About me
Hi there! I am a British national, although I have lived in Portugal with my Dutch wife for the last twenty years. Before moving here, I lived in Holland for six years, so I am totally fluent in both Dutch and Portuguese.

In addition, I am a qualified TEFL teacher and I have a great interest in linguistics.

Over the years I have worked in a wide range of environments with both Dutch and Portuguese nationals, principally in broadcast TV and building renovation. Between 2004 and 2012, I carried out a number of translation jobs from Dutch and Portuguese into English, as well as some teaching work. Since 2012, I have worked as a translator full-time, averaging around 50,000 words a month. My work has covered websites, HR documents, tender specifications, accident reports, literature and minutes of meetings.

My educational background is in engineering and I have a degree from King's College London, so I am well equipped to take on technical translations.

Flexibility and intelligent use of technology mean that I can accompany your projects accurately and swiftly, and I will go that extra mile to translate a tricky word.

I understand the need for cost control and the necessity to meet deadlines, and I will not let you down!
