Bio
I have lived in Spain since 1980 and have taught English for over 25 years, 14 of which were at the bilingual British School of Aragon (Colegio Británico de Aragón) and its subsidiary language school, Instituto Británico. My experience in translation and consecutive interpretation has come through work in the educational field, and in recent years, from working with Spanish and other European outsourcers as well as the local business, university and medical communities. I am originally from a US border town, so it could be said that I have been using both Spanish and English all my life. I have done freelance translation work for leading companies such as General Motors, EcoHispanica, Siemens, Bosch and Neff, as well as for regional government institutions and important events such as Madrid Horse Week and Expo 2008. My average translation capacity is 3000 words a day with a burst capacity of approximately 6000 words a day. - RSA Preparatory Certificate TEFL International House Barcelona. (The RSA Prep. Cert.
