Bio
I am a 5-year-experienced Certified English<>Spanish Translator. My goals are solving WHATEVER need the client may have and delivering translations with TOP QUALITY and ACCURACY. Also, I am a member of the Board of Professional Translators of Santa Fe (Argentina) and an active member of IAPTI, in which I collaborate with the Technology Team and the Logistics Team.

I believe that the most inspiring aspect of being a translator is the immense cultural and social background you acquire during the process of studying and working in translation. I graduated as a literary, technical and scientific translator in 2011, but since I started studying and working I have been presented with the infinite possibilities this practice offers you. It is mind-opening, constantly challenging and demanding, but at the same time it is extremely rewarding.

Apart from my regular job in this area, since 2010 I have been translating voluntarily for ACDI Adopción a distancia, a child sponsorship institution located in Santa Fe, Argentina. I had the opportunity to translate correspondence between the sponsor parents, the children, and the institution itself, as well as several types of reports and documents.

Also, I am a volunteer translator for CAWST, Canada (Center for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology) since 2011. I work mainly with case studies, articles and reports for technicians and investigators; and also with games and activities for people to learn the importance of consuming drinking water.

Most recently, I had the opportunity to work for a collaborative project for the Central American Women's Network (CAWN). This NGO supports, publicises and learns from the struggles of women in Central America in the defence of their rights.
