Bio
Olá a todos! Hello everyone! Hola a todos!

I’m a Brazilian/Canadian citizen based in Vancouver, Canada since 2009 with more than 9 years of experience working as a TRANSLATOR and over 5 years working as an INTERPRETER (court, medical, conference, etc.). I have also been working as a LANGUAGE TEACHER for over 16 years, teaching Brazilian Portuguese and English at language schools or as a private tutor (in person and online, via Skype).

I have also recently started an MA program in Educational Studies at the University of British Columbia (2015 - 2017), with a research interest in anti-oppressive education, gender and sexuality, and global education.

--------------------

Since February 2010 I have been offering TRANSLATION and INTERPRETING services in Canada.

Also, I have been working as a Brazilian Portuguese and Culture INSTRUCTOR, teaching students in person here in Vancouver as well as online for those living in other parts of Canada and in other countries.

I have also worked in the past few years as a Coordinator of Translation Projects for some clients through a vast network of fellow translators who work with me offering services in many other languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Punjabi, Hindi, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, German).

-------------------

CERTIFIED TRANSLATOR:

As for translators’ associations, I am a Certified Member of STIBC (Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia) for ENG> PORT. [http://www.stibc.org/page/certified%20member%20directory/ezlist_member_d5ca93af-9f71-4863-a863-79a7bf3ded89.aspx]

I am also an Associate Member of ATA (American Translators Association). [http://www.atanet.org/listing/17819]

I have great experience in translating documents and texts from English into Portuguese and Portuguese into English.

Throughout all this time that I have been working as a linguist, I have had the pleasure and opportunity to work in various types of translation projects with many different agencies and people across the world. I am happy to say that I have always received very positive feedback from clients and colleagues, who regard me as "highly recommendable and extremely meticulous, communicative and personable to work with".


EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:

I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology (2007) and a Teaching Qualification degree in Social Sciences (2009) from one of Brazil's TOP universities: UNICAMP - State University of Campinas.

Moreover, I have taken classes in many other areas as well, such as: Anthropology, Biology, Economics, Education/Pedagogy, History, Gender, Geography, Languages, Linguistics, Literature, Psychology, Political Science, Sexuality, etc.

Here in Vancouver I have taken different courses in Academic and Business English.
I have also taken an online training course on Medical Interpretation (mitio.org), and I finished a specialization course in Interpreting and Translation for Court at Vancouver Community College (VCC) in June 2011. Later, I also complete the Medical and Community Services Interpreting Program in April 2012 at VCC.

In January 2015, I finished the program “Certificate in Translation – Portuguese” with the University of Toronto.

I have also recently started an MA program in Educational Studies at the University of British Columbia (2015 - 2017), with a research interest in anti-oppressive education, gender and sexuality, and global education.
