I came a little late to translating... I spent a few years trying out different careers. I worked as a legal assistant, a bookkeeper, an office manager, an HR representative, even a restaurant manager... all before I found my calling. While I sometimes wish I had gotten into translation sooner, I'm thankful that I was able to experience such a wide variety of positions. It makes me a stronger translator, as I'm well versed in the vocabulary used in such widely different positions. Now, I'm able to put all of those various skills to use, helping others to communicate with the best, most natural translations possible.
I have over 7 years of experience working with a wide range of documents with special emphasis on legal translation. I have a Certificate in Translation from New York University (2014) and a Bachelor's Degree in English and Spanish from Oberlin College (2008).
I have been translating since 2009. I am a native English speaker with a BA in Spanish Translation, a BS in Behavioral Sciences and an MA in International Development Studies. I have spent time living and working in various places and languages, and have both translation and practical working experience in French, Spanish and Portuguese as well as English.
Born in the UK, living in Spain. Bilingual in Spanish since age 5, I grew up speaking several languages and using them on a daily basis. I have been committed to delivering quality translation services since 2013.
Versatile linguist with over 15 years of translation experience as an in-house translator for a Fortune 500 company (in the industrial automation sector), as translator and QA Manager for several translation agencies and freelance translator for the last five years.
As a committed translator I demonstrate a passion for language, the ability to write clearly and concisely in both English and Spanish, and an obsession with detail and quality. Since January 2017 I have translated 2.4 million words, always exceeding customer expectations.
