Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

I'm a graduated legal translator whose mother language is Spanish, I learned English at a very young age.
I finish my five-year degree in translation in 2004, I was an ESL teacher for a year in Kazakhstan, and after that I spent 4 years working at a high-school in southern CA, where I was the head of the publications department, so I have quite a bit of experience when it comes to editing and proofreading, as well as translating of course.

Service Description

Very professional translations, EN/SP and SP/EN, I will deliver your work on time and done at my best. I enjoy translation, I think it is an art, and if it's not done properly it can send the wrong message to the readers, so I'm committed to do it very well.
Culture is another thing that I take into careful account, as I lived in different places I know how much culture is reflected in documents, articles, books etc.
