Skype Me™!

I am a Bolivian who has been translating for the past 5 years; I started out translating academic articles for my classmates during our Ph.D. program. I am a resourceful person who can get a job done, and I do it to the best of my ability. I love challenges, and I love to learn about new subjects. I am currently writing my Ph.D. dissertation and translating is a way to make a living, while I finish my studies, but it is also a very nice way to live a life: it is an art that I like to practice.

I enjoy studying, so I have studied for many years and I keep on studying, I earned a B.Sc. in Economics and International Studies from Iowa State University (Ames, Iowa); and a MBA in International Management from Thunderbird-The School of Global Management (Glendale, Arizona). Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. in International Development, Universidad Mayor de San Andres (La Paz, Bolivia), as well as on my M.Sc. in Social Psychology, from Universidad Católica Boliviana (La Paz, Bolivia).

I do enjoy translating. I believe that language is the way that we try to convey subjective thoughts for others to apprehend them; in translation, there is a more complex process that includes culture; as a social scientist, I offer my services to try to convey culture through language. I would like to think that I help transmuting spirits from one language to the other, as John Millington Synge, the Irish writer said “A translation is no translation, unless it will give you the music of a poem along with the words of it. “

Finally, and to differentiate myself a bit from the array of fine translation services available: I can offer you prime translation services at Bolivian rates, adding to my work all what I have learned throughout the years, and most importantly, adding a special, social, psychological and cultural touch.
