Bio
I am a fully qualified member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) and a translator of Brazilian Portuguese to English with over 18 years experience. I have an extensive portfolio of translations (1.5 million words and counting) that includes published books on art and art criticism, children’s literature, exhibition catalogues, as well as websites, advertising campaigns and academic articles in fields covering literature, poetry, anthropology, ergonomics, information science, pedagogy and cultural and educational history.

I have the imagination and the ability to think creatively to solve translational problems - be they factual or linguistic, and I have the intellectual curiosity and attention to detail that is necessary to produce and deliver high quality work to deadline.

Having spent nearly 17 years living and working in Brazil, and having completed my doctoral thesis entitled "Translating Brazilian Poetry: A Blueprint for a Dissenting Canon and Cross-Cultural Anthology", I returned to the UK 8 years ago, and continue to work as a freelance translator and for Translators without Borders on a voluntary basis.

I am a full time freelance translator, and while my average output is 3000 words per day,I am able to deliver up to 5000 words a day for urgent projects. I am also available to work over weekends and bank holidays, however, this may incur a small premium.

For a sample of my private clients, and for agencies I work for, please take a look at my website on www.orbitalngua.com.
