Before letting you all know how and why I became a translator, I would like to say thank you to Nova Marketing for giving us the resources to start this translation blog, to El Jefe for giving us so many ideas and direction in taking the first steps to write a blog and to El Profe, whom we admire and respect, for his encouragement to write about our passion. This would not be possible without your ideas and determination to create a space where we can be ourselves and where we can express, inform, educate, and serve those who appreciate our profession, whether translators and interpreters or not.
My journey as a translator began with my other passion —being a geek! From Sci-Fi movies and TV series to comic books and manga, from cartoons and anime to fantasy literature and video games, I have always had a passion for everything that can transport me into another realm. I guess most children are born being geeks and some leave that fantastic world at some point in their lives, except the Force was strong in me.
