English to Spanish Translation Professional Diego Aguirre
Member since May 18, 2013
Hey, here's a bit about me. I was born and raised in Colombia. At the age of 11 my mother migrated to the United States and brought me along to sunny Miami, FL. Constantly traveling between Miami and Colombia (as well as frequently visiting my father in Spain) I became a child of two cultures, mastering both english and spanish in written and spoken form.
From my adolescence and throughout my adult life, I became the official translator in my local congregation, translating entire sermons, preachings and seminars... all live, all simultaneously. In addition, I became the go-to guy for any official documentation that needed translating. This all gave me an acute skill for interpreting from a spanish-speaking audience to an english-speaking audience, and vice-versa, in almost real time, and with tremendous faithfulness to the source.
I am also a public speaker in my community, speaking on prevention topics, such as drugs, alcohol, and sexual risks, to high and middle schools across Miami-Dade County. I have delivered full curriculums and motivational talks to hundreds of youth and parents, in both english and spanish (sometimes both at the same time... someone hand me a cup of water!)
I fancy myself an easy-going guy who brings professionalism to the table and is an all-around great person to work with. Looking forward to our work together!
