About me
I am currently a Ph.D. student at Universidad de Salamanca, Spain,majoring in Translation Studies,and also specializing on translation shifts in legal documents from bilingual societies. I also work on Neutral Spanish issues in film subtitling. I have a M.A. in Translation from the University of Puerto Rico, where I have worked as a translator, junior editor, and research assistant. My expertise areas are Humanities (linguistics, history, literature, etc); Biology, Law, and Tourism. I have also done editing and translation work for some Engineering firms in Puerto Rico. I am looking forward to research collaborations and some freelance work.

En estos momentos, curso un Doctorado en Traductología en la Universidad de Salamanca, España, con enfoque particular en los desfases en los documentos jurídicos de sociedades bilingües. También investigo el problema de la neutralidad del español en la subtitulación de películas. Poseo una maestría en Traducción de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, en donde he trabajado como traductor, editor-corrector y asistente de investigación. Me especializo en las Humanidades (lingüística, historia, literatura, etc.), Biología, Textos Jurídicos y Turismo. Además, he trabajado como editor y traductor para bufetes de ingerieros en Puerto Rico. Espero buscar colaboraciones de investigación y clientes para trabajo autónomo.
