A little about me

I am a native Potuguese translator and transcreator based in Portugal.

I started working as a translator almost 20 years ago, after I finished my university degree in French and English. More recently, I have completed a Post-graduation degree in Computer Assisted Translation, to keep up with the latest technologies in the field.

To this I add my commitment to CPD: over the years, I have attended dozens of short courses, webinars, and workshops on translation-related issues and the specialist fields I work in. Legal translation; translating for the tourism industry; business translation; cooking; ecology; craft beer: these are examples of the subjects I’ve done courses in, to name but a few.

I have in-house experiences as translator and reviser in EU institutions, among others. As a freelancer,  I have worked for public organizations, translation agencies, media outlets, publishing houses, and private-sector companies.

Fields of expertise:

- Tourism (with several translations of travel guides published)

- Food & Drink, Culinary (with several translations of cookbooks published)

- Marketing

- Politics, EU Affairs, International Organizations

- Human Sciences

Other areas of work:

- Contracts

- Arts/Entertainment


- Environment

I will be happy to send you my CV, references, samples of former assignments, and list of published translations.

Whatever the size or scope of your project, this is what you can expect from me: respect for deadlines, confidentiality, impeccable writing, accurate terminology.

If you are as passionate as I am about getting the best translation for your documents, I look forward to hearing from you!
