icon-history-realvista2History is one of my great passions in life. I graduated in the subject from Bristol University, I’ve carried on reading widely about it ever since and I have an extensive knowledge of many periods. It’s not surprising, then, that I love historical translations, and, like most translators, I do my best work on texts that interest me.

My work in this area has included the website of the Món Sant Benet medieval monastery complex, work on scripts and synopses of historical television series and, most recently, material on Jewish history in Barcelona.

He has shown overall vision, ability to react and real cultural, academic and heritage thoroughness as part of an action involving multiple partners.

His ability to react, autonomy and flexible working have resulted in a quality translation job.

As well as these competences, Mr. Berrill has the essential technical and academic virtues and qualities to support the planning and implementation of a series of international signs taking account of the concerns and requirements of a UNESCO site.

All his experience, together with his education, make Simon Berrill a creative translator, whose technical ability and knowledge have been real assets for my work and for the success of this project."
