My name is Triston and I translate stuff! I've been working in Spanish to English translation since 2007, mostly focusing on financial and legal texts, though I've translated a few video games over the years as well. I opened T.A.G. Translations and Design with my wife, Gaby, in 2010. We mostly support internet marketers and those working in search engine optimization. We also host a YouTube channel with tips and tutorials for translators and other small business owners that want to grow their businesses online. We have tutorials on how to build websites, how to optimize those sites so that they appear in Google searches, and even how to optimize and customize your ProZ.com profile.

Like every love story... Sep 28, 2016

...the beginning was promising. I loved the idea of Joe Outsourcer but he got lost in the alleys of ProZ FAQ material and while trying to follow him I kept stumbling at the annoying sound of Skype until I forgot he ever existed.
If anyone sees him, please tell him I'll give him another chance if he drops by my profile and leaves some helpful tipsicon_smile.gif

Notice to all: Joe is taken! Oct 2, 2016

Thanks to Maria's professional guidance, Joe Outsourcer did find me eventually. So, the story does have a "happily ever after" potential and I hope we won't need another relationship counseling any time soon...icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you, Vesna! Oct 3, 2016

The image you created made my day. Many thanks to you and to everyone who attended this session last week, and a very happy (and only slightly belated) International Translation Day!
