I am a native speaker of U.S. English who only translates into English. My Latin American roots and more than 20 years of residency abroad have provided me with a deep understanding of the Spanish language and Latin American culture. Thirteen years of translation experience has sharpened my eye for detail, resulting in a text that retains all of the ideas conveyed in the original and reads as if originally written in the target language.

I am also very organized, I follow instructions to the letter and I have excellent communication skills, ensuring that the project will be done right the first time around.

Specializations: Corporate Communications, Environmental Issues and Health Care

I am originally from Rhode Island, to which my parents moved from Uruguay shortly before I was born. There I attended the University of Rhode Island, where I earned a B.A. with a major in Spanish and received the Thelen scholarship for enthusiasm and achievement in Hispanic Studies. As a native Speaker of English I translate only from Spanish into English, but as a first generation American, my Latin American roots provide me with unique insight into nuances in meaning that are often overlooked. At the age of 23 I moved back to Uruguay, where I have been honing my language skills for more than 20 years. I began applying these skills as a translator in 2005 and in 2009 I earned my Certificate in Spanish to English Translation from New York University. Since then the bulk of my experience has been in the field of Corporate Communications, but I also have a keen interest in Environmental Issues and Information Technology. You can find more information about my experience and background at my website:
