Greetings and welcome to The Professional Linguist!
My name is Jose L. Varela-Ibarra, CEO and Founder of Spanish Shield. From the nation's heartland, I serve clients from coast to coast, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world.
My primary languages are Spanish and English. I work for law firms, small and large businesses, organizations, government offices, diplomats, translation agencies, authors, publishers, and individual clients.
I also have access to a network of professional interpreters, translators, trainers, coaches, and writers who can handle your projects in all major languages and most of the languages spoken by smaller population groups.
I write poetry, non-fiction, research articles, blog posts, and marketing content in both English and Spanish.
A US Courts Certified interpreter, translator, language services advocate for 30+ years, I am a member of NAJIT, MLA, and ATA, where I serve in the Translation Company Division's Leadership Council.
To relax, I love to create websites, infographics, and book covers. I practice tai chi chih, and I look to both sides before crossing the street.
Our offices are closed due to the pandemic, but we invite you
to visit us virtually. We are open 24/7.
