Having graduated in German translation, I began working in a Portuguese translation office as an in-house translator as well as project manager. In order to widen my knowledge I have started working as a freelance translator in October 2004 for offices in Spain, Germany, USA, Brazil and Portugal.
I have good command of CAT tools such as Trados Studio, Across (Standalone Version) and some experience with MemoQ.

Through the course of my career, I have been attending conferences and workshops as well as online courses and webinars, in order to keep myself up-to-date to technological advances, marketing issues and key areas of expertise.

The strong qualities I believe to possess are organisation, responsability, pontuality, realiability, dedication, self-confidence.

To fulfil the translation assignments I possess a desktop with the following characteristics:
Intel core-i5, , Ram 4.0 Gb, HD 500 Gb
Windows 7, MS Office 2007, Adobe Acrobat, Panda antivirus, Mozilla Thunderbird
SDL Trados Studio 2009 and 2014, Transit XV, Across Standalone Edition, MemoQ
Broad band ADSL Internet connection

Enclosed is my curriculum vitae which will give you further details of my career to date.
