I became a certified legal translator in my home country, Guatemala, in 1980. Since then, I have completed a large number of translation jobs including legal documents, international organization documents, operation manuals, academic transcripts, school communications, advertising materials and others. For about 15 years, while I was living in Guatemala, I worked for UNICEF and several other United Nations agencies. My job there required that I translate large project documents from Spanish into English. After I stopped working as a regular employee, I would still be hired as freelance translator. Presently, I reside in the U.S. For twelve years, I have been working for an attorney and this work has enhanced my experience in legal document translation. Many of my current clients are individuals who require translations -- mainly from Spanish to English -- of a diversity of legal documents. However, I also have experience in legal translation from English into Spanish. In addition, for over eight years I translated from English to Spanish for the Paradise Valley School District in Phoenix, Arizona. My present clients include several important corporations from the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area. For these corporations, I have translated from English into Spanish a variety of materials including contracts, agreements, notices of privacy practices and patient forms for lab and imaging procedures as well as advertising brochures and fliers.
