Bio
I provide Linguistic services from English and French into Portuguese and vice-versa. I am a European-Portuguese native. I am a DPSI holder, with specialization in Health. I also hold several other practical work-focused training courses in various areas as part of my pro-active self-study nature.

My work experience, before I committed to provide linguistic services, was in Portugal Telecom, working as a Sales & Administrative Assistant, during Expo'98 at PT Orient train/bus terminal branch, near the Parque das Nações (Nations Park), selling telecom products (all sorts) and crediting TMN customers mobiles at their request. One year later, I started working at TAP Airlines, also as an Administrative Assistant at an HR Dpt. and apart from all the other tasks my Supervisors expected from me, I also had access to the flights booking systems, which allowed me to book flights for Aircraft Maintenance Technicians for ordered aircraft Inspections. Furthermore I also provided hotel bookings wherever needed for working and pleasure trips for all of the staff.

I am currently working as a Public Services Interpreter for 4 UK companies, providing services for the Portuguese community in Hospitals, Clinics, Health centres and practices, dental practices, Social Services, Housing Associations, Schools, Medical Exams (DWP), I.A.S. In parallel I am also providing Private Interpreting services for other accesses for the Portuguese community such as Banks, Estate Agents and others. I also work as freelancer as a Telephone Interpreter providing services for the Department of Work and Pensions as well as for Her Majesty Revenue & Customs, adding to the NHS system, as well as for VISA INTERNATIONAL. Adding to that, I provide Translation work on a regular basis in several areas (Public Services, Health, Legal, Technical, Technology, Media & Marketing, Literary, products descriptions, correspondence, general) either for major language companies as for freelancer outsourcers.

More recently, between 2010 and 2011 I have performed for the National Construction College, in King's Lynn, at CPCS training and exams towards the European official certification of Portuguese construction workers.

I do not perform work as a Legal Interpreter AND I only provide Human Translations.

BECAUSE I AM REGISTERED WITH SEVERAL COMPANIES and WEBSITES AND MY BULK OF WORK DOES NOT COME FROM ProZ I DON'T CHECK IT VERY OFTEN. Please email me or add me to your Skype (lusangloki0sk) for further info.
