About me
I have been working with translation of technical documents like manuals and also academic papers. I also have some experience with interpreting (simultaneous in conferences and consecutive in meetings or workshops).
I have worked in projects with Marcopolo (a plastic composite, bus and truck parts manufacturer) and Copel (for a power plant project).
Recently I have worked as an interpreter at the Cop8 in Curitiba and in some events at the FIEP (Federação da Indústria do Estado do Paraná).
Translation of manuals for Lyon Soft Corp., General Electric and VR.
At the moment I am about to finish a specialization course on Translation Studies at USP (Universidade do Estado de São Paulo).
I am very much interested in working with literary translation.
