Professional practices Adriana Diaz Enciso endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am an author. I write books, and as most writers in the history of this world, I earn my living doing things related to books and language.

I started translating and doing editorial work over 35 years ago. My specialities are, not surprisingly, literature, the arts and humanities.

My love for translation is still the adventure of language and meaning. Because I love language, I know that every word and every single construction of words contain meanings that have to be patiently sought, and that there is no such thing as a mechanical translation.

It is the journey through meaning that I enjoy so much, and also everything you learn about different worlds as a translator, for we know that translation involves a lot of research too.

I love what I do. I devote my most painstaking effort to every single work I do so that the result is a beautifully crafted text that does justice to the original.

I carry this passion for language to every translation I do, no matter if its subject matter is not one of my specialities. Meaning and learning are everywhere. This conviction and this passion are, I believe, my best credentials.
