A BIT ABOUT THE COMPANY
Everything that has to do with cultures, words, and languages, we embrace.
The Story Behind the Logo
The initial logo showed the earth superimposed over a sun; a play on the director’s name, which is derived from the Latin words for light and earth. The logo has evolved to include people around the world to reflect our increased involvement in community development projects and a global focus on sustainability.
Best Business Practices
We care about the world we live in and we make every effort to make it a better place for everyone. We do so by limiting our use of paper products and energy. We choose non-contaminating means of transport whenever possible and reduce commuting time by favouring home-based businesses. We also give back to the community by offering 10+ hours a month of our time and expertise for causes that are close to our hearts. Finally, we encourage all our associates and suppliers to act with responsibility and take the lead in the areas of social justice and environmental sustainability.

A BIT ABOUT ME
I am a multilingual communication specialist originally from Uruguay, currently based in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. For the past 12 years, I’ve been offering independent English and Spanish language services. When the project requires it, I work with a pool of professionals to provide you with the best possible services.
Curious about my background?
In Montevideo, Uruguay, I attended an international language immersion school (German-English-Spanish). I later obtained a B.A. in Anthropological Studies at the Universidad Nacional de la República (UdelaR), majoring in symbolic systems, linguistics and visual arts. Thanks to a Fulbright Scholarship, I travelled to the United States to pursue a M.A. degree in Communication at Michigan State University, where I specialized in media, gender and cross-cultural communication.
After relocating to Vancouver, Canada, I earned a Ph.D. in Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia. My dissertation studied open source programs for academic publishing and higher education at an international level.
In addition to living in North and South America, my experiences traveling around the world and living in Europe (Italy and Germany), Asia (Malaysia) and Africa (Mozambique) helped me hone my other languages and cross-cultural communication skills.
