I am a freelance Spanish and French into English translator with over six years of translation experience. My lifelong fascination with languages—on top of my native US English, I have spoken Spanish since early childhood and French since high school—led me to pursue a B.A. in Spanish and French, and later a Masters in Translation, focusing on the Spanish>English language pair.
In addition to my studies, I have extensive experience studying, living and traveling abroad in both Spanish- and French-speaking countries. I spent two semesters abroad in Paris and Buenos Aires, completed internships at both French and Argentinean organizations, and taught English at a French high school for one year.
I also worked for nearly two years as a project coordinator at a translation agency, which has familiarized me with both sides of the translation industry.
My rates for translation, editing, proofreading, subtitling and transcription vary depending on each project's scope, nature and timeframe. In general, rates are provided per word for translation; per hour for editing and proofreading; per video minute for subtitling; and per audio minute for transcription.

Can you provide translations into Spanish and French?
No. In general, translators translate only into their native language. This ensures that the translated text sounds as idiomatic and natural as possible.
What services do you provide?
I provide translation, editing and subtitling services from Spanish and French into English. I also perform proofreading and transcription for English texts.
I do not provide interpretation services.

How quickly can you translate a text?
In general, I translate between 2,000-3,000 words per day. The range may vary based on the complexity of the source text, research, formatting, etc.
