English to Portuguese: Corn: Substance of Our Life
General field: Science
Detailed field: Food & Drink
Source text - English
The supermarket does not by any means represent all the uses of corn in our culture. If you live in North America - and even very possibly if you do not - the house you live in and the furniture in it, the car you drive, even the road you drive on, all depend for their very existence on corn.
Translation - Portuguese
O supermercado não representa, de forma absoluta, todas as utilizações do milho em nossa cultura. Se você vive na América do Norte - e mesmo se você muito possivelmente não viva lá - a casa em que você habita e a mobília dentro dela, o carro que você dirige, até a estrada sobre a qual você dirige, tudo depende, para sua própria existência, do milho.

Bio

I have been translating projects from diverse companies related to fields such as medicine, sports, nutrition, and literature. I also dedicate time to the tutoring of individuals interested to improve their language skills for several exams such as TOEFL, GMAT, and others, and to my satisfaction, all of them have been plainly successful.

I have worked with physicians from several top-rated hospitals in the country and managed to help them through their process of improving language skills (EFL) and also by translating projects involving physiology, cardiology and medical topics in general.

I have translated official documents and a revising editor for companies in the textile and plastics industry which definitely improved my translation skills in this specific area.

Literature and History have also been my target of inspiration as I have read many books and articles about geopolitics and world History, which have been useful in order to prepare my own background for my future plan of publishing my own books.
