About me
Translation is about communication. In the global society we live in it is crucial to effectively communicate with others. That’s where Translation comes in, improving communication.

I value quality and efficiency in order to facilitate the communication process. I’ve been involved with the English language for 22 years now. I am familiar with its nuances and complexities and I have extensive knowledge in vocabulary, written style and grammar. I am also a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese.

My main interests are Technology, Foresight, Futures, Innovation, Strategy, Aerospace/Astronautics.
I have working experience with Economics, Automotive, Tourism, Marketing, Social Sciences and literature.

I have an excellent knowledge of a diverse range of information technology and internet tools, including web page design (HTML) and internet research. I am experienced in Microsoft operational systems, including advanced administrative knowledge, Microsoft Office and other Translation related softwares, as I use Xbench and CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) softwares, such as Wordfast, Trados and MemoQ.

I have been involved with Foresight, Innovation and Strategy for the past 6 years. I have won the World Future Society Intern of the Year award while working there in Bethesda, MD, USA. I currently have a post graduate degree in Foresight, Strategy and Innovation and am taking a PhD in Technology Assessment in Portugal.

I have also been a musician for 15 years now, having released some records in Europe and South America.

Moreover I have also been an English teacher, not only in schools but also working as a private English tutor for 2 years.
