About Boris

Besides being a professional linguist with two masters degrees (one in Theology and Philosophy and one in Linguistics), I am a doctoral candidate in Sociology of Religion. I speak three languages fluently (Spanish, English, Pokomchi). I read and write fluently in Spanish, English, Pokomchi and Greek. I have extensive experience serving as a Spanish interpreter and tutor.

Besides having worked as a phone interpreter I have also, on countless occasions served as an interpreter and tutor both to individuals and groups. I have extensive transcultural experience and knowledge of both Mayan and Latin American cultural issues. As a translator, my field of expertise is in Biblical and non-Biblical religious literature. But I also have some experience translating material dealing with political, social, linguistic and anthropological issues.

I am an experienced soccer player, having practiced this sport for over 40 years, so am also very comfortable doing translation of soccer-related topics. In addition have trained many people in soccer during all those years. I trained several of my children who have played professional soccer and become soccer trainers at the college level.

My mother tongue is Spanish I know well the language but also as a native speaker I have insights into the Latinamerican culture.

I speak English fluently As an immigrant who learned English after coming to America, I know the challenges of learning a second language.

I am patient and friendly to work with. Contact me for private tutoring.
