Bio
I was born and grew up in Germany, learning German at school and Portuguese at home. In 1991, I moved to Lisbon where I took a University Degree in "International Relations" and a Post-Graduation in "European Studies" at the Technical University of Lisbon. After graduating, I started working as an in-house translator at a leading translation company in Lisbon. In 1999, after passing a competitive selection procedure, I was admitted as a translator at the Portuguese Translation Division of the European Parliament, Luxembourg. After that experience, I came back to Lisbon to work as Coordinator of the Translation Department of Traducta, from 2001 to 2005.

Since 2006, I run my own translation company - NYB Tradução.

My working languages are DE, EN, FR -> PT and my main translation areas are European Union, Politics, Economics, Law, Patents, Technical translations (automotive, engineering, etc.)
