Hello all!

I have an army aviation and law enforcement background from my life in the UK, and taught English for five years here in Brazil before going full time as a translator/interpreter.

I offer swift, accurate and polished translations of a wide variety of subject matter – as a keen writer (four articles published in the UK Telegraph), I never aim for anything less than producing quality content in English which is perfectly suited to the target reader.

I have wide experience in simultaneous, consecutive and whispered interpretation and can travel at short notice to do this type of work, also providing services of receiving, accompanying, interpreting and fixing for overseas visitors to Brazil, whether for business or tourism.

I also provide first-class proofreading, revision and editing services and regularly subtitle and transcribe corporate, commercial and general interest films/audio, also working with song lyrics.

My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, mining and minerals, construction, engineering, sports, the environment, marketing and journalism.


Company status in Brazil (Swift Traduções Ltda) and can invoice both here and overseas.


Thanks for reading. Success!
