Virginia Recaséns Cueto is a writer, journalist, editor and translator whose passion is language—in particular, passion for her two native tongues: Spanish and English. A long-time resident of Miami, Florida, she works and publishes in both languages.

She also holds a Diploma Superior de Español Como Lengua Extranjera (Advanced Diploma - Spanish as a Foreign Language), granted through the Ministry of Education and Culture and the University of Salamanca, in Spain.

Her extensive translation experience encompasses a broad scope of news, financial and feature articles, as well as legal and business documents, academic transcripts and diplomas, and literary translation.

Five years as a translator and editor at Agencia EFE, Spain’s international news agency, provided a transition from translating to journalism, covering the growing U.S. Hispanic community of which she is a part.

Ms. Cueto was involved in the creation of Hispanic Trends from its inception, serving on its editorial board before assuming full editorial direction.

From January 2006 to June 2007 she served as Editor of, a Spanish-language website covering Latin American, U.S. and world news that was the digital counterpart of Tiempos del Mundo, a sister publication to The Washington Times. Under Ms. Cueto’s direction was re-launched in December 2006 as a daily news site with a new design, expanded coverage and original and multimedia content, increasing Web traffic 1,000% in the first five months after launch.

An avid reader, Ms. Cueto has traveled through the United States, South America, Spain and France, where she also conducted genealogical research on French, Spanish, English and Irish branches of her family. She was profiled in This Day in the Life: Diaries from Women Across America, edited by Joni B. Cole, Rebecca Joffrey and B.K. Rakhra, Three Rivers Press, New York, 2005.
