Jenny Stillo Bio

Professional translator Jenny Stillo had the unique advantage of growing up in Honduras with Spanish as her native language, then immersing herself in English as she studied, worked, married, raised her family and ran a business in the United States for three decades. With such ease and proficiency in both languages, Jenny can translate English to Spanish and Spanish to English without losing the nuances of each communication.

A graduate of Arizona State University’s Translation Certificate Program with more than 20 years of professional translating experience, Jenny specializes in advertising, business and finance, marketing, medical, technical manuals, press releases and school district reports. She belongs to the American Translators Association and the Colorado Translators Association.

As a young woman, Jenny moved from Honduras to the United States to study, and she earned a BA in business administration with an accounting minor from Western State Colorado University. After marrying photographer Tom Stillo, she ran the family’s successful business, taught Spanish and English, translated documents and interpreted for the school district and local businesses over almost 30 years.

In the 1990s, Jenny took time to train in cross-country skiing and was Honduras’ sole Olympic athlete in the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics.

With both of her children grown, she returned to school in 2011 to complete the professional translation program at Arizona State University. Her specialty training, easy manner and deep familiarity with both Spanish and English make her a particularly adept translator.
