Skills and experience
Translating for hobby since 1999, I've decided to take it seriously in 2013, due to free time in my daytime job. I'm a Linguistics/Portuguese Bachelor (BA; First Cycle), graduated in FFLCH/USP (Faculdade de Filosofia, Letras e Ciências Humanas/Universidade de São Paulo), and have worked with various fields of expertise: working full time with the technical field of mechanical engineering for 15 years, from 1997 to 2012, where I had to use softwares, and to deal with customers, both in English and Portuguese, and translating literature, poetry and games as a hobby. I used to work to the governement, as HR Supervisor, and I have decided to take Translation Studies seriously, enrolled in a course at Casa Guilherme de Almeida Museum, one of the most important and renowned translation studies centers in Brazil. Later, I'd decided to do a thorough course at Brasillis, a top-notch translation and interpretation school.

Meanwhile, I'd began this part time job as freelancer translator.
Today, I work as a Digital Entrepreneur. 
Tipically USD 0.05 – 0.08 per word. May be more, may be less, according to the job.
