They struggle to find the best equivalent to use in the translated version. They struggle to find the best equivalent to use in the translated version. 

A keen English-to-Spanish translator, Virginia graduated from the National University of Cordoba, Argentina. For 5 years, she has worked as a freelance translator in a variety of fields, such as journalism, literature, & entertainment. Throughout her professional career, she has learned that each client is unique &  goes to her with specific needs & expectations. Therefore, Virginia puts special emphasis on fluent communication to detect those expectations & to be able to offer them the exact product they had in mind.
