I have been working for over thirty years as a professional translator and interpreter. I can offer the accumulated experience developed in a cross section of varied translation and interpretation activities. My professional background in Engineering, Literature and Translation is an asset for the development and support of translation, terminology and localization services. I was born and educated in Mexico City and in the US and am totally fluent in English and Spanish. I feel comfortable with practically any kind of hardware and software set-up.
My clients appreciate the quick turnover time coupled with precise and exact terminology.
