My college background is Economics but I found out that it's part of my profile to have the necessity to contact and work with people from other cultures. That need and the prospects of a world market lead me to become a Freelance Translator and be in touch with several work fields.
My motivation when applying for a job is to work with an efficient team and diversify my experience in translation, while compromising to offer quality translations, comply with deadlines and have good planning and organization of my work.
