Service Description

I can offer translation services for legal, medical, business, or academic documents from English to Spanish or from Spanish to English. My work at Alliance Business Translations involved the translation of similar documents, particularly documents pertaining to divorce and custody and technical manuals. During my employment at Youth Villages and at Boston Medical Center, I have had to translate medical documents, court orders, and legal documents such as custodial agreements and informed consents for clients and research participants. When I wrote my thesis for my Master's degree in Latin American Studies, I researched court transcriptions, human rights reports, laws and legal reports, newspaper articles, and government publications, most of which were in Spanish, as well as conducting interviews in Spanish that were later transcribed into English. In addition, for my Bachelor's degree in Spanish and my Master's degree in Spanish, I performed a large amount of academic reading and writing in Spanish.
