About me
I am an architect, with a keen interest in language since childhood. My family moved to the US when I was 11 years old, and it was then that I discovered how difficult it was sometimes to convey thoughts in a different language.

I am a person who loves to communicate, and I find that being able to communicate in other languages is essential in today's global market. Being a very meticulous person, I always try to find the best solution for whatever task I undertake, whether it is translating, or working as an architect.

Beginning in 2001, and for three years after that, I worked for the website http//, which is based at the School of Architecture of the U. Politécnica in Madrid, and is sponsored by the Ministry of Development of Spain.

This website has been set up for posting the outcomes of an international contest on Sustainable Development Practices, in Spanish version. The originals are always presented in English, and often not written by native English speakers, so translating these documents can sometimes be an arduous task.

After that period, I concentrated on my professional career as an architect, but continued to work as a part-time translator. Sometimes this task was included in the duties of my position as an architect, and other times I would translate documents for friends or family members (my husband, for example, is a landscape ecology expert, and I have translated several documents for him).
