Fausto Navarro

I am proficient in three languages (Spanish, English and French) thanks to having travelled and lived abroad for most of my childhood. My training by the translation agency Parámetro S.L. provided me with a solid experience as a professional technical translator and project manager, particularly for companies in the telecommunications and motor vehicle industries. I then evolved naturally towards the freelance translation world.

Since September 2010, I have implemented the translation software Trados Studio 2009 which allows me to provide better prices, greater compatibility with formats other than Microsoft Office and shorter delivery times.
