About me

I'm a full-time English to Spanish translator and interpreter since 2002. I was raised in Lima, Peru and my native language is Spanish. My specialization is Software and Game Localization. I can handle several formats like HTML, XML, PHP, ASP, FLASH, etc. I can also localize software including web-based and Windows Mobile, iPhone and Android applications!

Many projects consist in different kinds of files like Web, text, graphics, help files, software, etc. So I use several specialized tools to maintain the consistency of the terminology throughout the whole project, and also to assure the linguistic and technical quality of the final product. Additionally, your product will be localized for the specific market. That is, your product will be translated and adapted keeping in mind the cultural and linguistic characteristics of that public.

I am also an English and Spanish Interpreter in Peru, specialist in liaison and consecutive interpreting.

Member of the American Translators Association (ATA) and the Asociación de Traductores Profesionales del Perú (ATPP).

I can also proofread and edit previously translated documents and files. Keep in mind that I only work with professional translators, so I don't proofread machine-translation and I don't proofread translations done by non-professionals (I can tell the difference, trust me).

Training for translators and private companies on the use of CAT Tools, terminology management and QA services.
