I am a professional conference interpreter and translator trained at Leeds University. My language combinations in interpreting are Portuguese <> English, and French, German > Portuguese (my mother tongue). As a translator I translate from EN, DE, FR and SP into PT. Prior to devoting myself full time to interpreting and translation, I gained a doctorate in literature and philosophy and previously studied language and literature at BA and MA level.
During my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I gained extensive experience in translation and language teaching. I taught Portuguese as a second language for various schools and companies in Rio de Janeiro (including Baukurs, Thyssen Krupp, and the German television channels, ARD and ZDF), and worked as a proofreader and translator from English, French and German in to Portuguese for publishing houses in Brazil such as Sextante, Nova Fronteira, and private clients.
In the past six years I have lived in France, Germany, and the UK and am very enthusiastic about living and working with people from different cultures, areas and backgrounds.
