AndreaI majored in both English Literature and English to Spanish Translation at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, where I also pursued nine out of the ten semesters needed to become an English high-school teacher.

After having successfully completed my internship at a private psychiatric clinic with flying colors, I worked as in-house translator at an online business news service provider, which enabled me to grasp the basics of Economics, Banking and Insurance terminology. Though interesting, I soon discovered that I didn't wish to work exclusively on these translation areas, so I left the company after a year and set out to specialize in two other fields that have fascinated me for as long as I can remember: Medicine and Pharmaceuticals.

I have been translating on a freelance basis for different pharmaceutical companies (both local and international), healthcare providers, NGOs and translation agencies in these fields ever since, and have built a solid base of satisfied clients who can attest to my professional quality.

I have also been an active member of the American Translators Association since 2008; and member of the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters, IAPTI, since its birth in September 2009.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need further information regarding my professional services.
