I am Sabina, freelance provider of language services, including translation and interpreting, in both English and Spanish. I work for market research companies – in the medical and the consumer fields – as well as business consulting firms.
I’m adding a free Language Q&A section to my website. I post the language-related questions clients often ask me, as they write reports and other business documents. Hope this will help everyone communicate better!
