About me
Oi!

I have been working as a professional freelance translator since 2010, from English into (Brazilian) Portuguese.

Most of my working experience was gained localizing websites and software applications and manuals.

I have also translated many texts in law, business, life sciences, social sciences, travel & tourism, medicine and technology for a number of organizations, including NGOs and multinational information technology companies.

I offer a variety of linguistic services, such as proofreading (technical and linguistic), transcription, localization and quality assurance testing.

I have also worked for a couple of years as a community interpreter for a local council in the UK.

I have worked with a number of CAT and tEnT tools, such as memoQ, SDL Trados Studio (SDLX, Tag Editor, Termbase, Multiterm), Passolo 2011, XBench, among others. I hold licenses to work with all of the above.

I have completed a course in theory and practice of translation which is recognized by ATA and ABRATES. After completion of my course I did an internship at Oxfam GB, where I worked as a translation assistant for 6 months translating human rights texts and other general content for NGOs, proofreading, subtitling, creating translation guides and glossaries for other translators, as well as managing projects.

I completed my degree in law at the Federal University of Pelotas, a recognized university by the Brazilian governmental body for education.

I am a ProZ Certified PRO member. This means that I hold a certification in translation issued by ProZ. This process involved checking my professional and linguistic abilities. Thus my references have been checked and I have passed the required translation test.

I have had my references also checked by the ITI, thus gaining access to the appropriate association membership category as an associate member.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to request a quote.

Obrigada!
