Children Literature

I started working on engineering (electronic, oil&gas), but gradually began moving into science and medical technology. In the last few years I have developed considerable expertise in scientific and medical-related translations, like reports of clinical studies, informed consent forms, drug product dossiers, expert reports, medical devices, and in the area of pharmaceutical marketing. I enjoy the challenge of new subjects, where terminology research is involved.

In addition, I currently work on a daily basis for PRNewswire in the translation of press releases on a wide variety of subjects.

I am comfortable with a wide variety of documents aimed at the general public: marketing brochures, user manuals, guidelines, instructions, etc.

My average production is 2,500 words per day, considering a complex text involving some research. I regularly use SDLX/Trados. I am used to handling large projects and tight deadlines, either personally or as a member of a team.
