I am a Canadian who has lived over 5 years in Brazil (Belo Horizonte). Having worked for a Brazilian/Canadian Joint Venture Mining and Environmental Laboratory I have had a wide variety of opportunities to work on translation projects and do near simultaneous translation in meetings. Now, having returned to Canada with a Brazilian wife and stepson I continue to speak Portuguese every day. I have been working with a partner in Brazil for a number of years and we continue to provide large scale technical translations. My experience includes everything from feasability studies through advertising material (websites) down to routine formal letters.
