Professional practices Thais Maria Lips endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
A professional linguist and cross-cultural consultant working mainly with the language pairs English < > Portuguese as a translator and interpreter. I have developed a long-lasting business relationship with direct clients and many translation agencies, but I am always looking forward to expanding my portfolio. I also translate from French and Spanish into English and/or Portuguese.

I specialize in legal, marketing and social sciences translation, delivering an average of 400K words per year. As an interpreter, I have worked over 600 hours and specialize in conference interpreting.
