I can professionally translate, localize, proofread and edit texts from a range of specialization fields including Business, Technical, Pharmaceutical, Medical, Legal, Software and Websites.

After working for more than 15 years as a professional translator, I have acquired vast experience and expertise to effectively deal with any linguistic challenge related to the English/Spanish language pair. Throughout my career, I have developed important resources such as good communication skills (both person to person and remote), attention to detail, as well as organizational and desktop skills.

I see translation as the art of conveying ideas as if they had originally taken shape in the target language, ensuring accuracy through an in-depth comprehension of the source text, and the use of the best equivalents and idiomatic attributes that distinguish the target language.

Quality Assurance
As professional translation standards require, I complete a number of steps before submitting a translation project; these include a translation review, as well as proofreading, both human and automatic spell checks. I also use Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools which have become essential to handle workflows as they allow the work with a wide variety of file formats, speed the translation process, and contribute to timely delivery of projects. Also, as part of my quality assurance policy, I never hesitate to contact clients for clarifications. Flexibility
In order to satisfy a diverse client base, I am available for contact day and night. On previous agreement, I can handle rush translation assignments or work on weekends.
