Thank you for taking a look at my profile.

I'm a Brazilian translator/lawyer living in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil and I specialize in law, history, literature, tourism, culinary and many other areas.

I lived in the United Kingdom (England and Scotland) in 2005, where I learned to speak fluent English.

In England I studied at Harrow House International College, where I got my degrees in Hospitality and Tourism Sandwich Course and English Language Tuition Course. And I also got my NCFE Certificate in Employment Skills.

In Scotland I worked as General Assistant in a hotel located in Laurencekirk.

In 2010 I graduated from Law School (Cândido Mendes University - Brazil) and I worked as a lawyer in some law offices.

In 2017 I got a degree as a translator (EN/PT) at Estácio de Sá University (Brazil), and in 2018 I got an associate degree in Legal Translation, so I've been working as a translator since then.

Please, feel free to contact me at: [email protected]

Best regards,

Maria Laurino
