Qualifications and experience
Born in Uruguay in 1966, I hold a degree in English<>Spanish Translation from the University of Uruguay in 1989.  
In 1990, I moved to Italy, where I have been living and working ever since.
After holding several jobs as secretary, executive secretary, and import/export associate, in 1997 I finally achieved my long-cherished dream to live on my profession.  In fact, I opened a Translation Agency which I successfully ran until 2003. During this period, I entered the technical translation world by translating user’s manuals as well as technical and commercial documentation for companies in several industries (refrigeration, electronic controls, foodservice equipment, eyewear).  
From 2003 to 2013 I worked for a Johnson & Johnson Company near Rome and was mainly involved with quality systems and medical devices.
Then, in May 2013 both work and personal reasons induced me to return to the freelance translating life, specializing in medical translation (clinical trials).
My English-into-Italian translation of  “The Big Book on the Lap-Band” is currently pending publication with Babelcube.
