About me
I have been an English > Portuguese freelance translator for the last 32 years. I started translating during my graduation in Electronic Engineering, and since then I have translated more than 20 million words.

I am able to translate around 20,000 words a week, and to edit/proofread around 40,000 words a week.

My equipment is a Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz, with 320.0GB of hard disk, 2 GB of RAM and a cable modem. The software I normally use is MS Office XP, Windows Vista, Microsoft Internet Explorer 7, PageMaker 7, Quark X-Press 5.0, Adobe Acrobat 7, OmniPage Pro 12.0, etc.

About CAT tools, I use SDL TRADOS 2007 and 2007, DejaVu 3 and DejaVu X, and Wordfast for almost all translation jobs performed.
