Professional practices Vasco Mota Pereira endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
Having a degree in European Studies, I am ready to face many of the issues related to the European Union, from Law and Economics up to Language matters. Furthermore, my professional experience has also provided me with the opportunity of mastering the technical jargon of the automotive as well as the literary and IT fields.

I take pride in being competent, consistent and hard working. I am always extremely careful and thorough in the translation and proofreading of my works. This has given me the opportunity to work in several large-scoped projects for major internationl players in these and other fields, including the translation of the books "Our Iceberg is Melting" and "Death of a Dissident", the translation from Portuguese into English of 26 screenplays for a TV show and two books for that same client, the translation of hundreds of thousands of words of IT, web software and hardware assignments for the most important companies of this field, including many others. These are some of the reasons why I truly believe in my work and skills.
