Professional practices Tereza Rae endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I grew up in Brazil, but I have lived in Canada for more than half of my life. I demonstrate exceptional verbal and written communication skills in English, Portuguese, and French. I am reliable, attentive to detail, and committed to excellence. My goal is always to translate messages/ideas accurately in a way that sounds natural to native speakers. I enjoy helping people from different places and cultures to connect and communicate. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions. I will provide my CV upon request.
