Translation samples:

I look out for your interests. I make sure that you get the translation you need, to accomplish what you want. For example, one client came to me with a detailed description of every faucet, floor tile, and other feature of his house. It went on for 25 pages of small print. I told him translating this would run into the thousands of dollars, but I asked him what he needed the translation to do for him. He told me he needed it to prove that he was the owner of the house. I realized that could be done by translating the first half of the first page. Much less expensive, and it accomplished exactly what he needed.

I have officially translated everything from birth certificates for immigration (and emigration) to official translations into Spanish of documents for the (Obama) White House Spanish website for the Executive Office of the President. I know that every translation I do is an extremely important translation.

My focus is on serving direct clients who are looking for exactly the services they need. I am one of 73 Spanish translators in the entire U.S. certified in both directions by the ATA. Although I don't rule out working with agencies altogether, if you are looking for a run-of-the-mill translator operating at the low end of the market, that is not me. If you are a direct client looking for a translator dedicated to providing you with translations that will help you achieve your goals, please give me a call and let's get started! Thanks.
