Bio

Claudia Alvis Translation and Interpretation Services (English - Spanish)

About me

I'm a full-time English to Spanish translator and interpreter since 2002. I was raised in Lima, Peru and my native language is Spanish. My specialization is Software and Game Localization. I can handle several formats like HTML, XML, PHP, ASP, FLASH, etc. I can also localize software including web-based and Windows Mobile, iPhone and Android applications!

Many projects consist in different kinds of files like Web, text, graphics, help files, software, etc. So I use several specialized tools to maintain the consistency of the terminology throughout the whole project, and also to assure the linguistic and technical quality of the final product. Additionally, your product will be localized for the specific market. That is, your product will be translated and adapted keeping in mind the cultural and linguistic characteristics of that public.

I am also an English and Spanish Interpreter in Peru, specialist in liaison and consecutive interpreting.

Member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and the Asociación de Traductores Profesionales del Perú (ATPP).
