As an engineer with over 20 years of experience in the computer industry, I've worked on software and hardware development teams, as well as on training departments in some leader companies of the IT market. My responsibilities included technical writing, translation, review and QA of project documents, equipment manuals, training courses material, technical standards, bulletins and other technical materials. I worked for three years in a Brazilian translation agency, being responsible for the management of the technical translation area. I have a strong background in computer technology, software environment, and engineering, and these skills benefit my performance in technical translations and software localization. My international background includes training and working in the US, where I lived during three years.
