Cathy Vicente, a bilingual American who has lived in Ecuador for close to 20 years, has taken the plunge into working full-time as a translator and facilitator.
Cathy worked for many years in Cuenca teaching English, or managing English programs at various schools.
She branched out part-time to translating documents, and in early 2010 made that her full-time profession.
Cathy is a member of the national translators and interpreters association, Asociación de Traductores e Intérpretes del Ecuador (ATIEC).
All members of this professional organization must meet one of a list of qualifying requirements. This helps ensure a level of quality in all translating and interpreting done for clients by ATIEC members.
Cathy has done translation work for the University of Cuenca. She has also translated a series of children's books into English for LNS, a publishing company. She's translated documents for a lot of expats here in Cuenca as well.
Cathy works with individuals who need documents translated from Spanish to English. If you're buying a house or condo here in Cuenca, you'll need this service for your promesa de compraventa (if you have one) and your compraventa.
Cathy will also help you select appliances and furniture, and then negotiate the best price for them.
One service that should keep her busy for a while is translating Spanish websites into English for Cuenca's tourist trade businesses. If you've ever tried to read the English version of a Cuenca website, you know that Cathy's services are in need here!
Cathy charges $15 an hour for her translation and facilitation services. She also has a vehicle, especially handy if you need to sign documents outside of Cuenca. She charges another $2 per hour for travel in the car.
You can reach Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call her on her cell phone at 099860667. If you're calling from North America, it's 593 (9) 9860667.

I just want to thank you both soooo much for creating this web site. I am originally from Cuenca but moved to New York 11 years ago and have not being back since. My husband and I are planning on visiting Cuenca over the Summer and this web site has helped me a lot.
When I came to the US we still had the "sucre," the bus ride cost 1,000 sucres and a pack of trident gum would cost 3,000 sucres. I am very nervous to go back, but thanks to your web site I now know what to expect.
My husband is American and Captivating Cuenca has taught him a lot about what my great city has to offer, things that I had forgotten about myself! :)
Thank You both so much! I cannot wait to visit Cuenca!!
