Maria Gonzalez, M.A. English, M.A. ForLang
Native Spanish (ES) speaker in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain
"EN>ES Senior Freelance Linguist"
I’m thrilled to be a humanist in a knowledge-based global economy. After all, my academic background could only lead to that. My life has always been deeply influenced by the subjects I’ve studied, the books I’ve read, the languages I’ve learnt, the travels I’ve made, the movies I’ve watched…, which have built me both personally and professionally.

English to Spanish translation, proofreading and MTPE of, among others, legal, business, academic, political and religious texts. Writing and proofreading of a wide variety of texts in Spanish: academic papers, short stories, memoirs, speeches, business letters, restaurant menus and more. Spanish language consulting.
This is how I continue my learning in my area of expertise
Apart from what I learn by just translating everyday, I keep reading and reading… and then I read some more. That helps me absorb and retain specific terminology and lingo. Besides, I periodically take industry-specific training courses in areas such as legal translation.
I primarily rely on a number of state-of-the-art translation and quality assurance tools that boost my productivity while providing consistent translations. Besides, I perform thorough terminology research for the sake of accuracy — I particularly love that specific detective work. :)
