Professional practices Marcelo Silveyra endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

I am a German>English, Spanish>English translator with over thirteen years of professional experience and a primary focus on corporate documents, although my areas of expertise and experience reach far beyond the corporate realm. Among the main ones, one can find the following broad categories: Corporate (including documents such as marketing, PR, development plans, manuals, and internal communications), engineering-related (particularly when dealing with electrical and electronics engineering), technological, IT-related, and scientific. Furthermore, I also have experience in fields such as social sciences and arts (particularly music - especially classical).

I hold two Bachelor's degrees: a B.S. in Electronics and Communications Engineering (from the ITESM in Monterrey, Mexico), and a B.F.A. in Music (from the California Institute of the Arts in California, USA), which contribute special degrees of expertise in those areas of translation. Nevertheless, the majority of my work has been for corporate environments, and more often than not has dealt with documents of a highly confidential nature. For translation samples of different kinds, please visit my Samples page. Furthermore, if you need my resume or references of any kind, feel free to contact me.

Finally, please visit my Discussions page for short comments on the different kinds of Spanish, how to choose a professional translator and why it is necessary to do so, and tips on finding an adequate quote while making sure that you receive quality work.

Please note that I only translate into American English and Mexican Spanish, although I can translate from any variety of either English or Spanish.
