Brazilian lawyer with 25+ years' experience in translation, mostly in the legal field (contracts, decisions, decrees, legal opinions, acts, legal essays/articles, school transcripts, birth certificates, balance sheets, financial documents, etc.), having translated a substantial amount of financial documents submitted to the USCIS in visa proceedings (U.S.). I have also provided a great deal of services associated with the medical field (as an interpreter for insurance companies, assisting non-English-speaker patients; providing written translation of hospital/medical products specifications/instructions, medical reports, etc.), the media (as a translator for a business newspaper in the U.S.) and as a volunteer interpreter in personal growth workshops, and a volunteer translator at a spiritual community website, among others.

I have also assisted professionals, esp. lawyers in writing articles for international publications.

As a translator, I have worked both as an in-house and freelance translator, providing services to lawyers, companies, expats, and individuals in general, both in the U.S. and Brazil.
