I’m Jillian Kostora da Silva, professional translator and owner of JK Spanish & Portuguese Translation Services since 2012. I’ve been working with languages for over 15 years and have loved every minute of it.

English is my native language and I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. I possess a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish & History from Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY, where I graduated Cum Laude. I continued my studies, and acheived a certificate in Dreamweaver/Flash web design from Comfamiliar Risaralda in Pereira, Risaralda, Colombia, and a Specialized Certificate in Translation (Spa-Eng) at the University of California San Diego Extension in the La Jolla area of San Diego, CA. As well as being a member of the ATA, I am a volunteer member of the Mohawk Valley Latino Association (MVLA) in Utica, NY where I volunteer my services as a translator.
