It is definitely not enough to just know a second language in order to be a successful translator; translating is much more than that, it is meant to relay a message to the reader as if it was written in the language being read.

Hi everyone,

My passion for the English language has started early; I was influenced by my mother who was an English teacher and an international tourist guide. By the sixth semester of pursuing a major in Civil Engineering, I decided to drop out and follow my dream of moving to the United States, where I came to live for almost ten years.

While living in the United States, I worked as a salesman at a Brazilian superstore and studied English at OCPS Tech Center (Orange County Public Schools), where I enrolled into a program named ESOL (English for students of other languages).

On my return to Brazil, I joined the largest Radio Taxi Drivers Association in Latin America located in São Paulo, where I worked for twelve years as a bilingual tourist guide and escort interpreter.

I am a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese and I am close to achieving my bachelor´s degree in English. I have been teaching English at the most reliable school of Languages in Ourinhos - SP, named GSP (Global Studies for Proficiency) since 2015

I am in a career transition process aiming to dedicate myself exclusively to translating. I speak Spanish, understand Italian and French but I sincerely admire the way English language sounds and its grammar.

It is definitely not enough to just know a second language in order to be a successful translator; translating is much more than that, it is meant to relay a message to the reader as if it was written in the language being read. To that end, you have to master the art of writing in both languages, especially in the target one.

I am aware that living in the United States is not a determining factor to become a good translator, but to have known and lived their culture is undeniably crucial to any translator’s career.

Therefore, I am able to offer high-quality and reliable translations, honoring deadlines and having close (via e-mail, Skype) and good relationship with my clients.

For further information about my working areas, quotes, and other related issues, please contact me at [email protected] and I will be glad to promptly answer your request.
