Professional practices Donna Sandin endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Translation of all kinds of Brazilian legal and business documents (except patents and trademarks). Legislation, lawsuits, tax matters. Politics and current events. International development issues regarding Portuguese-speaking African countries. Also broad range of non-scientific subject matter. I limit my freelance work to Portuguese to English, although I am fully competent in Spanish to English

34 years as translator of Portuguese and Spanish into English, including 14 years as a part-time staff translator at the U.S. Department of State; 3 years at a leading law firm in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Fulltime freelance since 1999.

I lived in Brazil for 8 years, in two four-year stays in different cities. I keep current on Brazilian legal and business issues by subscription to a leading Brazilian newsmagazine, contacts with colleagues in Brazil, and occasional visits.
