DOWNLOAD MY CV
- Research articles, monographs, reference works, textbooks for high school and college students, and other documents related to the psychology and linguistics
- Administrative translation, which covers documents related to management work and could range from something like a company's internal newsletters and communication to a manual on employee training
- Technical specification sheets, user guides, operation manuals, etc. Straightforward stuff, but requires very specific terminology!
- Brochures, signs, maps, menus, etc for those in the tourism industry
- Small websites or personal texts, such as letters or postcards
- I also hope to add non-fiction literature to this list, anything from biographies to self-help books and instructional guides to informational blogs
Born in the U.S. to a Venezuelan and Spanish family, I am a native speaker of both languages. Second-generation Spanish-speakers are very common in the U.S., but too many are unable to maintain a certain level of native fluency. My parents did a great job sending me overseas to Venezuela and Spain and creating a home environment that helped me maintain that relationship with the Spanish language. Having studied topics in both languages and lived in various places, I have an excellent command of each language and a cultural understanding that helps me tailor my translations to their target audiences.
I studied psychology and linguistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, am studying translation at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain, and am fortunate enough to have worked as a project manager and consultant in nutrition labs, psychology labs, and even a pediatric office. My backgrounds allow me to cover a wide range of fields.
GOT A PROJECT? LET'S PLAN A BUDGET
Just below you'll find a general range of rates and prices for the services I offer. The final rate will vary based on aspects like how you would like your product delivered, whether your text is in a Word doc or embedded in an image, or how dense the subject matter is. I charge a higher rate for a research article than I would for your BnB's brochure.
