Who am I?

I am a native English speaker (and proud Canadian) with more than 7 years of professional experience as a translator of Portuguese to English (I am equally comfortable in European and Brazilian variants).

I have 7+ years of professional experience as an editor/journalist, adding an extra layer of quality control to any text I translate or revise.

Academically, I have a B.A. Honours in Cultural Studies and Environmental Studies.

What are my specialties?

My expertise lies in the fields of Fine Art, History, Tourism & Hospitality, Environment and International Development, and eCommerce and Marketing. 

That said, I am not averse to translating the occasional company annual report or certificates/CVs and the like. I am always open to receiving proposals/requests in general.

Who have I translated for?

Through a regular stable of direct clients and multilingual vendors, my translations have been used by a wide array of organizations, including:

  • Leading cultural institutions, Portugal: Gulbenkian Foundation, MAAT, EGEAC, Parques de Sintra, Museu Berardo
  • Intergovernmental organizations: Food & Agriculture Organization, UNEP Brazil, UNDP
  • Corporate venues: Angola Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, Amorim Revestimentos, Clube FC Porto

What I can do for you

I bring curiosity about the world, passion for culture and the written
word, unerring professionalism and warmth, and dedication to detail to
every project I endeavor to take on.

Every text you entrust to me is translated and proofread to the highest native English standard, tailor-made for the local context to which it pertains. This means you will never get a word-for-word translation that reads awkwardly. You will get a text that flows with style and ease.

I also adhere to the highest professional standards on confidentiality.
