MORE ABOUT ME
I’m Julian, an ATA Certified Translator based in the U.S. working in the Spanish -> English language pair. I’ve been translating professionally for 8 years. I am passionate about language justice in the sociology, plant science and research communities.
My method is thorough and detailed. I read the entirety of the text for tone and style, make sure I can define all terms, and then begin the process of translating ideas first. Subtleties of expression are taken into account and transformed into the final product. My aim is for the final translation to read as if it were originally written in the target language.
