Spanish/English Translator & Financial Analyst

United States - Tests: 3

I am a diligent, dependable, self-starter with significant bilingual experience in the field of business! I am new to Odesk, but definitely not new to translating, business, or freelancing! I just returned from a year of living and working in the Dominican Republic as a financial analyst for a Dominican organization. The position required me to interpret and translate for coworkers, customers, and visitors. Previously, I worked full-time in the U.S. as a Spanish-English Consultant for a data entry project commissioned by the Puerto Rican Government. Before that, I worked as an assistant accountant in Panama City, Panama, and was again often asked to provide translation and interpreting help for coworkers. In addition, I have been asked to interpret and translate for events, including the Marketplace Revolution in Chicago, IL November 2012--and during a mission trip in rural Panama during July 2011.
