Bio
Hello. Thank you for visiting my profile.

I am experienced in translation of business documents, contracts, laws, and regulations, as well as general matters.

I have an MBA in International Business Administration, with emphasis on the Brazilian market; I work full time in government regulation and policy-making in the energy field; I have a B.A. degree in both Economics and Spanish (conversation and literature) and studied for one semester at the Universidad de Barcelona.

I worked for 5 years in Brazil representing foreign investors, primarily in the energy sector, and spent one year as in-house translator for a private Brazilian law firm that specialized in foreign clients.

My English is American English. I place very high importance on correct grammar and punctuation because, if I translate it for you, I want the reader to understand it!

Partial list of my translations:

- Dozens of Brazilian laws and regulations over energy and the environment that affect the power industry, including numerous ANEEL "Resolucoes/Editais" and the "MAE" (Wholesale Market Electricity Market) Rules;
- Wholesale contracts between power generators and electricity distributors;
- Federal concession contracts to develop hydroelectric power-generating stations;
- Contracts creating a promotional business venture between Continental Airlines and American Express;
- Labor-union agreements;
- Numerous papers describing a medical research study into the spread of whooping cough (pertussis/tosse comprida);
- Employment contracts for the executive staff of a software company serving the banking industry;
- Bid tender documents related to the supply of military weapons;
- Job responsibilities for Brazilian workers on a U.S. horse farm;
- Lyrics/Letras de musica.
