Professional practices Sheila Silva endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I hold a BA in International Affairs and Conflict Resolution. My degree is accredited by several universities in Brazil, Bolivia and Canada, including the University of Brasilia, Nur University and the British Columbia Institute of Technology, respectively. Much of my work experience over the past 10 years has been in the field of translation across English, Portuguese and Spanish. I am also a TESL – Canada certified ESL teacher. These experiences have afforded me much opportunity to develop and focus my translation and interpretation skills.

I have also worked as an advisor and executive assistant for the governments of Brazil and Georgia (external affairs and energy) (3 years), as a public relations liaison for an international religious organization in Israel (3 years), and as the translation team manager at a publishing trust in Brazil (1 year). I currently reside in British Columbia, Canada and work as a freelance translator and interpreter for Spanish/English and English/Spanish.

Much of my current work is with Northwest Community College, translating extensive technical and academic documents related to employment education and the mining industry, bound for the governments of Bolivia and Colombia. I am looking to expand my translation services. I offer my clients guaranteed excellence and a prompt service. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your translation needs and how best I may be able to serve you.
