I am an Airline Captain with experience on the Boeing 737, 767, and Airbus A320.  A brief stint in the military (Chilean Air Force) and three years of Architecture and Construction studies give me a solid base on subjects such as defense, construction, engineering and architecture.  I paid my studies and flight training teaching English, and translating manuals and technical texts on many subjects.  I have translated full maintenance manuals for forklifts, mining machinery, construction equipment, etc., and user manuals for pilots and mechanics.  I have also translated news reports and studies pertaining Human Factors in aviation.

Soy capitán de transporte de aerolínea con experiencia de vuelo en Boeing 737 y 767 y Airbus A320.  Un breve paso por la Fuerza Aérea de Chile y tres años de estudio de Arquitectura en la Universidad Central (Chile) me dan una base muy sólida en temas relacionados con defensa, construcción, ingeniería y arquitectura.  Me pagué mis estudios y horas de vuelo realizando clases de inglés y traducciones de manuales y textos técnicos en muchos temas.  He traducido manuales de mantenimiento y reparación de grúas montacargas Clark, maquinaria para la minería, equipamiento de construcción (John Deere), etc., y manuales de usario para pilotos y mecánicos.  También he traducido reportajes y estudios sobre factores humanos en aviación.
