English and French into Spanish translator

I’m Pili Rodríguez Deus, a Spanish translator based in Southampton (UK) trading as Pilirodriguezdeus.com. I also speak Galician (my second mother tongue) and have studied two years of Italian at night school. Oh, if you mistook my site for a gardening centre, it’s because I love flower photography as much as food photography! All from my own garden. Keeps you sane… or is it insane?!
