Just at some background information, during the time I used to study in Georgia State University, I had the great opportunity to work so Inlingua as ALTA language services as Spanish Instructor and Spanish tester respectively. After receiving my certification from GSU in 2000, I was then employed with Strongwater & Associates as a “Legal Liaison” in the Colombian Consulate. During that time, my duties included but were not limited to the following: translation English documents and report into the Spanish language. I also served as an interpreter between the Attorney of the firm and the Consul. In addition to all of the before mentioned duties, I also visited alongside the Consul different penitentiaries and assisted in interviews with the Colombian inmates. I assisted the Colombian community in regards to different international situations. I attended conferences as well as meetings on behalf of the General Consul to different places such as the Immigration dept., Kennesaw University, Consulate of Argentina, Consulate of Mexico, Atlanta City Hall, etc.
Also, I have had the opportunity to work as Medical Interpreter for other company with extensive experience. As Medical Interpreter, I had the opportunity to interpreter English/Spanish between patients and doctor in medical appointments in Northside Hospital, Piedmont Hospital, Saint Joseph Hospital, Plastikos Plastic Surgery Center, etc.
Even though, in my three last jobs I have been developed some other different activities, they have been always related some how to the translation/Interpretation issues. Besides, I have made several translations an interpretation projects as well for freelance.
Lately, I used to be employed as a paralegal at Hernan, Taylor and Lee, LLP, which is firm that specializes in the following fields: criminal, civil litigation, family, personal injury and workers’ compensation. Although I enjoy learning and developing legal skills, I still have a personal passion of developing my translation/Interpretation skills.
