Edna's extensive translation experience began as a
freelance Portuguese translator in 1986. In 1991, she founded
Translation Plus, Inc., a company offering Portuguese translation services in over 100 world languages. It was while she was serving as Vice President of Operations and Head of the Portuguese Division of Translation Plus that Edna
determined that there was sufficient demand for English to Portuguese translation to allow her to create a dedicated company that focuses on her mother tongue.

Edna's background extends beyond Portuguese translation to presentation and instruction as well. She has taught courses in Portuguese translation and interpretation at NYU and Rutgers. Edna also has provided one-on-one
tutoring in Portuguese. Extremely involved in the American Translator Association, she founded the Portuguese Language Division of the ATA, has served on the board of directors, and currently works with the ATA's English into Portuguese Certification Program. In May 2007, she presented a workshop on becoming ATA certified at an international conference in Brazil.

In 2007, Edna received the ATA Portuguese Language Division's Mário Ferreira Award at the ATA’s 48th Annual Conference in San Francisco. 
Together with Portuguese translator Mário Ferreira, Edna was one of the founders of the Portuguese Language Division in 1987, and served as the
division’s administrator for several terms.
