Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

While translating you constantly look not only for the right words but to achieve an overall context that will let others in, while closing --as much as possible-- the gap between two languages; and when writing, you give life to thoughts, images, processes, etc., in a conscientious effort to reach others.

I have just started an MA in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and I hold a BA in Art with emphasis in Art History and a minor in Philosophy. During my BA I worked as a TA in the class "Modern Art" given by Ph.D. Maria Clara Bernal...

Service Description

I am good with words and I love languages. I am a native Spanish speaker but I have lived and worked in English speaking environments and I have over six years of experience teaching English to native Spanish and Persian speakers (in Colombia and Iran accordingly) alike. My portfolio contains scans of my TOEFL and BULATS tests, showing my language proficiency in General and Business Oriented English.

I enjoy writing about art, crafts, teaching and personal experiences, and I am excellent with product descriptions. I can write with ease in English and Spanish alike. I also offer translations, English to Spanish and vice versa, of excellent quality. I am a passionate and efficient worker, very detail oriented and always keen to revise my work, the keystone of which is to maintain accuracy while delivering meaning. To this purpose, I personally undertake all my translations: I do not use any translation software!

I am good at what I do and I keep an open and constant communication with all my clients.You can rest assured that I will get the job done in the best possible way and in a timely manner.
