Translation

In today's internationally-oriented environment, transmitting your knowledge, expertise, craft or niche in clear and engaging English is an essential investment.

I take the message that you have carefully crafted in Spanish or French, and with the same care I recast it into English and make sure that the translation reads naturally and is appropriate for your audience and purpose.

My translation portfolio includes academic papers for publication, abstracts, presentations and discussant commentary for conferences, project reports, documents for institutions (HR documentation, procedures, student guides), news items for technology and cultural organizations, web pages for education and industry, cover letters, and general audience articles.

Here are some examples of translations, ranging across various fields. For my literary- and film-oriented translation work, please email me.

"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
