Professional practices Susana Sherman endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Born in Havana, Cuba, I emigrated as a child to the United States, becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1972. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a minor in Mathematics from Rutgers University, Newark College of Arts and Sciences, granted in May 1978. Shortly after graduation, I lived for two years in Venezuela, where I first tried my hand at translation from English into Spanish. Returning to the United States in 1981, I embarked upon a career in telecommunications, which culminated in early retirement from Lucent Technologies in November 2006.

During my tenure as an engineer and software professional, I capitalized on my language skills producing and responding to bids and proposals; giving product demonstrations to clients within the U.S. and internationally, in both English and Spanish; and developing and providing customer product training in both languages.

I enjoy experiencing world cultures, and have traveled throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe and Asia. My family tree includes French, Spanish, English and Irish branches. I find those countries especially interesting.

A passion for language and a love of reading and writing in both Spanish and English led me to pursue a second career as a professional translator and obtain a Certificate of Proficiency in English-Spanish and Spanish-English Translation from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, granted in May 2010. 

Although my native language is Spanish, I consider English to be a second native language. My translations are accurate, professional, timely and well-researched.

I am a member of the American Translators Association, and have public profiles on LinkedIn and ProZ.
