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