I am a Brazilian Portuguese native speaker who lives in Germany and has native-like competence in English and German.
I graduated in Portuguese and English Language and Literature (UNIOESTE/Brazil) and have a M.A. degree in English Language and Culture with emphasis on Linguistics (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany). I have worked as an English/German/Portuguese teacher both in Brazil and in Germany for over 10 years, and I have gathered experience in translating/interpreting as a second job during all this time as well. During the last 2 years, I have been working mostly as a translator/interpreter and the main areas I specialized in are Linguistics, Literature, Education, Sociology, Arts, Public Relations, Marketing and Tourism, but I often work on Electrical and Mechanical Engineering translations too.
I am a realiable translator, a thorough learner, open for critics and constructive discussions and can work very well with proofreaders, Project and Quality Managers.
