My name is Mariana and I am a native Portuguese (PT-PT) translator with 6 years of in-house experience. I specialize in the healthcare, medical and pharmaceutical fields. As an avid gamer, I am also looking for opportunities in the gaming localization industry.

My experience as an in-house translator and reviewer has provided me with an extensive knowledge on several CAT and QA tools, such as Trados Studio, MemoQ, Memsource and xBench. I am also very familiar with the QA/QC procedures carried out by most agencies, which allows me to provide high quality translations, while reducing the amount of follow-up steps necessary before the final delivery.

Please do not hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions. I will provide my CV upon request.
