Bio
I was born in London. I graduated in Philosophy and English in 1977 and then spent many years as a teacher of English as Foreign language in Spain and Colombia, at the Universidad de Los Andes. I returned to London to do a Masters in Latin American studies and a Diploma in World Politics at the LSE. After another stint in South America I did a PGCE in TOEFL to adults I and then taught at King's College and South Bank University with particular emphasis on English for Academic Purposes. In 2005 I left England to live in Brazil, where I lived until October 2012 when I moved to Portugal. I am currently living in Lisbon. In 2008 I translated a book about the history of the island of Anchieta and this got me interested in doing more. In 2010 I enrolled at City University in London for distance learning course preparing for the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation. I took the three exams in January 2011 and received Distinction in all three (general, business and social science). Since then I have worked as a translator and editor, revising texts written in English, particularly for articles due to be submitted to academic journals. I do a lot of work for the Department of Food Technology at the University of Ceara in Brazil. I am happy working with both European and Brazilian Portuguese, and US and UK variants of English. I take my job very seriously and take time over my work. For this reason I prefer not to be given very tight deadlines, as I feel I cannot do my best work under these conditions.
