Michelle's experience in translation stems from living and working in Ecuador for nearly 10 years. She met her Ecuadorian husband when she traveled there initially as a volunteer nurse. Translation work started when friends in town needed help adding English to menus and websites for their businesses. She truly enjoys playing with words along with the puzzle that translation often offers. It's less like work and more like fun for her!

Spanish (South America) to English (US)

Michelle translates from Spanish into her native English. Her clients benefit from her experience of having lived and worked in Ecuador for nearly 10 years.

They lived in an area frequented by tourists and so friends and neighbors routinely needed help adding English to things like menus and websites. Michelle’s clients also benefit from the fact that she is a bit of perfectionist. She is committed to translating accurately with the meaning kept intact. Due to experience in working as a nurse in both the U.S. and Ecuador, she also excels in medical translation work.

Summary of Industry Experience


Although Michelle has little experience in written translation in this area, she worked as a voluntary nurse in Ecuador for 1 1/2 years and also worked as a nurse in an emergency room setting in a Phoenix-area hospital where she used her Spanish for communication with the many Spanish speaking only patients that frequented her work. She also has nearly 10 years of experience living and working in Ecuador, which has given her an understanding of both how the language is used and the culture surrounding it. She loves the puzzle translation presents and will accurately translate your written word, keeping the tone and meaning intact.

The following sample translation uses text from a WebMD article, Los Cambios en el Estilo de Vida Reducen los Triglicéridos by Bill Hendrick on April 18, 2011.
