About me
I currently work as a freelance translator, copy editor and transcreator delivering on-demand linguistic services from English into Spanish to help international companies go global, minimize cultural barriers, implement effective communication strategies, and reach new markets.

I have specialized in localization and completed translation, editing, proofreading, transcreation and QA tasks for different leading brands. In general, the type of work included documentation with technical and marketing content, spec sheets, mailers, promotions, configuration guides, virtual events, executive summaries, banners, brochures, terms of use, press releases, and newsletters.

I have more than 5 years of experience in transcreation for both ATL and BTL advertising materials for various media. Some of the brands I have worked for in campaigns as a transcreator/copy editor are American Express, Puma, United Airlines, British Airways, Glade, IKEA, Microsoft and Huggies, among others.

When I'm not at my desk, you'll find me reading, practicing yoga, and learning about new technologies and marketing trends.
