In memoriam: Carlos Rivarola

Carlos Rivarola of Spanish ExpressYesterday we received the sad news that Carlos Rivarola has passed away.

Carlos and I first met in Boston, almost 20 years ago. We were working together on a large translation project. As a newbie to the translation business, I remember being thoroughly impressed by the fact that Carlos had already 10+ years of translation experience under his belt, had lived in Europe and Latin America, and had big plans for the future.

And he wasn't one to procrastinate: Soon afterward, he left for Argentina to start his own company, Spanish Express. Even back then, Carlos had the same scraggly beard as in the picture :-)

In the years since then, it has been a joy working with him and the rest of the Spanish Express team. Throughout this time, I have always appreciated Carlos' level head, his fairness, and his sense of humor. Basically, he was just a really nice person, and we are deeply saddened by the loss of our trusted colleague.

We miss you, Carlos!

    I was also greatly saddened to hear the news of Carlos' passing. Carlos was a kind, hard-working and talented professional, and a job to work with. We've always enjoyed collaborating with the Spanish Express team, as they are a direct reflection of his drive and dedication to our industry.
    Our thoughts are with Carlos' family and friends, and with the team at Spanish Express.
