Abel Cruz Agency Contractor

Spanish editing and translation

United States

I have succesfully completed a degree in Spanish (a hybrid career: half literature and half linguistics). Currenltly, I am working towards a degree in linguistics. Moreover, I have been working as a Spanish editor for more than four years. Overall, I am a native speaker. My strongest skills in the language are: phonetics, phonology, applied linguistics, history of the Spanish language, and syntax. And since I have been working as an editor for four years, I have great experience in finding any grammatical problem (at the syntactic, pragmatic, and sociopragmatic level) in the Spanish language.
