Translation: As a Chemist with a 20-year background in an Academic environment I can bring specialized knowledge and solid lab experience to chemistry/scientific documents such as papers, books, laboratory guides, sci-tech websites, educational websites, instruction booklets, catalogs, etc.
Regarding other fields, I have performed numerous translations on Technical / Engineering areas including manuals of flow meters, chemical pumps and electronic devices; fact sheets, user's guides and parts lists of lots of power tools (routers, grinders, drills, saws, sanders, planers, etc.); user's guides of gardening tools; software localization.
I can translate Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher documents, HTML pages, and can convert PDF files to Word for translation and back to PDF for delivering.
I am also familiar with CAT tools such as Trados and SDLX. Since I work professionally, I never use machine translation; therefore my clients can be sure that they will be provided with accurate, top-quality translations at very reasonable rates.
Spanish writing: I have been a freelance Spanish-writer with excellent grammar for many years, and always enjoyed assignments involving extensive research. My favorite areas include science, technology, environmental concerns, environmental conscience-raising, music, arts in general, sports and travel.
In addition, I have designed, typed, proofread and/or formatted several ebooks on various fields for ePublishing on CDs, DVDs or the Web.
Working with several types of documents throughout the years has enabled me to deal with lots of scanned texts or converted PDF/ HTML files that required further clean up. The files I uploaded to the "ebook samples" folder in my Portfolio are the result of my editing and formatting skills on MS Word after working with badly formatted source texts.
