I am a professional linguist with a BA in French Studies and a MA in Translation and Interpreting.

Spanish is my native language but I learnt French very young and I speak it as well as my mother tongue. I also have a good command of English. Languages are definitely my big passion and have become my profession.

I am also an experienced teacher of French as a foreign language, I have been working in this field for 7 years.

In addition to languages, I have developed strong web skills. I am acquainted with content management systems such as WordPress and a variety of markup and scripting languages such as HTML/XHTML/HTML5, CSS, and PHP&MySQL.
Service Description
I mainly provide language-related services.

As a translator, I only translate into my two native languages (Spanish and French). These are the combinations I can provide:
- Spanish to French.
- French to Spanish.
- English to Spanish/French.

Besides translation:
- Article writing in Spanish/French.
- Proofreading in Spanish/French.
- Transcriptions in Spanish/French.
- Creation of language learning material in Spanish/French.

Although I have been living in Spain for a while, I am Colombian-raised. I am quite aware of the differences between Latin American and European varieties of Spanish. I take advantage of it, I can complete assignments that either need a neutral language or are targeted at a specific area.

My computational and web skills enable me to:
- Apply SEO techniques.
- Work directly in HTML files or CMS systems.
