Bio

As someone passionate about science as well as languages and communication, I find translating an ideal way to combine these different interests. I am also an avid reader, reading almost anything I can lay my hands on.

I have lived, studied and worked in the Netherlands, Brazil and the United Kingdom.
My scientific background is biomedicine and cell and molecular biology, with an MSc in biotechnology and a PhD in molecular virology.
Part of my education took place at Fiocruz (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz) Institute, which is where my passion for language and intercultural communication started.

I have over ten years' experience in biochemical and biomedical research with a focus on writing, reviewing and publishing scientific papers and reports on

  • microscopy
  • biochemistry
  • virology and parasitology
  • molecular biology

I have been translating part time since 2002 and full time from 2012, specialising in scientific, technical, medical and pharmaceutical translations, including medical equipment and documents and protocols for clinical trials. I hold the Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists (Portuguese - English, as no Portuguese - Dutch exam was on offer) with distinctions for the General and the Science paper. I am a member of the Netherlands Association of Interpreters and Translators (NGTV).

I have an eye for detail, the ability to recognise differences between cultures and the ability to render a translation culturally as well as scientifically appropriate.
I consider myself good at listening and learning and enjoy working in a team as well as working independently.
I work well with deadlines and am not afraid to admit I am not qualified to translate a particular subject or text, or to ask for clarification on terms I am not familiar with.
