ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I'M ASHLEY PIEKARSKI

A Spanish – English (USA native) translator, an interpreter, a multicultural liaison, an editor and bilingual communications professional. I have dedicated my life to interpreting others to help with linguistic and cultural differences, and will eagerly continue to do so.

I now reside in the states, but have lived in Spain for 5 years, and in Mexico for almost a year.

"All meanings, we know, depend on the key of interpretation" -George Eliot

 

What I can do

Translation
Spanish to English translations are the projects I’m most often requested to work on.

My strength is definitely creating a fluid final text that is extremely representative of the original, by deconstructing each phrase, paragraph, and piece and reconstructing it appropriately as a whole. I'm able to do this because I'm not only a linguist, but also a communication professional (both by university degree and experience).

As an international and business-minded person, I will take great care to make your translation well received by its audience.

My specialty areas are marketing, advertising, tourism, and business law (contracts, participation conditions and the sort).
Interpreting
Editing & Proofreading
Website Translation & English SEO Optimization
Content Creation

My Methodology

It is of extreme importance to me to follow professional practices and expectations of the industry.

  • none Briefing before start of project, continuous communication throughout, and feedback/correction period after 
  • none Commitment to professionalism, timeliness, accuracy, and cohesive flow of text
  • none Build long-term relationships whenever possible
  • none Adherence to American Translators Association (ATA) Code of Ethics and Professional Practice, click here for more detials

MY SKILLS LEVEL

  • htmlSpanish to English translation100%
  • css3English writing100%
  • jquerySpanish writing95%
  • ptsWeb & online marketing translation (SEO & SEM)95%
Direct translation of HTML files. Just send me your HTML and I will send you back translated HTML. You don’t have to worry about the logistics of downloading all of the English or Spanish source text to word documents and then re-uploading it and re-formatting links. It will all be properly placed per the original HTML files. Easy, and without a doubt a cost and time saver.

SEO helps position your content at the top of Google and other search engine page results. I do this by the proper selection and placement of keywords and key phrases in English or Spanish per your translation needs.

Infographics are visual representations of information that make it eye-catching, relatable and understandable. I can create infographics for you in both Spanish and English, as well as translate already made infographics.
