Bio
I was raised bilingually ( English and Dutch) and graduated (Baccalaureate A) from French high school in Portugal.

I speak Portuguese fluently, as I lived in Portugal (31 years) and Brazil (8 years.)
Having lived in Portugal and Brazil for a considerable time (31 and 8 years respectively), I am fluent in both European and South American forms of Portuguese.

French was the language of my higher education

I have taught English as a second language in a Swedish school and tutored many students in English and French.

Having worked in different sectors of the hospitality business (Airlines, International Country Club, Hotel business and Travel Agency/Consultant Business) for many years, I have constantly used my language skills.

My passion for languages is reflected in my translations in the form of contextual clarity and accuracy.
Having in-country experience and a good understanding of the cultural framework of the language is very helpful for producing clear and precise translations.
