Bio

Born in Uruguay, my native language is Spanish. From an early age, while in primary school, I was an avid reader. While I was still a pre-teenage child, my family migrated to Australia, where I completed my secondary education and acquired native-like proficiency in the English language. Later, as an adult, I migrated to Spain, where I lived for fourteen years. This experience helped me to acquire a broader understanding of cultural differences, as well as a range of accents and different ways of communicating.

So, what makes me a great translator? In-depth knowledge of two languages? Sure. Attention to detail? Absolutely. But a translator needs so much more.

For starters, an inquisitive mind, and I certainly have one of those. I am always looking for something to learn. No subject is boring; no book is too thick. DIY methods and techniques for food preservation, cheese making, screen printing, brewing beer, landscaping, jewelry, pottery, archery, computer programming, analogue and digital electronics... the list goes on, and I have researched how it's done, and then I did it. And then there are more abstract subjects, like the origin of words, the differences and similarities between languages, and the patterns in those languages. I want to know it all.

It is that inquisitive nature that drives me to research the subjects of my translations to the point that my clients can always be confident that their readers are getting the complete message; not just the right words, but the register and the tone.
