I am a Portuguese-American that has been living in Lisbon for the past 11 years, working intensively in journalism and translation. I currently work for a London-based mergers and acquisitions news service and for a news service based in the U.S. Both jobs require me to scan the Internet and find news to translate into English. I also do spot translations, and regularly contribute to the Portuguese sports daily Record.
I previously worked at Dow Jones Newswires, where I also regularly contributed to the Wall Street Journal Europe - jobs that involved translating press articles and notes from Portuguese into English. Other regular translation work experience includes translating two weekly programmes for Portuguese paid cable sports channel Sport TV and translating several works from Portuguese publisher Oficina do Livro.
