I’m Tricia, a New York-based translator specializing in Spanish > English and Portuguese > English medical translation.
I started studying Spanish at the age of eleven and have been hooked on foreign languages and cultures since. I majored in Spanish and Anthropology at Smith College and spent my junior year studying in Costa Rica. I started studying Portuguese in college as well, and in 2008 I was awarded a Fulbright grant to do research related to HIV/AIDS in Brazil. It was in Rio de Janeiro that I was exposed to work in translation. This would be the happiest accident of my life, leading to a career that inspires me every day.
I earned a Certificate in Translation Studies from the University of Chicago Graham School in 2011, and I have worked hard to acquire expertise in medical and clinical trial translation. I have served as Assistant Administrator of the American Translators Association (ATA) Medical Division and as editor of the division’s quarterly newsletter. I earned ATA Certification from Spanish into English in 2017.
While building my business, I worked as a CAT Tools Specialist and jack-of-all-trades at a mid-size translation company in New York. Currently I rely on my experience and attention to detail in order to collaborate with a number of language service providers in the medical field, supporting critical drug development work by pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, and researchers based in Latin America and Europe.
