    To make it simple, I have a 4 year-long experience in translation & technical writing, a 4-year long experience in teaching and a 6-year long experience in import/export coordination, administration & customer service. In 2005, after working in international environments (I have a degree in Applied Languages & Business) for 4 years in Paris, France, I made the big leap and left Europe for Asia (Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka). First, I worked as a teacher in Malaysa (I have a B.A. in French as a Foreign Language), travelled for a while across India, worked two years as a teacher in Sri Lanka and became a translator for the movie industry namely Bollywood in Mumbai, India. It was unplanned, truly unexpected and very instructive culturally speaking ; in a nutshell, the experience of a lifetime. Back to France since 2009 where I worked first as a teacher and then as a project coordinator, I have been volunteering being a translator for FORUM through the United Nations Volunteer programme. This position helps me to build a real understanding of development issues and improve my skills in translation including identifying and understanding key arguments, building glossaries and developing an eye for detail.  less

    I have a master's degree in computer science, and I speak fluent English. I've written technical and non technical documents, from published articles to blog entries in both languages: English and Spanish. My career has forced me to translate multiple articles from one language to another in both ways, and I consider myself fully qualified to write and translate any kind of document from English to Spanish and vice versa. Also I studied several courses of creative writing where I created mostly short stories. I work as programming teacher in Mexico.  less
