Editor notes

Although the Translation Introductory Studies of the Universidad de Puerto Rico are presented only as a familiarization of the student with the translation profession, it also enables him to master written and spoken word in Spanish and English, and it is actually more than just an introduction. The student that completes this course and that is capable of learning some possibly needed aspects of the profession by himself will be prepared enough to work as a translator.
