Ana Ricca 

Languages and commercial experience combined

in over 20 years working with businesses.


I was born in the beautiful city of Seville in Southern Spain where I graduated with a BA in English. In 1992, I came to the UK where my language skills provided me with an opportunity to work for global companies based in Devon and Cornwall whilst qualifying as an accountant. For almost twenty years, I have held a variety of roles with overall responsibility for the Finance, Administration and Export functions in companies in the IT, electronic and glass industries. I have also been a finance lecturer for a leading UK firm, providers of CPD for the accountancy profession. I spent my last six years in industry working as the Financial Controller for the Plymouth Plant of the NYSE listed medical technology company BD. I have been running 1992 Translation Services since 2012 and I am based in Plymouth. More detail can be found in my LinkedIn profile.

1992 Translation Services is the result of my passion for languages and business communication across cultures. My language skills have always been key to establishing relationships with customers, suppliers and colleagues across the world. They have been essential to producing effective reports, presentations and training material. The combination of my commitment to continuous improvement, my languages and commercial experience are central to the way I approach every translation project. I have a genuine interest for, and understanding of, my clients’ products and services, their goals, their corporate culture and the market they operate in. I believe this ensures that my translations are an accurate reflection of the message they want to convey.


I have a BA in English, an MA (Distinction) in Translation Studies and I am a Chartered Certified Accountant. I am also a member of the following professional associations and I abide by their Professional Codes of Conduct: 

I am a member of the Managing Committee of the South West division of the Institute for Translation & Interpreting. I also write and deliver courses on the use of Excel as a productivity tool for translators in partnership with eCPD Webinars.
