I lived and worked in Quito Ecuador for 6 years and during this time became fully fluent in Spanish, both written and spoken. I have taken graduate level classes and professional seminars in Spanish, and written a number of academic papers. I first began translating on-the-job in my position as a sales representative in a flower exports company, and I soon after began freelance work with an Ecuadorian translations firm. I have continued to do freelance translating, proofreading, and writing work over the past five years, along with numerous translations in a job I held as Projects Coordinator at a small, indigenous-based NGO. I have translated legal documents, aviation and automotive related materials, project proposals, policies and agreements, amendments, and all manner of general communications. I have done work with the Central Bank of Ecuador including the translation of a large set of documents related to money laundering legislation and regulations. I have also written and translated content for a variety of web-based enterprises.
I am currently in Barcelona, Spain pursuing a MA in Literary and Audiovisual Translation. More information about this comprehensive degree program may be found here: http://www.idec.upf.edu/master-en-traduccion-literaria-y-audiovisual. I am a member of the American Literary Translators Association, and hope to increase my work in the literary and audiovisual fields in the years to come.
Thanks to my liberal arts background and my broad range of interests, I am highly flexible regarding the subject matter and content of texts. I will do all outside research and access external resources and tools as needed in order to complete the projects assigned to me. I pride myself on the quality of my work and I sincerely love doing translations. I consider every job I take on to be of the highest importance.
Whatever your translating, proofwriting, or content writing needs may be, I guarantee you will be satisfied with the results. I look forward to hearing from you!
