UN conferences both in London and overseas, always displaying a high level of dedication, professionalism and impeccable work in the discharge of her duties, and I recommend her work at any time and to any organisation.

We are all hoping to continue our successful cooperation for many years to come.
Project Manager Translation Management Ltd
As a translation project manager at WorldOne Research, I have had the great pleasure of working with Pilar on many medical market research surveys over the past four years. Since day one, Pilar stood out as an invaluable addition to our database of freelance language providers, delivering high-standard Spanish versions of our specialized medical questionnaires against tight to very tight deadlines in a seemingly effortless manner. Pilar’s solid and constantly growing knowledge of the subject-matter, impeccable sense of urgency and very likeable personality complement her excellent linguistic skills and make her a highly competent and trustworthy medical translator.

I have been working with Pilar since 2015 during which time she has worked on several large translation projects for me. She is a highly professional translator and always delivers excellent translations on time. I would have no hesitation in using her translation services again and recommending her to others.
Director, Verbatim Services Ltd
Over the years, Pilar Gañez has translated and proofread a wide range of Tearfund’s materials, including capacity building resources, organisational policies and advocacy reports covering a variety of themes. Her work is of consistent high quality, rigour and accuracy; she has an excellent grasp of the nuance of the English language and an ability to interrogate and translate complex concepts. She always completes work to a high standard and on time. I would highly recommend her as both a translator and proofreader.
Translations Editor, Tearfund
We in the former Language Services team at Shell were delighted to welcome Pilar onto our panel of freelance translators. She produced highly polished texts that were both accurate translations and eminently readable versions in their own right. Although other commitments meant that she had to cease working with us after a while, I have not forgotten her excellent service after all these years.

We need to send important correspondence to clients in Argentina on a regular basis and Pilar has made this so much easier by providing us with a fast and trustworthy translation service. I would highly recommend her services.
Pilar came to us highly recommended by a colleague. She fit in perfectly with our workflows and proved to be an excellent linguist with the highest standards. She is extremely professional and never misses a deadline. We are glad she is part of our team!
