I was born in Argentina, studied English since I was 7 years old, and after finishing my High School Bachelorship I took the 5 years’ courses for translatorship at the Faculty of Law of the National University of Buenos Aires (UBA) in March 1981.
I worked in Argentina as a part-time freelance translator since before my graduation, and at the same time working for various companies especially on law and economic subjects, which together with my accounting background helped me get a good experience on these subjects, although throughout all these years the range of subjects dealt with has been notably broadened.
I then started working on translation full-time getting experience on patents translation on pharmacy, genetics, chemical, oil and gas, telecommunications, health care, medicine.
Presently and since five years ago I am also working in the translation of medical and pharmaceutical texts such as CIOMS, Informed Consents, Clinical Trials and Protocols.

Experience and Strong Points

I have translated over a million words about the following fields in the last few years:

  • Pharmaceutical Patents

  • Informed Consents

  • Medicine

  • CIOMs

  • Oil and Gas Material

  • Technical data and instructions for machinery

  • Biotechnology

  • Telecommunications

  • Clinical Trials

  • Computing Networks

  • Building Manuals

  • Training Material

  • General Operator and Instruction Manuals

  • Management of health and working environments

  • Health and Safety

  • Human Resources

  • Geotechnical data

  • Products Certificates

From this experience I know what matters most to the customer: in particular word-perfect accuracy and working to (sometimes very tight) deadlines. This is my strictly commitment.
