I have been working as a Freelance Translator for the last nineteen years and partially translating for the last thirty years. Although my native language is Spanish, I can also translate from Spanish into English in areas of my primary expertise: business letters and office reports, economic and business academic texts, legal documents, manuals, medical texts, agronomy, accounting, civil engineering, mining, construction, finance, psychology and social sciences texts. For the last thirteen years I have also been working for an agency as Linguistic Validation Consultant with Cognitive Debriefing Experience and as a Freelance Translator editing, proofreading and harmonizing translations.

I lived in the US for six years, working as an administrative assistant, and a legal secretary as well as studying bi-lingual secretarial curriculum at Miami Dade Community College.
