Hi, I’m Paige!

I turn Spanish and Portuguese into English for a living. Check out my experience, then head to Projects to see my recent work.

About Me

I am a legal and community translator with experience as both a paralegal and an in-house translator and interpreter.

Personally, I enjoy translating (and reading) literature, chess, boxing, surfing, and exploring concepts in alternative agriculture.

I specialize in immigration law.
