I am a translator with a broad cultural background: I have translated professionally for more than 45 years, and I have interpreted for more than 15 years; during that time I have been exposed to all the possible environments and knowledge fields. I am also a writer, something which enhances my stylistic skills, and I have a long experience in literary translation for major editorial houses in Mexico and abroad.
My cultural background is also quite diverse: my origins and traditional culture are Mediterranean; French, Spanish and a little bit Italian, and I was brought up in these three environements. I was raised in Mexico, but attended university in France and Mexico, I worked and lived in Canada, have travelled worldwide and lived in a number of countries. My professional activities have also opened a full scope of cultural assets: literature, music, theater, dance, philosophy, history and cultural studies are just some of the fields in which I have immersed myself.
I believe all this makes for a rich and varied culture, which from my point of view is one of the most valued assets of a translator, who has to decide with professional accuracy on linguistic solutions deriving from a large network of intellectual connections.
The quality of my work has often been highlighted by the final users or the original producers of my translated texts, and I am widely known in my country as a fine, reliable, translator and interpreter.
