I can speak several languages fluently, which includes English, Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese. I have visited countries where those four languages are widely spoken in order to expand and diversify my vocabulary and that has helped me to reach a native-like level in those languages.
I successfully passed two language assessments for Mandarin to work as a telephonic interpreter for LionBridge.
I love to translate, interpret and learn other languages, but I believe that in order to become an excellent translator or interpreter, you have to become an excellent reader, writer, listener and speaker of the languages you translate and/or interpret to. That is why I enjoy reading and writing in the languages that I use on my job as well as spending time with friends and family, who also come from different language and cultural backgrounds and constantly give me feedback and serve as reliable references on how to keep growing as a translator and interpreter in the languages they speak. I also love to go out jogging with my dog to keep myself physically and mentally active.
