I offer several language services in English and Spanish and deliver quality, well-researched texts designed to help you break down the barriers that language and culture can sometimes put up.

I work on all sorts of formats and text types.
I’m professional, qualified, and passionate about language.

Born in the U.S. to a multi­cul­tural family originally from Venezuela and Spain, I am a native speaker of both English and Spanish. And while second-generation Spanish-speakers in the U.S. are by no means un­common, too many are unable to maintain a certain level of native fluency.

My parents, like so many others, had their work cut out for them trying to get my sib­lings and I to answer them back in Spanish, but in sending me on several trips to both countries and creating a home environment that highlighted the importance of strengthen­ing family bonds, they success­fully cemented my relationship with the Spanish language and our family’s cultures.

Having studied topics in both languages and lived in various places, I have an excellent com­mand of both languages and a unique understanding of cul­tures with which to tailor a text to its target audience.

For more details, take a look at my CV, also available in Spanish.

Let’s talk specifics.

In addition to subject matter and number of words, there are several aspects that determine what a language professional charges for a project, like how well-written the text is to begin with, what file format it’s in, and whether a specific piece of software is required.
