Welcome to my profile!

I am a native Spanish translator with over 8 years of translation experience.

I hold a BA in Legal Translation and a Master's Degree in Translation (with an specialization in Legal & Financial translation) from University of Geneva's School of Translation and Interpretation (FTI), after being awarded a scholarship by the Swiss Government.

I also hold a BSc in Business and in addition to my freelance activity as translator, I worked for over 10 years in the banking industry (Lloyds TSB Bank plc), in various departments and holding different positions. I also worked as Lloyds TSB's in-house translator thus combining translation tasks with my other duties and responsibilities.

I am a Sworn Translator accredited by the Supreme Court of Justice of Uruguay and I am also a member of the Uruguayan Translators Association (CTPU).        

My fields of expertise are legal, business and financial translations, although I work in many other fields such as marketing, IT, and web content, medical, educational material, social sciences, subtitling, among others.
