About me
Quality and Trust in Business & Legal Translations

I have been a professional translator for about 16 years. I translate from English into Brazilian Portuguese. Although I have translated some books, most of my experience revolves around technical translations in legal, business and corporate fields.

Areas of expertise:

My areas of expertise include law, business, corporate affairs, trade, management, human resources, government, European Union issues, environment, culture, history, bioethics, religion, etc.

I have much experience translating these types of documents:

- contracts and agreements in general;
- commercial letters in general;
- powers of attorney;
- minutes of shareholders’ meetings;
- by-laws;
- articles of association;
- HSE (health, safety and environment) guidelines;
- employee training materials;
- sustainability reports;
- e-learning texts;
- government resolutions;
- EU directives;
- environmental reports;
- magazine/newspapers articles on politics, economics, history, education, culture, Catholicism etc.


I hold an Elementary Teacher Formation Certificate and a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy. Moreover, I studied English for several years at the most distinguished English school in my city. I also studied other foreign languages, such as Spanish and German.

Proficiency Certificates:

- Certificate of Proficiency in English by the University of Cambridge.
- DBB Translators' Formation Course

Books translated:

- The Smart Woman's Guide to Career Success, Janet Hauter, Ediouro
- Looking for God, Steven Sadler, Ediouro
- Catholics for a Free Choice Exposed - Dirty Ideas, Dirty Money, HL

CAT Tools: I currently use Trados Studio 2015. It is my favorite CAT tool. However, I have also tried other CAT Tools, such as Wordfast Classic and Wordfast Anywhere.
