About me

My name is Lucía Doval and I am a freelance translator. I am specialised in audiovisual and literary translation, and my working languages are English (EN), Castilian Spanish (ES), and Galician (GL). My language pairs are EN>ES/GL and ES<>GL.

For several years now, I have actively participated in numerous creative projects and worked hand in hand with filmmakers, musicians, theatre producers and content creators. I am always open for new collaborations and I love the sound of “yes,” so I try to say that a lot!

While exploring with this artistic and independent side of me, I work with some of the biggest language service providers, and subtitle for digital platforms and TV channels, such as Prime Video, Netflix, Discovery and Galician TV. I’m Galician Language Lead at Deluxe and I’m the main proofreader of the Galician version of a well-known app, whose name I can’t reveal. You know, NDAs. 😉

I am amazed by knowledge in all its forms. I’m an avid reader of non-fiction books, I play the piano since I was 9, and I write my own songs. If your project deals with profound topics, such as philosophy, music, art, or the intricacies of human behaviour, I will be prepared to get to the core of your message and adapt myself to your needs.

Chat with me for a while so I can tell you much more. I love people and coffee!

On my YouTube channel...

I have been thinking on the huge role that audiovisual translation and media access play on the international films’ reception. Still, these areas don’t usually have any active attention from filmmakers and producers.
