Paola Vottero - President
ATA Accredited Translator


In 1996 Paola was Accredited by the American Translators Association as a Professional Translator and was working full-time for a Boulder-based translation company. In 1999, she founded TrueSpanish to accommodate her desire to attend Graduate School, and to be true to her entrepreneurial spirit.


In 2001 she graduated with a Master’s Degree in English Literature and she was able to build a loyal client portfolio, which became bigger and stronger through the years. Paola was sought-after many Denver/Boulder companies as one of the top Translators in her field due to her accuracy, knowledge, attention to detail and timely deliveries.

Paola is a native of Argentina who has an extensive international exposure. She lived in the United States for 15 years, has traveled extensively through Europe, and now resides in Chile.


According to Paola, “A true translator is not the one who translates word by word or literally, but one who can capture the essence and the flavor of the language and can communicate it effectively and flawlessly”. It is precisely her 10 year experience as a Translator coupled with that world-wide understanding of peoples and cultures that makes her stand up from the rest.


Paola’s talents are multifarious: as a lover of words and philosophy, she has been reading Philosophy and writing since she was a teenager. She has written thousands of poems and studies exploring and questioning different aspects of life, and the topics of love, time and space, solitude, social injustice and human nature. She was Semi-Finalist in a National Library of Poetry’s contest with her poem “Metamorphosis”. In 2005 she launched a CD

collection of Poems about Time & Love.


True to the Latin motto “Mens Sana in Corpore Sano”, Paola has been swimming since she was a child, later run several 10 K races and a Half Marathon, then moved to into the Triathlon world, and now she runs and practices Ashtanga Yoga.
