    English / Spanish Translator and Editor/Proofreader

    Argentina - Last active: 20 hours ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a professional Translator and Editor/Proofreader from Cordoba, Argentina with several years of experience. I am bilingual in Spanish, Polish and English and I can perform accurate translations between any of these languages.I have good computer skills. I have a degree in Clinical Laboratory Technician and a Bachelor degree in Biology. I have good skills in mathematics I love writing and good written texts. A true passion that I apply to my work. Whether translating, editing or proofreading a text I feel the need to make that text as good as possible. I believe translating is not just a mechanical process. There is a beauty in it. In finding that perfect way in which everything falls into place and you manage to express what the original text meant without limiting or crippling that meaning while still conserving the shape, the style and the tone of that original message. Do not underestimate the importance of this. Whether the task at hand is a website or a book, the quality of the text is everything. In any case you are trying to reach an audience, and for that you will need the best translation possible. Otherwise you will risk losing that audience in the market. Among my areas of expertise: • Engineering • Architecture • IT • Science • Medicine • Economics • Marketing • Legal texts • Websites • Letters • Articles • Technical documentation • Books • Movie scripts I am looking forward to working with you.
