I am one of the most experienced and efficient translators on Freelancer! My native language is Spanish, and I have an excellent English level. I am a translation specialist with over 10 years expertise and one of the best on the platform. I work on translations from English to Spanish & Spanish to English (Portuguese to Spanish and vice versa also available) and I count with over 55 projects completed with a high professionalism and client satisfaction, hundreds more done off site, and projects for a multitude of important companies & studios, having also worked as Community Manager and Customer Support, transcribing audio, building databases, performing on some voiceovers and as virtual assistant. Linguistics graduate at the Gabriel René Moreno University. Detail-oriented, fast learner, effective and disciplined.
I was trained as a comparative linguist of Indo-european languages, so I completed the usual drill of Latin, Greek and Sanskrit. After some years studying ancient languages, I decided to focus on more mundane matters and I moved on to the Romance and Germanic branches of the family.
Quite a change, during which I picked up what I know of German, Dutch and Danish. Reading Middle German poetry was among the best intellectual experiences of my life. Alas! Everything comes to an end. As I was growing bored of the theoretical part of linguistics, I started to look into professional translation, an activity which at first glance seemed very natural to me, although I was more used to the smell of old pages than I was to staring at a computer screen.
That was the moment when I decided to broad my horizons by traveling to the People’s Republic of China, where I completed an internship and an intensive Chinese language program.
I spent two years and half studying Mandarin in Beijing. Currently, I work as a translator, a teacher and an interpreter. I have assisted companies that buy Chinese/Taiwanese machines that need an interpreter when Chinese/Taiwanese engineers come to install their machines and teach them how to run them.
