English <---> Spanish Translations
I am a fluent speaker of both Spanish and English and have done translations of various kinds over the years. I enjoy language and working in translation because I see it as a way to help people in bridging cultural barriers and forming connections between people who otherwise would be separated by the barrier of language. I have studied both Latin American Spanish and Peninsular Spanish and am able to do translations in both styles according to your needs.
I am able to do emails, letters, immigration documents, and anything else that is approximately 1 page in length. For longer documents, a price can be negotiated as well. Turn around time will depend on the length and complexity of the document. but on average I will be able to return your document to you in under a week I will provide you with a pdf document of the translation to your email as soon as it is complete. I have samples of my work available if you are interested in seeing them as well.
Training & Qualifications
I have a BA in Spanish and an MA in Applied Linguistics. My family is bilingual (English-Spanish) and I live and work in a bilingual community in California.
I have lived and worked in Latin America both as a student and a Peace Corps Volunteer and still maintain close contacts there. In addition to the linguistic knowledge, I have gained a culture knowledge tied to the Spanish language that is very important in translation services.
Availability & Preferences
I can work via google docs and/or email and am readily available anytime.
