I am a Brazilian linguist from Brasília, Federal District, and a member of the Certified PRO Network. I started my career in 2012 developing translation services at the Brazilian Senate. Since 2019, I have been working as a full-time translator for agencies and clients worldwide, having translated and proofed more than 2 million words.

My parents used to be English teachers and during my childhood I lived in Yugoslavia for two years. I also spent one month in the UK, making close contact with British natives.

As a Brazilian native speaker and based on my experience abroad I can provide accurate translation services from English and Spanish into Brazilian Portuguese. My permanent commitment is to improve my skills in order to provide high-quality support to my customers.
