About me
Telecommunications engineer. Weapon systems engineer. English language professor. Navy Officer for 33 years, now retired after being the Weapon and Electronic Dept. chief. As such, I have been trained in UK and European electronic companies for 4 years and have 20 year experience with specialized weapon and electronic technical documentation (radar, UHF, VHF, GPS systems, etc.).
I have been in charge of many translations in the Navy, and after retirement, in many projects related to tactics, strategy and operations, for international companies.
Also 10 year experience as Chief Editor of a consumer electronics related magazine, in charge of translation and edition of technical articles.

In 2012 I founded Kontextia (, a translation services agency based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
