Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $15

I'm an American teacher, translator, and writer in Zaragoza, Spain.

I learned Mexican Spanish in SoCal, Argentinian Spanish from professors at Utah Valley University, and Peninsular Spanish in Zaragoza, Spain. I started as an interpreter, then became an ESL and Spanish teacher, and now I'm a writer and translator.

I'm dedicated and disciplined and will provide you a quality text in reasonable time. I also enjoy graphic design, web design, and eating foods with strange names.

Service Description

I'm useful when you need something with a specific flavor that you want done right the first time. In translations and writing I understand how to bring living into the finished product. I work quickly but carefully, translating about 500 words every two hours. Any faster and you'd sacrifice quality for quantity.

Previous writing experience includes: Lifehack and travel articles, how to guides, product reviews, linguistic research, educational articles, short stories, and mystery novelas.

Previous translations include: Marketing materials for food companies, Professional Dance company bios and dance interpretations, short works of fiction, poetry, travel paperwork, insurance documents, university documents, Resumes/CVs, hotel employee regulations, and much more.

I use CAT tools (OmegaT, and WordFast) to manage longer translations, but only in order to organize longer pieces, and not to replace the human touch.
