My Training

Master of Arts in Bilingual Translation (University of Westminster), London, UK (2004): "Introduction to Interpreting Skills" class (enabling foreign visitors and residents to access health, legal and social services provision; i.e. practical and theoretical training in exposure to a variety of practical situations faced by immigrant Spanish speakers in the UK.

Since 2006 I have done a variety of telephone interpreting assignments via a private UK provider with Spanish speakers from Cuba, Bolivia, Chile, Spain, and Argentina in the United Kingdom. Interlocutors' background was very varied, ranging from individuals with low educational standards to those highly educated and fully knowledeable of their entitlements.

My Studio Equipment

Basic microphone + headphones set used for Skype sessions.

AVSAudio Editor for recording messages.

Additional Skills

Due to undergraduate degree in science plus career in past 5+ years as freelance translator I am very familiar and not afraid of long scientific words in both English and Spanish.

One of my previous jobs before embarking on a freelance career as a Spanish linguist was proofreading articles in a veterinary journal with lots of Greek and Latin scientific names of diseases, syndromes, and other analytical words.

I also worked in an export department of a manufacturing company where I spoke with overseas clients whose lack of English gave many an occassion of confusion, mirth, mimmicking, and headache.

As a rule of thumb, if the project contains difficult terms to pronounce, its subject matter being "serious" rather than "jazzy and cool" think of me!
