About me
A professional linguist and cross-cultural consultant working mainly with the language pairs English < > Portuguese as a translator and interpreter. I have developed a long-lasting business relationship with direct clients and many translation agencies, but I am always looking forward to expand my portfolio. I also translate from French and Spanish into English and/or Portuguese.

I specialize in legal, marketing and social sciences translation, delivering an average of 400K words per year. As an interpreter, I worked 600 hours in 2012 alone for a government agency, in addition to my court interpreting work.
