Professional practices Michael torhan endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Native English speaker with native ability in Spanish. I learned to write well in my former hi-tech career. The Master's in Spanish came later—and then I began translating, teaching, and traveling. I now split my time between California and Jalisco, Mexico, where I have vacationed since I was a teenager. Now I get to live there, too!

I prefer my work to be impeccable and I want you to be happy with it, too. And if you are not, I will assist you until you are; should you ever find that an error escaped the proofreading process—even three months later— I will help you remedy it, or any other issue.
