NLS79 Spanish Translator

Center for Human Resource Research, Ohio State University

Years on the NLS team: 2000-present

Role: The NLSY79 is a bilingual survey. As new questions are added to the survey, it is my job to translate these from English to Spanish.

What innovations have I helped introduce to the NLS

The NLS has been around for a long time; I have only been a part of it for the past 15 years. In addition to the basic challenges that all translators face, the toughest is the legacy translation issue.

Why am I proud to be part of the NLS team

I am proud to be part of the NLS team because I feel like I am part of something positive and bigger.
