Hi! My name is Natalia Steckel, and I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Let me tell you about my passion for the power of books.
Although my first language is Spanish, I have always liked English; in high school I immediately knew I was going to study translation. After graduation, I started working for various NGOs and non-profit organizations as a volunteer translator to practice my skills and gain experience. I quickly realized that I was doing much more than that; I was helping people. With that understanding, I approached my work from a different perspective; I started to see my translation skills as a way to help others communicate effectively, rather than merely as an exercise in self-improvement.
In 2014, I started working as a translator for Babelcube (www.babelcube.com) and I discovered how much I liked working with authors. It was an excellent opportunity to combine my passion for language with my love of literature. I enjoyed reading the original stories while using my translation skills to help authors reach a wider audience.
In 2015 I added one more skill set to this combination; I got a degree in copyediting so that I can now help authors improve the style and linguistic quality of their Spanish-language projects.
Below is a list of authors with whom I have worked:
Bryan Cohen and Jeremiah Jones
Helen Jane Rose
S. J. Scott
I hope to add your name to either list soon! Whether you’re launching a new title or expanding the sales potential for a book you’ve already published, Spanish-language readers represent an increasingly large market for your writing. You’ll find details about how we can work together under Translation Services or Editing Services.
