My Translation Background
A native U.S. English speaker, I have over 15 years cumulative experience translating from Spanish to English. From working in a law firm assisting Spanish-speaking clients to translating hand-written medical records and documents to reviewing and editing a Spanish voice-response system, I have tackled assignments from a wide range of sources.
To complement this knowledge, I worked at a financial services firm advancing from my entry-level position answering incoming calls from Spanish-speaking investors to managing large projects using Six Sigma methodology. Most recently, I have successfully run a home-based business selling cosmetics as well as mentored others building their businesses.
In early 2009, I launched my translation services business on a full-time basis. I currently manage multiple project assignments at the same time and translate an average of 7,500 words per week. I use Wordfast, ABBY Fine Reader as well as all MS Office software applications to complete translations that mirror the source formatting as closely as possible. Of course, if there is a client-specific formatting request, I strictly adhere to those guidelines as well.
My Academic Experience
I hold a B.A. in Spanish from West Chester University and earned my certification in translation from Spanish to English from New York University in May 2012. I have also taken graduate-level project management courses at George Washington University and completed a semester-long immersion program in Seville, Spain.
With each project, I conduct extensive research in order to provide the best possible translation, effectively utilizing the most accurate and appropriate terminology based on the context and your audience. I also work with other native speakers to review, edit and proofread all translation assignments to ensure you receive a high quality product.
My mission is to translate not just the words, but the context and meaning of your documents to promote clear communication and understanding across cultures.
