ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE

My name is María Fernanda Pignataro and I am a Certified English to Spanish Translator living in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

With 20 years’ experience in translation, my areas of expertise are medicine, pharmaceutical products and health care in general.

Born (1966) and raised in Buenos Aires, I graduated from Universidad del Salvador in 1990 with a Bachelor’s degree in English Translation. I spent the first years of my career translating several kinds of areas: technical documents on engineering, naval engineering, commercial papers, personal documentation and others. I also worked in criminal courts as an interpreter in oral trials and in commercial courts as a translator for two years.

I started translating medicine and pharmaceuticals in 2000, and I have been working almost exclusively in these areas ever since. My clients are mostly international pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations (CRO), but I also work for international translation agencies.
