Strength Statement

Accurate and punctual translator English>Spanish<English with a proven track record of translating information for the community in online, print and multi-media formats.

Background

My professional background is in Business Administration and Teaching English as a Second Language in Ecuador and Canada.

I was born in Ecuador, South America, but since I was a child a got involved with English language. I found in English language a way to communicate and know new cultures and places.

I feel that words have power and can change people and communities' life around the world. This idea encouraged me to begin as a volunteer translator in 2009 with different organisations such as: Gospel Translations, The Rosetta Foundation and Translators without Borders, among others. At the moment, I am still translating for them and helping communities to get the information they need to be safe, get relief or save their lives.

I got my credentials and formal education in Specialised and Audiovisual translation in the universities of Vic in Spain, and Studi di Parma in Italy.
