I work as a literary translator for more than 10 years,
specializing in young adult and children’s books, but also in audiovisual
translation (subtitling) and transcreation.
My language pairs are 
English to European Portuguese.

I am always willing to improve my skills to become a
better professional in my field.

Although I work independently, I adapt well to a team environment.
