CV/Resume CV/Resume (DOC)
I am currently a full-time Spanish Lecturer at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas (USA). I have also taught Spanish at Tulane University in New Orleans and at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where I taught an undergraduate Spanish translation course.

I am a former member of the American Translators Association (accredited as a Spanish > English translator) and of the New Mexico Translators and Interpreters Association. I do both Spanish > English and English > Spanish translation (the latter with the kind assistance of Spanish-speaking editors and proof readers).

I was a member of the Summer Institute of Linguistics (Instituto Lingüístico de Verano) and Wycliffe Bible Translators for several years, working in indigenous-language literacy and bilingual education in Colombia, where I got to see the country from Pasto in the south to La Guajira in the north.

I do occasional short to medium-length translation jobs. I have translated short legal documents (mostly depositions), short articles in the social sciences and I once translated a 30-page project bid for a telecommunications instalation in Honduras. Most recently I translated a 45-page safety and operations manual for Spanish-speaking truck drivers in the southwestern U.S.

I charge from .10 - .15 cents per word ($20 - $30 per 200-word page), depending on the difficulty of the material to be translated.
