My former careers in data processing (in the banking, health insurance, and employment service sectors, as well as for Siderrurgica del Orinoco, in Venezuela), agriculture, textile production, typesetting, and education (instructor of French, Spanish, and English) inform my working vocabulary. I recently translated "Adorable Fruits and Vegetables to Crochet: Delicious Decorations for your Table" by Marie Clesse (ISBN-10: 0486842770, available April, 2020). Spin-Off magazine published my article about handspinning and weaving. I wrote a manual to help Spanish teachers prepare for the Praxis-II exam. Other literary projects include translation of Lucia Canovi's "Marre de la vie?" Fed up with life? Volume 1: a question of depression, Les Phares Editions (May 24, 2013) ASIN: B00D09WB28 Volume 2: Depression is not a disease! Les Phares Editions (Oct. 25, 2013) ASIN: B00G757BMM

My translations from French to English include handwritten medical reports, legal briefs, medical journal articles, informed consent forms for drug research, an insurance policy for inland navigation of a pleasure craft, contracts of real estate sales for the island of Jersey, an online fashion catalog, maritime shipping reports, CVs, a web site for recruiting volunteers for drug trials, PowerPoint presentations of business plans, a travel guide, technical descriptions of water-quality testing equipment and multiplexing technology, safety regulations for workers in the power generation and chemical industries, publicity for art exhibitions, press releases, documentation for a computerized inventory system, the biography of an Algerian statesman, and brochures for a theme park.

My translations from Spanish to English include handwritten medical reports, legal briefs, informed consent forms for drug research, medical journal articles, a group term life insurance policy and accompanying application forms (Mexico), two graduate student papers on the topics of postmodernist trends in architecture and intelligent buildings, a partial novel, and documentation of a computer-based accounting system.

My proofreading and editing projects include a cookbook, advertising copy, publicity, press releases, scholarly research papers, and an agenda for a meeting of a truth and reconciliation commission.

Feedback from clients includes these comments:
You got praised by the QM for your translation in this file, she said you’re Excellent…. But we already knew that!

Thanks for doing this so quickly!

I cannot thank you enough for your detail, your quality and your conscientiousness. You are fabulous role model for translators worldwide (including me!).

Looking forward to working again in the near future – you’re a gem!
