About Me

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.

I am a legal and community translator with experience as both a paralegal and an in-house translator and interpreter. I also offer editing services for literature and academic works.

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

Work experience

I provide translation for a variety of documents relating to academic evaluations and business. I also work in development and research into expansion.

I specialize in immigration law. Documents that I translate regularly include: birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, divorce certificates, police reports, autopsy reports, court cases, background checks, school records, personal declarations, articles, and other forms of evidence as required. I have also interpreted for asylum interviews in front of immigration officials at USCIS offices under sworn oath.
