I have a B.A. in English Language with a minor in Linguistics from the University of Havana, Cuba. I graduated in 1978. For 24 years I worked as an EFL teacher in colleges (with both undergraduates and graduates) language schools and other institutions. I also taught EFL at a Theological Seminary. I did some individual tutoring too. While working in college I go the Associate Professor rank. On several occasions, I was asked to do oral interpretation from English into Spanish and vice versa when visitors from English-speaking countries came to the institutions where I was working. I have also translated two books and several short articles. At present I am a legal resident in the USA. I became an Episcopal priest in 2007 after obtaining my B.A. in Theology in 2004. I am now working part time at St Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in San Diego, CA, where I minister mainly the Hispanic community. While working here, I am often asked to do short translations for the benefit of the community I minister. I have celebrated bilingually on several occasions.
I feel more confident translating texts related to Religion and Linguistics, but I also feel capable of dealing with texts related to social sciences in general and also texts dealing with general topics.
