I am a Venezuelan researcher in languages and literature, as well as a Translator and writer/editor living the savage urban life of Caracas. I blog at Sacando la Lengua [es] about languages, literature and cultural interaction. I'm happy to be also a volunteer translator for Lingua (Global Voices in Spanish). I deeply believe in the uniqueness and importance of every culture and in the study of them as a mirror to our own.
