Professional practices Daniel Cottin endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I have been in contact with Spanish and English throughout my whole life, attending an English-speaking school in my native Caracas for my early formative years and then spending a year as a PG student in an academy in Massachusetts, USA. Books and magazines in both languages where always available in my home, giving me a very solid base thanks to my love of reading.

Studying Law and my experience in various firms first as an intern, and then as a lawyer, gave me the tools for investigative research and reading comprehension which are vital when working with legal documents. They also infused me with a work ethic and a drive to excel that remains with me to this day, making me strive to produce excellent work. 

When I receive a translation or proofreading assignment from a client, I make sure to be available at all times, keeping an open and continuous communication when necessary, and doing every possible effort to meet both deadlines as well as clients´ expectations.

Thanks to the experience I have gained since starting as a professional translator in 2012, I have gone from exclusively working with legal documents to being versatile enough to tackle almost any subject, and my willingness to learn keeps me busy exploring those I'm most unfamiliar with.

My goal is to keep learning and improving as a translator, and to gain a reputation as a reliable professional, always willing to go the extra mile for my clients, owning up to my work and seeking to improve and to learn from my mistakes, which I strive to keep as few and far between as possible. My colleagues are also an important tool to obtain new knowledge as well as to offer my help and assistance whenever needed.

So far in 2020, I have translated over 700,000 words and was nominated for Day Translation´s 2020 Translator of the Year Award.
