I’m Maria Hernandez, a professional translator with over ten years of experience. I did a bachelor’s in Linguistics from UCLA and an MA in Translation & Interpreting from the University of Illinois. I’m ATA-certified.
In my career, I have worked for various translation agencies (TransPerfect, Translation AZ) and have translated documents into multiple languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese. Also, I have extensive experience in website (technical and generic) localization, video subtitling, and audio transcription.
As an acknowledged expert in language translation, I have provided consultation and training services to businesses and organizations (Amgen, GM, FIS) to improve their translation processes. I have helped them create multilingual content that speaks directly to their target audience, enabling them to reach new markets and grow their business.
My proven expertise in language translation has been recognized through numerous publications. My articles to industry publications, such as the ATA Chronicle and MultiLingual Magazine, share my insights and knowledge on translation trends and emerging best practices.
