Bio
I have been an in-house translator and interpreter most of my past jobs with assignments which vary from Naval Military Service, Immigration Law Enforcement, Administration of Human Resources and administrative assignments in a Public Health Organization. For the past ten years I have also been a Free-lance translator and interpreter. My work experience includes more than 10 years as an Immigration Inspector and 20 in management of Human Resources (Recruitment,Testing, Selection, Classification, and Benefits). I specialize in the translation of Knowledge Test Materials, product and assembly manuals, Employment Manuals, Safety and Operation Manuals, news releases and letters. Experienced in translation of brochures and instructions dealing with environmental issues and public health.

The documents I translate include documents dealing with government regulations, business documents, forms, and flyers, as well as Birth Certificates, Divorce Decrees, Newsletters, Contracts & Agreements, Instruction Manuals, Testing & Marketing Materials.

My rates are negotiable and based on size and urgency of the job, as well as the level of technicality. Special rates provided to not-for profit agencies. I charge a minimum rate for small projects and one time jobs, unless the per-word charge is higher. My rates for interpretations, both via phone and in person, are based on a per hour rate.

My translations are based on actual job experience and in the knowledge of sales and consumer marketing gained through ownership and management of small businesses.
