Educational Background: BA in English & Technical English and MA in Spanish.

Quality assurance procedure: 1. I read source text one to two times carefully marking areas, if any, that need further research. 2. I prepare the first draft translation. 3. Read whole document with the source text going word/line by line adding corrections and clarify question areas in the second draft. 4. Reread whole document one time. 5. If time permits I put it away for a bit and then do the final read through.

Areas of expertise: Technical/Medicine/Engineering/Nautical/Teaching.
