I am a professional freelance translator working full time since 2001 and a native speaker of European Portuguese. Therefore, I work exclusively with this language variant.

I am highly experienced in several subjects ranging from IT, computers, websites, client support systems, and home appliances, to marketing, design and architecture, tourism, history, arts and political and administration issues.

Professional commitment:

Professionally, I try to maintain a consistent high quality in my work and in order to do that I work with just a few clients and I ensure I can meet the deadlines when accepting work. Accepting every work proposal just because I'm a freelance worker does not correspond to my professional commitment or to what I believe our profession should be. In fact, most of my clients have been working with me for 10 years or more. Some of the reasons for that are: (i) I'm good working as a team (which also includes not trashing other people's work to get jobs or accepting that from colleagues); (ii) I try to privilege quality over income (in most situations I try to accept interesting jobs that add to my professional know-how rather than focusing in well paid jobs); (iii) I don't accept jobs I am not qualified to do; (iv) I offer the same professional attitude I demand from my clients - on-time deliveries, politeness and respect for the professional and personal circumstances of each parties.
