I am a Mexican translator and interpreter.
I lived in the US when I was little, so I learned the language naturally and after we moved back to Mexico I kept using it as much as Spanish. Almost all media and literature I consume is in English, except when the source language is Spanish or Japanese, which I also speak.
I have a bachelor's degree in Engineering, with a major in Neuroscience (I started off as a Physics major). Even though I didn't follow a career in this area, this background has always helped me. Certain skills improved, such as being analytical and logical, and of course, I also acquired practical, fascinating knowledge.
I started studying Japanese at my former university 9 years ago. I continued until completing all courses, earning a JLPT N2 certification, and doing a short cultural exchange program in Japan.
I am passionate about Japanese art, folklore, history and religion. I greatly enjoy reading and translating Japanese. In Mexico, the demand for technical translations is high, however, I'd love to do literary translation as well.
My hobbies are reading, writing and painting.
My artistic and technical background help me in every translation project I undertake, as I'm familiar to many topics and terminology.
I look forward to continue applying my language skills, and to keep improving.
