Professional practices

Passionate for languages and translation, I am a professional English/Spanish-Brazilian Portuguese translator, proofreader and editor, having accumulated a good number of job experiences with a variety of clients, including agencies, companies, NGOs and individuals.

I'm in the translation industry since late 2008 and my experience mostly lies in the life sciences sphere [projects in Pharmacology, Adverse Event Management and Reporting, Drug Monitoring Questionnaires, Clinical Trials, Surveys (for healthcare market research firms), Ophthalmology and Medical Instruments/Equipment, such as macroporous mesh, cylinder filling devices and oxygen concentrators].

I have also translated contents of technical nature, such as user manuals and assembly guidelines of large global brands.

Beyond that, my experience spans the translation of nearly 300 articles from Brazilian researchers, all of them accepted for publication in international journals.

Over the last years I've also worked in the translation/review of management/administration as well as animal welfare-related contents, and these domains have been recently included in my list of expertise areas.

I currently estimate I have translated/reviewed nearly 3 million words in my entire career and I work as a full-time translator/reviewer. I value efficiency and quality above all and I'm always open to establish new partnerships. 

You can find my professional information on Proz, LinkedIn and my website. No other directories have been authorized to publish my information.
