    English-Spanish Translator

    Argentina - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello. I'm Santiago Rosales, a 25 years old college student from Argentina, currently studying a IT engineering career. I have 4 years working on translating many Android apps and websites. My main translation fields are technology, mobile, applications, games, websites, e-commerce sites, user guides, programming related documentation, geological papers, education and economy. Also I'm experienced with legal websites and documents. I'm highly communicative with my clients in order to provide the most accurate translation. With a 60 WPM typing rate I'm the most indicated when it involves projects with a very short timeframe. My average speed is above 900 translated words per hour, and training every day in order to increase my speed, while keeping the quality at the highest possible level. Update: Over the past year I've been involved in several hospital brochures and stock market books translations, along with engineering and safety handouts and slides. Also, I had a high responsibility managing content from 10 languages(Europe/Asia) for Polaroid projects. Which requires a higher attention to the detail and knowledge about formatting for each specific language.
