MY SERVICES

If you’ve landed here, you probably already know that:
In the United States, there are more than 40 million individuals who speak Spanish at home and seek, access, and use healthcare and education services.
But…

- Language barriers have been demonstrated to have adverse effects on patient and provider satisfaction, and on patient health outcomes. In the absence of culture-specific translations and due to stigma, these individuals may have difficulty describing their health conditions or symptoms, which often leads to misdiagnosis, medication errors and complications, and even death.

- English Language Learners (ELL), or emergent bilinguals, experience difficulties in understanding content due to the disproportionate relation between the language used in the classroom and the language of which they have full command. Besides, Spanish-speaking parents are not typically familiar with the U.S. educational system and have difficulty understanding their children’s performance. This impacts the quality of education, which in turn impacts the children’s future, and the school’s performance scores.

As you make efforts to improve language access in your services, you probably ask yourself many questions:

  1. How can I make my Spanish-speaking audience feel comfortable with my services?
  2. Do I really know my target audience?
  3. Are my services inclusive?
  4. Are my services compliant with language access policies?
  5. What type of services do I need? Translation, localization, quality assurance?
And so on.

But worry no more because I’m here to help you.

What do I do?

Translation

(I translate content from English into Spanish with a focus on an accurate representation of the source meaning.)

Localization

(I translate content while making it culturally specific to the target language and target culture.)

Transcreation

 (I translate and rewrite creative content in the target language while focusing on the emotional effect of the message rather than on the literal equivalence of the words.)

Editing

(I amend an original or translated text in order to enhance its spelling, grammar, and style.)

Revision

(I compare a translation to its source text in order to verify if no mistakes were made on the level of interpretation, spelling and grammar.)

Proofreading

(I amend an original or translated text in order to remove spelling or punctuation errors.)

MTPE

(I amend a text that was previously pre-translated by a machine translation engine.)

Subtitling

(I translate spoken video content to written text made to fit on a screen.)

SEO translations

 (I translate content while doing search engine optimization (SEO) keyword research in the target language and implementing these keyword results into the translation.)
