About me
What is there to be known about my career that you may find interesting?

To begin with, in the course of more than 25 years in the profession, I have been fortunate to build up a solid, long-lasting, and rewarding network of clients and colleagues. As I strive to maintain and expand this network, I do my best to continue developing myself creating value in every aspect of my work. I consider translation as my foremost mission in life, and aspire to make great and sincere contributions in this field.

You will find in my resume more than 8,000 published and translated press articles, websites, software tools, newsletters, corporative documents and handbooks, movie scripts and journals, plus more than 80 published translated books: essays about Social Science, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Business and Religion, as well as Literature (novels, sci-fi, poetry, and best-sellers) for top publishers from Spain, México, Argentina and Japan, all with their respective ISBNs.

I have a long and fruitful experience tutoring translators, editorial and press staff. Many of my former students are now active and successful translators in different parts of the world. It is my wish that they outshine me and come to be first-line linguists. Fostering capable successors is an important goal and purpose in my professional life.

I also have expertise in diplomatic translation, PR documents, corporative and organizational guidelines and handbooks. I take assignments related to governmental offices from several Spanish-speaking countries, as well as for several agencies in the UN system.

As for my scholarly and academic studies, they focus in Linguistics and Communication, Cultural Studies, Psychology, Eastern Studies, Religion, and Peace Studies. I am a doctoral candidate in Translation Studies at Universitat Jaume I in Castellón, Spain, and I have earned a Interuniversitary Master in Research in Translation and Interpretation Studies by Universitat Jaume I-Universitat de Valencia. I have also majored in Psychology (Universidad de Buenos Aires) and have additional postgraduate studies in Education (FLACSO), Contemporary Philosophy (UNMP), as well as complementary formal language studies (French and Japanese). Besides my steadfast activity as an English-Spanish translator, some of my translations from French, Italian and Portuguese have been published in Spain and Argentina.

Movies and reading are the closest to a hobby in a very busy daily life, where a big family and volunteering work also constitute a source of pride and joy.

As for my vision and mission as a translator, please feel welcome at my English website, www.letras-vivas.com.

As a personal remark, I am a Soka Gakkai International member, and I consider Daisaku Ikeda as my mentor both in the art of writing, and in the art of living. Whichever impact I may have in connection with words and writing, I have learnt from him, to whom I am sincerely and deeply indebted. I recommend his works and books to every translator and linguist.
