Hi. I’m Allison Fritz,

an ATA-certified Spanish-to-English translator with 10 years of experience supporting international development and relief organizations by providing accurate, informed, reader-friendly translations.

I have been a full-time freelance Spanish-to-English translator since 2011. 

After graduating from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Spanish and completing an internship with the Migration, Remittances and Development Program at the Inter-American Dialogue, I moved to Buenos Aires to pursue a master’s degree in rural sociology. 

In my classes on agricultural economics, smallholder farming and nutrition policy, I began to discover my calling: to support development and relief organizations by providing accurate, informed, reader-friendly translations.

I went on to earn a four-year professional degree in translation from the Universidad del Museo Social Argentino and to cut my teeth as a translator working for a large private charitable foundation that supports education and public safety initiatives throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Over the years, I have helped public, private and non-profit organizations develop, monitor and evaluate their projects in LAC. Whether I’m translating a proposal for funding, a press release or a participant satisfaction survey, I approach each assignment as an opportunity to make a positive impact. And with certified language skills, subject matter knowledge, and over ten years of academic and professional experience in Latin America, my clients can count on me to deliver nuanced translations.

My mission is to provide polished translations that help changemakers move the needle on their issues they are most passionate about.

How can I help you?


This is how I can help you break through the language barrier and do more life-changing work in Latin America:

Let’s set up a 30-minute virtual meeting to get to know each other. You can tell me about your project and your needs, and I can use that information to offer you a tailored solution.
