Writing, language and publication support for academics
Zure lantoki barruko eta kanpoko komunikazioak itzuliko ditut espainieratik ingelesera eta frantsesetik ingelesera.
Akademietako agiriak itzuli ditut argitaratzeko, laburpenak hitzaldietarako, txostenak, kalitatearen eskuliburuak eta beste dokumentu batzuk erakundeentzat (Giza Baliabideetako dokumentazioa, segurtasun eskuliburuak, prozedurak), item berriak teknologian eta kultur erakundeetan, web orriak heziketan eta industrian, urteko txostenak, memoriak, inbertitzaileentzako materiala, merkataritzako katalogoak, CV aurkezteko eskutitza, hartzaile orokorrentzako artikuluak eta gidoiak.
Hona hemen azken aldian egindako itzulpen lan batzuk. Informazio gehiago eskuratzeko edo nire lanaren gaineko erreferentziak ikusteko, mesedez, jo harremanetarako orrira.

"It was great working with Wendy because she understood what we wanted to say. She is totally proficent in Spanish and English and she can give us the best advice in either language. At university we have to publish in English if we want to be read, but one of the hardest things to do is to convey all the ideas we have in an academically proper language. Sometimes our ideas are not well written because we do not have them clear in our minds, so translating is a tool for thinking and Wendy makes sure the language (as well as the ideas) flow in a smooth way. She always asks the questions that make not only your article but your ideas go further..." —Asunción Martínez Arbelaiz, University Studies Abroad Consortium
