About me
Me gradué de Northwestern University en junio. Recibí un certificado en periodismo, con otra concentración en el idioma español. Con estas dos concentraciones, tengo mucha experiencia en escribir y corregir. Trabajé unos seis meses en un periódico norteamericano, donde me encargaba de escribir por lo menos 500 palabras cada día. Puedo escribir rápido, y escribir bien. He trabajado como traductora con otras organizaciones, notablamente con Riesgo Cero, un grupo argentino que trabaja en contra de la SIDA. Trabajé con este grupo como voluntario, traduciendo documentos médicos del español al inglés y viceversa. Como auxiliar de la biblioteca universitaria, tenía que organizar la colección de obras del teatro españolas. Traducía los títulos al ingles, y luego leía los archivos para corregir cualquier error. Además, durante mis cinco meses de estudiar en la Universidad de Buenos Aires, tomé un curso dedicado al proceso de la traducción. En este curso, leí las teorías de traducción de Walter Benjamin y aprendí como traducir una obra sin interrumpir lo que quería decir el autor.

I graduated from Northwestern University in June, with a B.S. in Journalism and a second major in Spanish. With these two majors, I have quite a bit of experience both writing and editing. This past year, I worked for six months at an American newspaper, The Indianapolis Star, where I was expected to report and write at least one 500-word story each day. I can write fast, and write well. I have also worked as a translator with other organizations, most notably with Riesgo Cero, an argentine non-profit organization fighting AIDS. I worked with this group as a volunteer, translating medical documents and presentations from Spanish to English and vice versa. As an assistant at the Northwestern University Library's Rare Book Room, I also was in charge of cataloguing the Spanish Play collection. I translated the titles to English, and later read the records to correct any errors. In addition, during my five months of study at the University of Buenos Aires, I took a course dedicated to the process of translation. In this class, I read Walter Benjamin's theories of translation and learned how to translate a work without interfering with the message and style of the author.
