Note to Finnish readers: Teen tieteellistä ja kaupallista käännöstyötä yksityisille, yrityksille ja yliopistoille [Suomi -> Englanti, Englanti -> Suomi, Espanja -> Englanti]. Asun osan vuodesta Suomessa ja osan Meksikossa ja toimin Internetin välityksellä. Otan vastaan myös toimeksiantoja yrityksiltä jotka haluavat suuntautua Meksikoon tai USA:n (valmistus Meksikossa). Bioenergialla on kovaa kysyntää. Toiminimeni on Global Trading Technologies - SL.  Käytä emailia: steveleg@gmail.comXXX (poista XXX se on robottispammareita varten).
