How do I translate my CV?

I want to apply for jobs abroad but I'm struggling to translate my CV so that it reads really well. I speak Spanish so am looking at Spain, but don't know how to represent my qualifications in a style recognisable to Spanish employers. Can anyone help?!

    Why not get a professional to do it?

    You are right to understand that style and conventions matter and a professional EN>ES translator (preferably Spanish native) who specialises in CVs is the best person to do this.

    You can find such people via the CIOL and ITI, as well as through commercial agencies.

    I'd imagine it would probably cost in the region of £60-80, which is a price I'd be prepared to pay to distinguish myself from the competition!

    If the above is not a viable option, you could translate your CV information yourself but use the Europass CV template to present it.
