Bio

Welcome to the About me page of Proz.com.

A linguist and educationalist at heart, my love for languages led
me to pursue a degree in Translation and in Teaching English as a Foreign
Language at the National University of Córdoba, Argentina. I worked part-time
as a freelance translator and full-time teaching English and English Literature
and worked at the University of Córdoba as an EAP and ESP Tutor.

After moving
to the UK, I gained an MA in Applied Linguistics & TESOL at the University
of Leicester, with a dissertation on Bilingualism and Language Acquisition. I
then became a full-time translator and started being involved in assessment.

I
am currently an assessment specialist in Spanish and English, including IELTS.
I am an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors,
and a Member of CIOL since 2007. In 2010, I became a Certified Localisation
Professional (via TILP), was awarded an MA (Merit) in Management by the London
Metropolitan University in 2012 and became a Chartered Linguist (Translator)
(Education) in 2015.

I have combined my skills and long experience in the
translation industry and in foreign language teaching, and co-founded My
Language Hub, an LSP, of which I am Managing Director.

I am also an IAPTI
member and part of the ProZ Mentoring Team, and Governor of my local school,
where I am linked to various areas such as SEND, More Able, MFL and EAL.
