Medical Doctor and Ph.D. in Biology, many years of science translation, also experience in pharmaceuticals, chemistry, patents, technology, manuals.

I have been working as a translator for 12 years. I was a lecturer and researcher at the
Genetics Department of the School of Medicine in Uruguay before. Also, I did a postdoctoral
research stay in Dublin, Ireland from 1994 to 1997, and acquired fluency in
spoken and written English.

I have
always liked languages, I studied French, Portuguese, and English in secondary
school. I did the Advanced Translator Course in 2007 to keep my English alive
after I came back from Ireland and discovered that I like translation very
much, and was a good occupation after I finished working at the University.
Now, I work full-time as a scientific translator. As I live in a small country, my work is oriented to the worldwide market. I work mainly for translation agencies that offer services to the main pharmaceutical companies, and I am proud of being part of
the pharma pool and Certified PRO Network.

I take continuous
education courses in my interest fields and related emerging subjects.

completing my jobs I use Microsoft Office, online and offline CAT tools,
general and specialized dictionaries, the Cosnautas site with tools for medical
translators of Spanish into English. I research the important terms and
discuss them with colleagues, keeping the client’s confidentiality. I review
the translation once completed, and use Word grammar and spell-check.

I think a good
translator must be reliable, learned, meticulous, punctual, responsible, with
good command of the source language and native (or very fluent) in the target
language and the topics.
