About me


“The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between the lightning and the lightning bug.” - Mark Twain

Howdy, and welcome to my little corner of the internet!  My name is Jon De Jean, and I am a freelance Spanish <> English / English <> Spanish interpreter and translator.  As an independent professional committed to delivering the best quality service possible, I can offer you the personalized attention that you need to resolve communication difficulties with your Spanish-speaking clients.


I am a native of and currently living in the Mobile, Alabama metro area.  Being centrally located along the northern Gulf Coast (see map).  I am easily able to serve the coastal areas of Florida (western panhandle), Alabama, and Mississippi, as well as other communities located north of the coast (service area).

With over 15 years as a professional interpreter / translator (successfully completing more than 7,000 assignments, totaling more than 7,600 hours of actual face-to-face interpreting time), I have interpreting experience in the following fields:

I have enjoyed the opportunity to professionally interpret for a variety of people from Spanish-speaking countries the world over, which has exposed me to a broad range of accents and terminology.  An important part of that enjoyment has been that interpreting, at the end of the day, has always provided me with the intrinsic reward of knowing that I have assisted in a communication that has made a difference in someone's life, however great or small.


Thank you for your visit, and I look forward to assisting you with your interpreting and/or translating needs.
