ANTONI MAROTO, CT (EN-ES/CA)
💻 EN-ES/CA Certified Translator 💬 15+ Years Bridging Language Barriers
🌐 Serving LEP Catalan & Spanish Speakers ⚙️ Banking | Healthcare | Marketing
My name is Antoni Chaim Maroto, and I'm a freelance translator whose goal is to help companies connect with their Spanish and Catalan speaking customers.
Based in Salt Lake City since 2019. I've previously lived in another American city (Chicago), as well as Cork (Ireland), Barcelona (Catalonia), and A Coruña and Zaragoza (Spain). That allowed me to learn about the cultures and markets of these places and enrich my translation skills as these are not based solely on language proficiency.
These are my language pairs:
English → Spanish
English → Catalan
Catalan ↔ Spanish
I also translate non-technical content (e.g., certificates, diplomas, transcripts, vital records) into English.
My clients are primarily individuals and businesses from Andorra, Catalonia, Latin America, Spain, and the US. They come from the educational, financial, law, marketing, and medical sectors.
A lifelong love of communication and foreign languages got me started professionally in Spain's customer care sector in 2004. I worked for over ten years with banks and IT companies.
In 2010, I graduated with a licentiate degree in Translation & Interpretation from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. After that, I formed a partnership called BPM Traducciones to provide translation, interpretation, and language instruction services.
Love brought me to the US in 2016. Relocating helped me develop my freelance career, obtain the ATA Certification in the English into Spanish pair, and start my business AM Language Services to provide the following services:
While I believe that translation and localization are human processes, I also value how technology helps me produce work more precisely and efficiently. For instance, I process plain/formatted text with cloud-based computer-assisted translation software (CAT tools), such as Memsource, SDL Trados, and XTM. For non-editable files and graphics, I use Adobe Spark and PDFelement Pro. For audio/video files, I use the Infinity pedal with Transcribe.
Additionally, I provide on-site, non-certified interpretation services (consecutive and simultaneous) to law firms (e.g., depositions) and hospitals and clinics (e.g., workers' compensation).
In 2019, I spoke about my pro-bono work at the workshop "Interpretation & Translation – Gateways to Community Service & Network Engagement," which was organized by the Department of Modern Languages of DePaul University.
Feel free to reach out to me if you want to start a conversation and discuss your needs!
