Translation is a difficult process that goes beyond the knowledge of two languages. To translate is to use the target language to express what has been said in the source language. And it we go one step further, to translate is to understand two different cultures. And it is the translator´s job to try to achieve semantic equivalence while bearing in mind the cultural context.
This has been my aim since I started translating in 1999. With this objective in mind, I combine different skills to produce great and natural texts even when the original is not well-written. I fuse the techniques of a learner, researcher, translator, writer and editor. I like going through the text line by line to make sure nothing is forgotten, no changes have been made and no details are forgotten.
