Native German, Argentine resident since 1987. Bilingual. University studies in Spanish, Portuguese and German Literature (University of Tübingen, Germany), German as a Foreign Language (INES Lenguas Vivas, Buenos Aires). Degree in Political Science and post-graduate studies in Social Science of Work (both University of Buenos Aires). Actually I am doing translation studies at Lenguas Vivas (Buenos Aires).
Working experience as translator, interpreter and/or professional in automotive industry, telecommunications, education and vocational training in Germany; in higher education and research, public administration, tourism management, international cooperation in vocational training (areas: construction, tourism, multimedia, business administration) in Argentina and El Salvador, publishing in Argentina.

My working philosophy is accurate translation of ideas based on close cooperation with the client (when possible) and extense research.
All translations are checked with experts of the relative field (where I am not myself) and those into Spanish are proof-read by native speakers.
Rates according to extension, deadline and sort of text. Deadlines are arranged according to real capacity of delivery.
