Born in Mozambique to parents from different linguistic and cultural background, I grew up speaking Portuguese and English both as native languages.

After completion of a Bachelor's Degree in Portuguese and English Teaching and a Master's Degree in English Language teaching, from the New University of Lisbon, Portugal, I decided to devote my skills, time and experience to translation, proofreading and interpreting.

For over seven years now, I have translated, proofed and reviewed more than 900,000 words all together, having worked on various medical reports and surveys, marketing brochures, instruction manuals, TV show scripts and synopsis, e-commerce product descriptions, certificates, diplomas, insurance policies, among others.

If you need a fast, meticulous and professional translator in English-Portuguese language pair, please feel free to contact me at above address.
