MITI - Qualified member of the ITI
Member of ATA's Medical Division


I'm a Brazilian translator specializing in medical and life sciences. I have 15 years of translation experience, most of which in the fields of medicine, pharmaceuticals, and clinical trials. I'm used to routines of translation agencies, having worked both as a freelancer and as an in-house translator. I'm a proficient user of CAT tools such as memoQ, Trados, and Wordfast Pro. Always 100% committed to producing translations that are highly readable, concise, and most of all scientifically accurate, putting ethics and patient safety in first place.

Credential status: Since 2013: MITI: Qualified Member of the ITI - Institute of Translation and Interpreting, in the UK, assessed in "Medicine and pharmaceuticals".

Last but not least, I'm interested in pharmaceutical research and development, especially when it comes to clinical trials. Here, my work includes:

- Careful use of globally-accepted scientific terminology, as published on clinical research databases in the US and Brazil;
- Adherence to Brazilian official health care and pharmaceutical terminology published by regulatory bodies;
- Observance to clients' technical preferences and style guides;
- Strict quality control for accuracy, grammar, and style;
- And friendly support through a project's lifecycle, with an eye on long-term cooperation.
