Why choose me?

Hello! I’m Selene. I help community-serving industries to connect with their Spanish-speaking audience. See How I Can Help You.

I can help you break down the barriers that prevent communication by solving your linguistic needs so that you can focus on what you know best.

Who am I?

My name is Selene Desiré Bovo. I am a Literary and Technical-Scientific Spanish Translator based in Argentina (GMT-3). I am a member of the Association of Translators of the Province of Santa Fe, 2nd District (Argentina).

I have over 11 years’ experience as a translator, and I have translated over 4,000,000 Selene_Desire_Bovowords. I have worked extensively in the areas of healthcare and education. I also love history… and soccer!

I am passionate about languages, and I love learning about different cultures and their history. That is why I enjoy doing any necessary research in order to deliver the best quality ─translations which reflect the original text not only accurately, but also clearly.

Here are some examples of the type of projects I have worked in:

  • Translation of hospital patient education materials, services and recommendations; clinical studies and informed consent forms; health insurances’ programs, eligibility requirements, handbooks, and newsletters; apps providing health information; etc.
  • Translation of academic material related to the History Degree at the National University of Rosario.
  • I have also translated materials to be used in US schools, especially for teachers.

I have also performed translations in other areas, such as corporate and finances, government, market research, journalism, and software.

Besides, I make the most of opportunities to improve my knowledge of the languages and areas I work with, translation methods, and available tools and resources, in order to stay updated and enhance my productivity. For example:

  • 2023. Correcting Texts in Spanish. María Ester Capurro, Sworn Translator. Organized by juanmacarlupu.com.
  • 2022. Quality Control: everything a professional translator needs to know. Lorena Roqué, Sworn Translator. Association of Translators of the Province of Santa Fe, 1st District.
  • 2021. Introduction to Medical Translation. Daniela Levin Degrange, Translator. Association of Translators of the Province of Santa Fe, 1st District.

A translator is always trying to extend his knowledge and improve his means of expression; he is always pursuing facts and words.
