Bio
I am a freelance translator and proof-reader of Portuguese to English, my native language. I grew up in the UK, and after spending several years living and working in Italy, I moved to Brazil in 1982, to accompany my Brazilian husband, who translates from English into Brazilian Portuguese. I specialise in academic and scientific text, linguistics, semantics, medicine, homeopathy, veterinary surgery, farming, horse studies, social sciences, psychology, IT, tourism, Engineering and commercial text, among others. I have experience in dictionary copy-editing and also transcribing and subtitles. I have a BSc in Psychology, an MA in English Language and a PhD in English Language, and have completed a course for IT Technician and Computer programming. I have 20 years of experience as a freelance and in-house translator, plus many years of experience teaching advanced-level and Business English.
