English, French into Spanish Translator
Since 2004

I am a specialist in technical, computing related translation: The Inquirer, SUN MICROSYSTEMS, eWeek, Computing, and also a literary translator, with nine books fully translated and published and currently working on the tenth.

I live in Geneve, where I follow the Master of Translation imparted by the ETI (Université de Genève). Before studying Translation and Interpreting (Degree/B.A. Hons Level The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain), I did my studies in Journalism and Communication (also B.A. Hons level Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain), and I had a four-year work experience as a Journalist. As an editor/writer for Computing magazine, I had the chance to develop my talent and training as a technician writer. During the four years as a member of the editorial/executive board of 01 Consulting, Madrid, Spain, I had the opportunity to travel around the USA and Europe with top one firms like IBM, Microsoft or Intel, interviewing their executives and attending to a wide range of press meetings. In addition to this, I studied International Affairs for an academic term at the California State University of Los Angeles (CSULA). Also, I lived in New Zealand for five months (working in Localization for QUALCOMM), Australia for a year and in France for two years.


Prior to my job in Computing, I worked in Mexico as a local reporter. Over there, I went straight into the profession, covering hot-news like El Niño hurricane. This experience provided me with the skills of managing new and on-the-limit situations.
I am good at computing. I have an advanced knowledge of some TAO tools, mainly TRADOS, and I can easily handle the multimedia and web orientated software: Dreamweaver Flash, Adobe Photoshop or Premier, including all kind of office suites such as Microsoft Office or OpenOffice. I own Trados 6.5 Freelance software.
