About me
I am a chemical engineer with ten years of experience working for American, European, and
Colombian oil and gas companies, as well as a skilled and careful linguist with native fluency in
Spanish and acquired fluency in English. My expertise in oil and gas (transportation, metering,
pipelines, compressors, pumps, technology, and related processes)
makes me qualified to
help you with all of your translation needs as regards this complex field.

As an engineer, I am constantly in touch with technical information and know how to interpret and
convey it in a way that is accurate and industry-appropriate for the hard sciences. My background
makes me your ideal translator for both technical documents and university-level educational
materials in these areas.

My work is characterized by the utmost standards of professionalism, and I am proud to be able
to partner with clients and provide expert language solutions for the Latin American market.
Please note that all Spanish-English translations are edited and proofread by a native-English
colleague with whom I have worked closely for several years.

Get in touch to tell me a little about your company and your translation needs, and I will be sure
to respond to you in a timely manner. I am known for being highly responsive, friendly, and
easy to work with.
I am also happy to provide samples of my previous translations or
complete a test translation to assure you of the high quality and reliability of my work.

Education: B.S. Chemical Engineering, Postgraduate Specialization Degree in Natural Gas Engineering
