    I am originally from the U.S. but I was raised in the Republic of Panama. I gained not only complete fluency in both languages because of this, but cultural awareness as well. I am great at being able to translate from either English to Spanish or Spanish to English. The reason for this is that I don't just translate the literal word to word, but the actual cultural meaning and the social significance behind what is truly being said. I also have added experience in medical transcription, which allows me to translate difficult medical terminology when needed. It also allows me to correct misspelled medications, dosages, and other details which are crucial for successful documentation of patient care. As far as my personal skills, I am great at working alone as well as in a team setting. I am extremely focused, self-motivated, and I am always looking for ways to go above and beyond the task that has been assigned to me. I know how to lead as well as take direction. I am very flexible, detail-oriented, and bring a very positive attitude with me in everything that I do. I always treat everyone with courtesy and respect. Finally, I have the understanding that, no matter what the job is, it's a team effort to reach success. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to working with you and the honor of helping you reach your goals.  less
