Expert in technical translations since 2003. High quality translations, localization, proofreading, quality assessment, transcriptions and subtitling, among other services.

My specialization is on IT, Software, Telecommunications, although I feel comfortable working on other fields, as well.

Some of my most important translation projects include: 

- Apps for the insurace/banking market,

- IT (data management systems, ERP systems, business intelligence),

- Software Localization,

- Telecom material (Wired, wireless, mobile communications, VOIP, porting processes),

- Web sites,

- Company documentation, 

- Press Releases,

- Marketing brochures, 

- Quick reference guides,

- Technical specifications in RFPs.

- E-learning courses.

For the last 8 years my work experience has been in quality assessment, this includes tasks such as:

- General quality assessment in Spanish language,

- Review of new translators tests,

- Review of translations (an extensive variety of fields),

- Creation of glossaries and style guides.

I make use of CATs, such as SDL Trados Studio and Memsource, but I do not use Machine Translation.

Contact me, any time, so we can discuss your project in detail and how my skills can help you reach your communication goals.
