About me
I started translating articles and short stories that I wanted to share with friends. Soon I was dedicating more and more time to this exercise, and began to make my living of it. During the 80’s, aware of the fact that there were a lot of social sciences research works in English that Bolivian social scientists needed to read, I had the opportunity to apply for financial support to initiate a translation project with two books:
Orígenes del Poder Militar (Bolivia 1879-1935)
, written by the British historian, James Dunkerley (published in 1987 and 2003); and Bolivia: La Revolución Inconclusa by the US political scientist, James M. Malloy (published in 1989). Both translations were published. About a year later James Dunkerley wanted to publish another of his works in Spanish, and asked me to translate (Rebelión en las Venas, published in 1988, and 2003). Since then, researchers and social scientists contacted me to have articles and books translated.

My translation Nuevas Lenguas del Estado: El Pueblo Guaraní y la Educación Indígena en Bolivia, written by Bret Gustafson (US anthropologist)was published in November 2015. Previously, my translations Bolivia: Procesos de Cambio by John Crabtree and Ann Chaplin, and Desafíos de la Interculturalidad: Educación, Desarrollo e Identidades Indígenas en el Perú by Maria Elena García, were published in 2008 and 2013 respectively. I translated articles for the 2007 National Human Development Report (UNDP), as well as “Sustainable agriculture: A pathway out of poverty for India’s and East Africa's rural poor, and A pathway out of poverty for rural poor”, as per SUSTAINET’s request. Previously, I also worked as editor at a Writing Workshop sponsored by SUSTAINET. Plural Editores published my translation of another James Dunkerley’s work, Sueños de Libertad en las Américas, cuatro cerebros y un nombre, in 2007.

In 2008, I was awarded with the Premio Panhispánico de Traducción Especializada, de la Región Andina, sponsored by Unión Latina and the Federación Española de Ciencia y Tecnología for my translation of John Crabtree’s book Perfiles de la Protesta: Política y Movimientos Sociales en Bolivia, published by PIEB and Fundación UNIR in La Paz Bolivia in 2005:

The Archivo y Biblioteca Nacionales de Bolivia (ABNB) in Sucre, Bolivia published my translation of Cynthia Radding’s book Paisajes de Poder e Identidad: Fronteras Imperiales en el Desierto de Sonora y Bosques de la Amazonía.

Although I have specialized in these fields, I also translate documents for Org./Desarr./Coop. International: reports, assessment papers, press releases, papers and articles on development, social, financial and environmental issues, and also work as editor and proofreading in Spanish. While living in Spain, I was also part of translators’ pools at international events in Madrid.

My work is performed within a framework that insures professionalism, faithful translation of the author’s ideas and perspectives. It is also sensitive to content and style, as well as to meeting deadlines.
