My name is Mary Palmer and I am a professional Portuguese to English/English to Portuguese translator with over 15 years of experience. I am a Brazilian native but literally grew up bilingual since my father is American and my mother is Brazilian. I lived in both countries Brazil and the United States for more than 20 years, have excellent command of both languages and am very familiar with their cultures, traditions and customs.

While living in the US (Cincinnati, OH), my late husband and I owned a Foundation Repair Company during 11 years and I managed the business. I have therefore gained extensive experience in numerous fields such as construction, engineering, human resources, finances, accounting, business administration, marketing/advertising, etc. Our foundation repair company was a certified dealer of AB Chance Company/Hubbell Power Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of helical piers and brackets which are used to secure residential and commercial buildings. I performed a wide variety of duties such as:

→ All Human Resource Administration duties;
→ Payroll process and expense reporting through Quick Books;
→ Accounts payable and receivable; invoicing for multiple customers;
→ Extensive work in Excel and Word;
→ Shipping and transportation of equipment;
→ Preparation of addenda, structural drawings, contracts and proposals;
→ Daily record keeping, check writing, deposits, withdrawals;
→ Reconciliation of all cash receipts;
→ Established excellent working relationships with customers.

I am a proud member of the Certified Pro Network (CPN) which is a certification program initiated in 2008 in full compliance with the EN15038 quality standards. I was admitted into this Network of Professional Translators in June 2009 (Portuguese to English) and March 2012 (English to Portuguese). In order to be accepted into the Certified Pro Network, the translator must pass a test and meet the following requirements:

1. Translation ability :

► Competence in source
► Competence in target
► Research competence
► Cultural competence
► Technical competence

2. Business reliability

3. Good Citizenship

With each translation assignment, I strive for nothing less than excellence.

I am a widow and have 2 daughters (both Americans) who are also fluent in both languages.

I provide high quality translations and always make sure the translated text conveys the same message as the source language text and can be easily understood by a native English or Brazilian Portuguese speaker.

My daily output is around 3000 words. My rates per source word will depend upon the size and complexity of the translation project.
