Maria FT Feature Writer

Maria FT is a professional freelance translator specialising in tourism, market research, marketing, toys and children products. After gaining a BA in Translation and Interpreting and a BA in Modern Languages, she moved to the UK to complete a MA in Translation Studies at the University of Warwick. She started freelancing in her mid-twenties.

Now in her (very) late thirties, she lives in Cambridgeshire with her English husband and you can find her writing as Feisty Tapas (meaning “determined Spaniard”), the blog of her alter ego, where she writes about her journey through motherhood as a work at home mum trying (often failing) to keep on top of things, while bringing up a kid biculturally and bilingually. She also muses about food, cross-stitch, her fear of driving following an accident and pretty much whatever takes her fancy when inspiration hits her as she pushes a stroller through life.
