I have over twenty five years working experience in business dealing with both languages on a daily basis - Portuguese and English - working in New York for the REDE GLOBO TV NETWORK and then with my own export company selling to affiliated stations of the network.
And for the past 8 years since moving to Brazil, have been making a living solely with TRANSLATION WORK.
I am a naturalized U.S. CITIZEN. Moved to Long Island, New York at a young age, so I'm fully bilingual: ENGLISH-PORTUGUESE. As you can see from my CV, I have a Bachelor's degree in Economics with a minor in Business Administration from SUNY (State University of New York) at Stony Brook.
I have translated numerous service and operation manuals for electronic and broadcast equipment while working in the TV industry ( GLOBO and affiliated stations). Also have done many Legal Contracts having to do with Service Agreements and engineering and related to other businesses also. Also I have assisted in several projects - bids for Oil exploration companies. Lived in Belo Horizonte (for approx.8 years) capital of Minas Gerais state - Brazil, where many mining companies are headquartered there and also did a few projects for these companies. Have been involved in several Health Care projects, marketing surveys, business proposals, public tender, bids, tourist literature, Telecommunication material, construction/civil engineering, software localization, scientific papers, and so on.....
I can work from both versions ( European and Brazilian). I am originally from Portugal, but have been working for Brazilian companies for many years and lived in Brazil for about 8 years. It has been a wide range of subjects these past 7-8 years of full time translating.
I have also translated quite a number of technical material from SPANISH into ENGLISH.
