Hello!

My name is Kelsey and I believe every translation assignment is unique. I provide quality scientific translations to connect new information across the globe.

DE, ES > EN

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area with a passion for learning and exploring. I finished my years in school with bachelor’s degrees in German and environmental engineering from San Diego State University and a Master’s degree in biomedical translation from the Menéndez Pelayo International University in Spain. I have lived and worked in the US, Germany, Spain, Turkey and Argentina and have a vast understanding of the languages and cultures of each of these places I grew to call home.

My professional experience spans from laboratory research on wastewater and nanoparticles for the USDA to translating websites for European businesses into my native English, subtitling German and Argentine TV shows and performing daily news monitoring in the Swiss and Spanish oil & gas industry. My expertise and passion are far reaching, from technical to cinema. If you have a project in my language combinations, I would love to hear about it to determine if my services are the best fit for you. If your project is outside my expertise, I will gladly pass along your project to colleagues I know to be experts in the field.
