I graduated in 1979 as English Technical, Scientific and Literary translator from ISPLVJRF “Lenguas Vivas” , renowned for excellence. Since then, I’ve been translating non-stop and enjoying every moment of it.
My first translations as freelancer were technical manuals for communications equipment and I kept specializing in different engineering areas: Electronics, Mechanical, Oil and Gas, Telecommunications and IT. In 1986 I started translating for Medtronic Argentina and added Cardiology and Pacemakers to my specialties.
Interpreting had been an informal activity I was naturally good at until I took an intensive course at Rut Simcovich Interpreters School in the summer of 1997 and became a professional interpreter. Simultaneous interpreting is my favorite. However, my most memorable interpreting jobs were consecutive: interpreting Bobby Fisher and Gary Kasparov at two press conferences in Buenos Aires.
Translating and interpreting are complementary for me, as solutions arrived at while translating usually come in handy when you are in the booth.
As founding member of AATI (Asociación Argentina de Traductores e Intérpretes) I was very proud to be elected Vicepresident in 1999. I held this position for four years.
From 1994 to 2003 I co-managed CAIT, ( where I supervised and coordinated a multilingual team of translators and interpreters. We specialized in Management, Human Resources, Marketing, Mining and Oil and Gas, among others.
As all work and no further education makes Jack a dull translator, in 2003 I completed the Licenciatura in English Language, at the UMSA (Universidad del Museo Social Argentino), which allowed me to hone my research and writing skills and update my knowledge of Applied Linguistics.
From 2003 to 2009 I became an in-house translator for Translab SA ( The company specializes in Custom design and state-of-the-art technology and the job was anything but boring. On the business side, I translated business plans and financial reports. On the technical side I translated materials related to projects including microwave telecommunications, local CAS controllers for casino gambling monitoring, gas meters, gas volume correctors, liposuction equipment, patient monitoring, counterpulsation aortic balloons and neurostimulation devices. What made this job most remarkable was getting to see and touch the devices and components I translated about and the everyday contact with engineers and doctors involved in the projects. I was also a member of the Quality Committee which led to ISO certification in January 2009 and gave me some hands on experience in this area.

I’m now back to freelance work. I feel I’ve come a long way from my first translations in my electric typewriter and paper dictionaries to the wealth of software and internet resources and experience of today. Thanks to Proz, I have regular jobs from translation agencies in England (Global Lexicon) India (Cosmic Global) and Hungary (Business Team Translations) plus RSI interpretation projects with Global Lingo, also from UK.
