Spanish Translator Dr. Valentina’s educational background and past experience include both science and translation. She worked as an astrophysicist for fifteen years, specializing in the numerical modeling of star-forming regions. She authored or co-authored nearly one hundred research papers, developing a wide range of skills in the fields of mathematical methods, statistics, chemistry, data analysis, and programming.
Valentina has also been working as a freelance spanish translator for several years; her main specialization fields are medicine and pharmaceutics, toxicology and hazard communication, and intellectual property. One of her strengths as a translator is scrupulousness, as the physicist in her would never be satisfied until she fully understands what she translates; but she also cares passionately about language and believes that highly technical subjects require a surgical use of words and structures. Her experience as an official translator (“sworn translation-interpreter”, in the Spanish institutional jargon) has equipped her with a powerful toolkit to deal with hybrid documents combining technical and legal contents.
Valentina holds a MSc in Physics from the University of Pisa, Italy, a PhD in Astronomy from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and an MA in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Granada, Spain. She also completed two masters in medical translation at the University of Pisa, Italy, and the University Jaume I, in Spain. She is a sworn translator-interpreter for the English-Spanish pair authorized by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and a member of Tremédica (International Association of Translators and Editors in Medicine and Allied Sciences), Asetrad (Asociación Española de Traductores, Correctores e Intérpretes), and AITI (Associazione Italiana Traduttori e Interpreti).
