EN>ES: I was one of the pioneers of the PayPal Mexico City Business Unit when it opened its doors in the summer of 2010. As a full time Language Specialist for Mexico, the US and Latin America, I was in charge, among other, of localization and review tasks of content in the fields of marketing, QA assurance, and bug management for Websites, apps, marketing campaigns and social media content, as well as translation of customer emails and content for the help center. I have also localized Websites in the tourism field for New Zealand resorts such as Queenstown, Christchurch and Rotorua, and content in general for international hotel chains. In the advertising field I have done copywriting/transcreation jobs for a large manufacturer of breakfast cereals, for insurance companies, banks and engineering, mining and car manufacturers.

DE>ES: In the advertising field I have completed jobs for two major German car manufacturers.
