Professional practices Adrian Minckley endorses's Professional Guidelines.

US based, native English speaker specializing in Marketing, Media and Journalism translation. I offer fluent, stylistically informed and culturally relevant translations to businesses and non-profits looking to communicate across borders and reach new audiences.

My academic training, lived experience in Brazil and commercial work are all informed by one another, allowing me to be faithful to the original text while creating an end-product that reads like an original, English-language work, delivered on time, every time.

Willing to work outside my specialization areas depending on the content of the text, and especially interested in academic writing, general legal documents, and art related projects. 

Master of the Arts in Literary Translation - The University of Rochester - 2017

Bachelor of the Arts in Social Theory - The Evergreen State College - 2013
