About

My name is Paulette Romero, I own and operate Romero Communications, a translation, transcription and language services website which offers services locally and virtually to clients around the world.

Before starting Romero Communications, I was a legal secretary for eleven (11) years at various litigation law firms throughout New York City, a marketing & communications associate at, Snooth, Inc, a wine discovery website, and an office assistant at AP Wine Imports, a wine importer based in NYC.

After living and being raised in New York City for over thirty years, I moved to Armenia, Quindio, Colombia to become a freelance translator and teach English and have since moved to Medellín.  I have a CELTA qualification and currently teach at two private language institutes located in Medellín, Colombia. I previously taught English at SENA, a government run educational institute in Colombia.  In the future I hope to become an official translator and complete my graduate degree in the fields of translation, education or TESOL.
