Professional practices Denise Leitao endorses's Professional Guidelines.

If you need a translator or interpreter who knows well both Portuguese and English, I can help you!

I've done a lot of events as a simultaneous interpreter and I love it! I love the thrill of participating in important conferences, the responsibility it entails, and how I need to think fast and quickly to deliver a quality interpretation with a confident and pleasant voice. 

With two published novels and two novellas in English, I can guarantee a quality output in the language. At the same time, I was born in Brazil and studied in university there, so I really understand the subtleties and nuances of Portuguese. If you need an expert translation for academic or literary texts, contact me. 

I have a Master's in English Literature and a lot of experience editing texts in English. I was born in Brazil, where I also went to university, and I speak and write Portuguese perfectly.

I have experience with simultaneous interpreting and I can interpret from English to Portuguese, from Portuguese to English and from French to Portuguese.
