About me
I was born in Portugal with English parents, having attended Portuguese school.
I am fully bilingual, English being spoken at home and Portuguese at school and with friends.
Although I have never been taught in English at an academic level, my spelling and vocabulary are outstanding, mainly being learnt from reading books.
I worked for three years as a journalist for an English newspaper in Portugal, which consisted of translating many Portuguese news stories to English and also interpreting on several occasions.
I have done some work as an interpreter in Portuguese Court and I have also carried out many translations.
I have a lot of free time available at the moment and I am very interested in doing translations on a professional level.

What I have noticed with several translations, mostly subtitles from movies, is that slang and colloquial terms are usually wrongly translated. Having lived in both countries, England and Portugal, I have the benefit of knowing these terms better than others.
I am very keen on becoming a professional translator and only need an opportunity to prove my worth.
