When you hire me to perform a specific language-related work, you are contracting:
1. Strong professional execution to an outcome beyond excellence.
2. World-class, scalable production work together with a punctilious, four-step quality assurance process.
3. Brainpower, bespoke—14 years of proven experience—, and a comprehensive work process to amplify the boundaries of your business, industry communication in European Portuguese.
4. Full-scale linguistic details to language detail-oriented, as details matter most, i.e., gained language skills, inner language cognizance, and linguistics purview. They are the rules of grammar or terminology details on the target language and audience, the lexical cohesion and phraseology, register, meaning conveyed, no omissions, or errors that bring to life the unique characteristics only found in my textual, translation work.
My 8 years' experience, profound and technical knowledge, and expertise in Medical, Pharmaceutics and Healthcare fields — translation of technical, regulatory, clinical and marketing documentation, software and training curriculum —, make my all-inclusive translation competences in English to Portuguese, and in Spanish to Portuguese, highly qualified, high-level and professional.
Aside from my linguistic skills, and in order to translate medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare content, and because of its highly technical, sensitive and regulated nature, I have a professional training course in Biomedical Engineering (theoretical and practical) of 1590 hours.
I have been working for Tyco Electronics Corporation (TE Medical Solutions), International Language Services, Inc., Language Scientific, Inc. and Directorate-General for Translation (European Commission) with all type of medical, pharmaceutics and healthcare documentation: Adverse Events, Case Report Forms (CRF), Data Collection Forms (DCF), Clinical Protocols, CRA Training Materials & Videos, Drug Registration Documentation, Informed Consent Forms, Instructions for Use (IFU and e-IFU), Manufacturing Process Descriptions, Master Batch Records and Deviation Reports, Marketing Collateral, NDA and IND, Package Inserts and Labels, Pharmacological Studies, Product Labels, Production Manuals, Protocols, Regulatory Documents, SAE and SOP Procedures, Scientific Journal Articles, Software and Hardware, Toxicology Reports, Diagnostic Equipment, Medical Imaging Machines, Medical Monitors, Medical Laboratory Equipment, Diagnostic Medical Equipment, Surgical Instruments, and Pharmacopoeia.
In compliance with the European Union Directives: a) Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC (MDD); b) In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Directive 98/79/EEC (IVDD); c) Active Implantable Medical Device Directive 90/385/EEC (AIMDD); and d) Directive 2004/27/EC Concerning Human Medicines, my know-how and experience in countless fields of Life Sciences within the fields of health, medicine, pharmaceutical industry, diagnostics, biotechnology, genetics and clinical research, are near to complete and accurate.
I have been working with Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH since 2008, and with McNEIL-PPC, Inc., since 2011, with all kind of contents, such as Product Development, Testing, Product Usage, Sales and Marketing, Multicultural Research and Focus Groups, Patient Brochures, Physician Presentations, Multimedia Advertising, Prescribing Information, Packaging and Labeling, Patents and Intellectual Property, and Questionnaires.
Industrial, Electronics, Nuclear and Mechanics Engineering translation is unique from other types of industry translations in that the quality and accuracy of this translation must incorporate an expert knowledge, as well as careful attention to operating detail and quality assurance. On the other hand, precision, regularity performance and consistency, are paramount when it comes to this type of translations.
Aside from my linguistic competences, and in order to translate industrial, electronics, nuclear and mechanics content, I have a professional training course in Metal and Mechanics (theoretical and practical) of 1590 hours.
I have been working for Tyco Electronics Corporation for about 7 years (TE Industry Solutions), Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and TJC Global — to mention some; with all type of industrial engineering and mechanics documentation: Design & Manufacturing, Logistics, Robotic, Maintenance, Mechanics, Electricity, Electromagnetic Systems, Network Analysis, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Signals and Systems, Control Systems, Communications, Kinematics, Nuclear Reactors, Nuclear Power Plants, Radiation, Nuclear Safety, Nuclear Medicine, Nuclear Materials and Nuclear Fuels, Radiation Protection and Measurement, Thermodynamics, Energy, Structural Analysis, Transport Systems, Oil & Gas, Biomechanics, Transport Phenomena, Biomechatronics, Bionanotechnology, Heavy Equipment, Automotive Industry, Motor Vehicles, Aircraft, Watercraft, Industrial Equipment & Machinery, Fluid Mechanics, Servo-Mechanisms, Energy Conversion, Mechanosynthesis, and Nanotechnology.

Sewage Systems, Firefighting, Pneumatic Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, Gas Turbines, Naval Architecture and/or Ship Design, Cargo, Loading and Unloading Gear, Oil & Gas Drilling Rigs, Mechanical Vapor Recompression Systems (MVRs), Closed-Cycle Compression Heat Pumps, Absorption Heat Pumps (Type I), Heat Transformers (Type II), Reverse Brayton-Cycle Heat Pumps, Space Heating, Process Water Heating and Cooling, Steam Production, Drying Processes, Evaporation and Distillation Processes, are also several particular fields of my strong experience and knowledge within Industrial, Electronics, Nuclear and Mechanics Engineering.
The manufacturing and development of a modern flight vehicle is an enormously complex process and demands careful balance and compromise between design, abilities, costs and available technology. Aerospace and aviation engineering fields design, test, and supervise the manufacture of aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles, as well as develop new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and space.
Once the Aviation field is extremely networked between tight protocols and in result of translating technical and non-technical rigorous aeronautical material, I have a professional training course in Aviation Systems and Operations, conducted and endorsed by Embraer S.A. and the Institute of Employment and Professional Training (IEFP).
I have been working for Tyco Electronics Corporation (TE Aerospace, Defense & Marine) since 2007 and with Embraer S.A., since 2008, with the translation of all kind of documentation: Civil Aviation, Air Transport, Air Safety, Air Traffic Control, Environmental Impact, Air Traffic Flow Management, Aircraft Maintenance, Aircraft Engine Controls, Coefficient of Lift, Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), Flight Instrument, Flight Management System, GPS, Integrated Engine Pressure Ratio (IEPR), Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul, Radar, Reciprocating Engines, Turbine Engine, Visual Flight Rules (VFR), Wide-Body Aircraft, Electrotechnology, Electric Propulsion and Ion Propulsion, Aircraft Structures, Software, Noise Control, Manufacturing, Functional Safety, Commercial Aviation, Executive Jets, Defense and Security Aircrafts, Agricultural Aviation, Aircraft Electrical Interconnection Harnesses, Wings and Landing Gear, Power Distribution, and Sub Assemblies and Design.
