Professional practices Monica Martins endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I work as a freelance full time technical translator (Portuguese) since end 2010. And I work as a part-time and/or voluntary translator in Portuguese for much longer. I am ex-pat in Germany for more than 15 years now and using English and German everyday and quite extensively. I worked many years as an engineer/physicist in a big corporation. Nowadays besides translating there is some occasional but significant amount of film editing and programming in my daily schedule.

I have been translating a lot, mainly in domains like robotics, automation, medical physics, telecommunications, software (incl. code) and programming, and have done also some excursions in translations for several NGOs, official entities, so I am also at home in domains like politics, social work, human rights, etc.
