About me
Hi,

I'm a native Spanish speaker from Perú who has studied English since kindergarten and continue to refine my language skills. After graduating with an MD from Universidad San Martin de Porres in Lima, Perú, I worked for the Peruvian Navy as a physician before moving to the United States.

I moved to San Diego, CA, where I earned a Certificate of Translation and Interpretation (English/Spanish) from UCSD (University of California in San Diego) Extension. Subsequently, I worked at UCSD Extension as an Instructor, teaching Medical Translation and Interpretation classes for the Certificate Program.

Being a doctor and a native Spanish speaker give me a strong advantage when translating. Having these backgrounds allows me to produce not only an accurate translation, but also to do so in a culturally competent manner.

My work as a freelance translator has given me experience in a variety of settings: from medical reports, articles, and texts to documents, certificates, contracts, and websites.

I live currently in San Diego, CA, where I work as a freelance interpreter and take translations assignments from all over the world. I am a member in good standing of the Peruvian Medical Association, American Translators Association (ATA), and International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA).

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need additional information.

Best regards,

Gloria
