Summary of Language Experience

English (US) to Spanish (South America)

Juan has been translating from English into his native Spanish for +25 years. Despite living in South America, European Spanish presents no difficulty to him, and he is familiar with several variants of Spanish (localization). He studied English in the US for three months (College and homestay experience 1981) and has perfected his English language skills since then. He travels to Europe and to the USA on a regular basis. His broad cultural background, detailed approach and thorough study allow him handle almost any text with proficiency.

Italian to Spanish (South America)

While working as a lawyer he closed some deals for Latin America. Mastering Italian made the difference.
