I believe that translation is not merely a fact of knowing two languages. Translation is a smooth transition of ideas, it's an interpretation-- it's a form of art that requires practice, dedication, and linguistic intelligence. Therefore I find it important to mention that I studied the art of Translation in many ways --my English Major, which allows me to perform valid Legal Translation in my country; Translation seminars both online and offline, which I always leave me with a sense of satisfaction at learning something new. That's the thing I love about languages-- you never really stop learning. New idioms pop up every day, specially since the invention of the Internet. 

I believe that working through Babelcube would give me, a technical translator, the opportunity to engage in the kind of translation I have enjoyed the most since starting my studies in this field, that is, literary translation. 

I have been a legal and technical translator for three years, freelance the first two and employed in a Medical company since 2015. Spanish is my native language, and I learned English after living most of my juvenile years in the US. I have also been studying Japanese, but I consider myself yet highly inexperienced to attempt any sort of translation from or into such a beautifully complicated language. 

As for minor details about myself, I'm 26 years-old, have worked as a teacher, interpreter and translator since I graduated from college in 2012. Reading, playing videogames, drawing with my tablet and something called "cosplay" are my main hobbies. 

I sign up in this page hoping to earn experience in a field I have left unexplored in order to focus on money-making and career-building tasks, but now that I have freed myself from that burden I'd like to try and find a writter willing to trust me with what I know is, for them, the equivalent of their precious child.
