Bio
A Bilingual Secretary with a degree from Universidad Catolica de Chile, I practiced my profession from 1973 through 1990, always assisting Chilean and American senior executive officers who required me to translate business correspondence and technical literature into their respective native languages.

Two years with Empresa Nacional del Petroleo (ENAP), five with Dimacofi S.A. -an office equipment importer/distributor, and eight years with The Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A. (Chile Branch), gave me the chance to enhance my working competencies through hands-on experiences in most of my employers' activities.

I am well acquainted with the legal, imports/exports, personnel, technology, strategic planning, sales, financial, accounting, reporting, corporate policy-making, and internal control procedures.

When Chase closed its operation in Chile, I used my contacts and expertise to rapidly build a client base and start my career as a freelance translator.

A faithful client portfolio that soon expanded into such diverse areas as psychoanalysis, education, and systems engineering has earned me a reputation as a reliable translator -and, most importantly, one that derives true joy from earning her living by doing what she likes best: NICELY COMPOSED, TARGET READER-ORIENTED, TIMELY DELIVERED TRANSLATIONS.

My main areas of expertise are:
Business – Bidding processes, correspondence, CV's
Financial – Financial reports, audits, banking
Technology – Software development, systems engineering
Education – Academic certificates and other grant-related documentation
Legal/administrative – Contracts, patents, corporate charters, official standards
Medical – Pharmaceutical, medical reports, drug trials
