Me and My Work
- I am 45 years old.
- I have been a translator for 23 years.
- Brazilian Portuguese is my native language.
- English is my second language.
- I have a top-notch command of Spanish, Italian and French.
- I have a Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) in English and Portuguese, I was an English teacher and an interpreter for several years and I have spoken and written in English on a daily basis for the past 20 years.
- I am 100% qualified to translate into English as well into Brazilian Portuguese.
- I am reliable. You will receive all of your projects ahead of time.
I work considerably fast.
- I pursue high quality and excellence in everything I do.

Why hiring a “native translator” is not enough

- Specialized terminology is a learned skill, not native intuition;
- Native competency does not equal native or advanced competency in a second language;
- Native fluency means different things to different people.

Highlights of My Two Decades on the Road!

- I am a member of ProZ and of TranslatorsCafe.
- I started my career back in 1997.
- I use translation tools (such as MemoQ, Trados and Wordfast) in order to easily handle the different file formats as well as to maintain consistency by leveraging translation memories and glossaries.
- My decision to become a full-time translator was influenced by my extensive experience as an English teacher followed by my in-depth work in a publishing house, where the demand for error-free pristine documents was sharpened by a very challenging factor: the books were sent directly to the printing shop! I know what pressure is all about.
- I pursued Brazilian Portuguese and English studies in three different Brazilian universities:
São Paulo University (USP)
Anhanguera (formerly known as Unibero) and
São Judas Tadeu.
- I only translate into Brazilian Portuguese and/or English.
In addition, I adapt European Portuguese to Brazilian Portuguese.
- My translation work covers multiple fields.

Quality  Assurance

I follow a highly strict proofreading process, which I have designed after years focused on high-quality work:
1) During translation: I fully review my translation by comparing it to the original text (to make sure nothing is skipped or left behind).
2) On screen: After spellcheck, I listen to the translated text while reading its original back and forth using an audio software application (to avoid typos).
3) In print: Last but not least, I revise everything once again. This is when I exercise more creativity while using with the good old Pen & Paper duo.
4) Peer review: I take confidentiality agreements very seriously, but if you need and approve, I can have my translation work edited by a fellow seasoned colleague in Brazil or in Portugal, with whom I have been working for almost a decade.

What’s Next?

After receiving the first document properly translated, proofread and formatted by me, you will notice what a serious professional translator and editor I am.
Why? Simply said, I do my job with passion and professionalism.

My skills can help you achieve your translation and proofreading goals.
I will be delighted to answer your e-mail message or your call.

I am earnestly looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
