Source text - Spanish La posibilidad de que la Reserva Federal anuncie este martes una baja en las tasas de interés ha causado gran expectativa y no sólo en los mercados, sino para los cientos de estadounidenses que están a punto de perder sus casas en medio de la crisis en el sector hipotecario.
El impacto de esta crisis, sin embargo, también se ha sentido en otras partes del mundo. Por ejemplo el viernes el Banco de Inglaterra tuvo que salir al rescate de la entidad hipotecaria Northern Rock. Nuestra corresponsal en Washington, se pregunta, ¿cuál es el posible contagio en América Latina?
Translation - English The possibility that the Federal Reserve Bank could announce the lowering of interest rates next Tuesday has raised a lot of hopes, not only in markets, but also for hundreds of Americans who are about to lose their homes in the midst of the crisis in the mortgage lending sector.
The impact of this crisis, nonetheless, has also been felt in other parts of the world. As an example, on Friday, the Bank of England had to step in and rescue mortgage lender Northern Rock. Our Washington correspondent has asked whether this crisis could spread to affect Latin America.

I am a Canadian native English speaker, but have lived most of my adult life abroad-13 years in Guatemala, two in Mexico; one in France, and two and a half years as a child in Belgium. I now make my home in beautiful Guelph, Ontario.
I hold an Honours B.A. in Spanish from the University of Guelph, as well as the French Baccalaureate and two diplomas from the Sorbonne in Paris, France.
I work as a freelance translator and interpreter, translating into English from French and Spanish, and doing interpretation in both my language pairs (simultaneous interpretation in Spanish only). I am a government-accredited interpreter, having completed the TIPS certification and passed the Spanish/English interpretation test with an average score of 95%.
While living in Guatemala, I worked as an interpreter in the organic coffee, environmental and development sectors, as well as translating for the Organic Crop Improvement Association throughout 1998.
During my undergraduate studies, I became a published author when I co-authored 900 quiz questions for the 15 chapters of a linguistics textbook, An Introduction to Language, 4th Canadian Edition, which are now published on a CD with this linguistics textbook. This extensive training in linguistics, especially semantics, has truly given me a deep understanding of the daily language conundrums I encounter in my work translating and interpreting.
I work with agencies in the United States, France, Canada, and Belgium, as well as clients from around the world, doing mostly legal translation. In 2015, I successfully completed the United Nations Language Competitive Exam and later worked at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City for almost three months in fall 2016.
After six years as a full-time translator and many years as a part-time translator, I have now completed over 1,000,000 words of legal translation in each of my language pairs.
