I am passionate about creating fluent, captivating English translations of Portuguese content. I have developed my cultural and language fluency over the last twenty years, and have been a full-time translator for twelve years.

If you've crafted a message for your audience and are determined to achieve the same effect in English, you've come to the right place. My extensive experience translating in my specialty areas allows me to flawlessly render your ideas in a way that draws in native readers of English.

You might already have noticed that I specialize in a single language pair and a select number of fields. Focusing my attention in this way helps me produce the flawless work demanded by my quality-conscious clients.

All of my specialties require solid writing skills, rigorous research and attention to detail. These include legal translation, particularly contracts; annual reports and institutional copy; and art criticism and history for artists and museums. As a result of my 6 years living in Southern Brazil, I also have experience in the footwear and furniture industries.

Here’s a snapshot of the areas where I do most of my work. Please note that every project is unique, offering its own opportunities and challenges. It’s my professional responsibility to be honest about my ability to efficiently deliver a high-quality translation for any given project. (I have experience translating contracts, but I won’t necessarily accept every contract project for translation.)
