Born in Spain to a Cuban-American mother who also happened to be an English teacher and Translator, Rubén started doing small interpreting gigs in his teens in Spain. He then enrolled in the Audiovisuals Communications program at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. After living in Turkey and Korea, Ruben made his way to Los Angeles to pursue his career in filmmaking. You could say his filmmaking career is critically acclaimed, but it hasn't been profitable enough to sustain him. Rubén has been translating and interpreting for the past 3 years. Among his biggest clients you can find SEIU (largest workers union in the country), LAUSD (2nd largest school district in the US) and KBS (Korea's Public Broadcaster). Rubén translating work includes a wide array of areas: legal, education, academic, content (drama and comedy), music, etc.

Summary of Language Experience

Spanish (South America) to English (US)

Doing business primarily in California, Ruben has adapted his Spanish to Latin American Spanish. It wasn't difficult since he grew up in a Cuban household in Spain with his grandparents, so he has always been able to transition from one dialect to the other. He has worked for 2 years for KBS translating Korean content from English to Latin American Spanish for the KBS World Latino cable channel.
