Maintenance Senior Officer for 28 year; Selected to be "Exchange Maintenance Officer" at Little Rock AFB (AR) (1988-1990)

Also a Hercules C-130 Navigator Instructor. Recently retired as Lieutenant Colonel.

I spent long time teaching English at the Colombian Air Force. As a result, I was able to develop a Multimedia Course for that purpose "Manual de Ingles a su Alcance" which has helped a lot of people to understand and speak the language.

For any translation job I use the latest techniques in voice recognition and CAT tools, therefore guaranteeing high throughput , very short turn around time and consistent quality.

I have experience in the subtitling of video brochures and so on.

I've translated to Spanish various technical documents, being the "Huey-II Helicopter Operator Manual" my most known work.
