Thanks for visiting my profile!

I am a freelance translator and interpreter holding over 10 years of translation experience translating from English into Spanish and vice versa, I am completely bilingual and bicultural (born in the US and raised in the US and in Spain).

Throughout these years I have translated movie scripts, minutes of meetings of various natures, touristic information for public organizations and I have worked in the translation and edition of literary texts as well as a broad range of documentation for relief and development NGOs, amongst others.

It is my bicultural aspect that enables me not only to translate but also to transfer the cultural differences, which may be implicit in the text, and make them understandable for the reader within its context.

Although I have a profound interest in all areas of translation; I am especially attracted to working in the fields of culture, history, literature, marketing, etc. I can provide added value and first-hand experience in these areas due to my education, my career history and my personal interest in expanding my bicultural aspect. I am passionate about learning and investigating and I believe each translation opens a new possibility for investing time and effort in studying a new area of knowledge.

I hope you will find my profile interesting and useful.

I am fully available to answer any questions and I am open to any comments you may have.

Best regards,

Ellie Monteiro

¡Gracias por visitar mi perfil!

Soy una traductora e intérprete autónoma y cuento con más de 10 años de experiencia realizando traducciones del inglés al castellano y viceversa, y soy una persona completamente bilingüe y bicultural (nacida en EEUU y criada parcialmente en España y en EEUU).

Durante estos años he realizado traducciones tales como guiones de cine, actas de reuniones de diversa índole, información turística para organismos oficiales y he colaborado con la traducción y edición de textos literarios así como de diversa documentación para ONGs de ayuda y desarrollo entre otras.

Mi faceta bicultural me permite no solo traducir, sino trasladar las diferencias culturales implícitas en los textos para hacerlos comprensibles a los lectores de la otra cultura dentro de su contexto.

Si bien tengo interés en cualquier área de traducción, por mi formación, trayectoria profesional así como por mi interés personal en desarrollar mi faceta bicultural me interesa especialmente trabajar en los campos de la cultura, historia, literatura, marketing, etc.; áreas en las que puedo aportar experiencia y conocimientos de primera mano dada mi trayectoria profesional y mi educación formal. Me apasiona aprender e investigar y cada traducción me abre la posibilidad de invertir tiempo en estudiar un nuevo campo del conocimiento.

Espero que encuentren de interés mi perfil diferenciador y que pueda serles de utilidad.

Quedo a su entera disposición para cualquier pregunta o comentario que pudiera surgir.

Un cordial saludo,

Ellie Monteiro
