Bio

I am a Portuguese native speaker, with a degree in Portuguese Studies and a Post-degree in Translation. I have been working as a translator since 2001 and as a proofreader since 2000.



Due to my educational background, the areas connected with Social Sciences,  Literature, Culture, Gastronomy, Tourism and Medical are those where I like working the most. In my opinion, those fields allow us to know better other cultures and oblige the translator to make, most times, a deep investigation and research about some facts and descriptions and that is what passionate me more in Translation: the possibility of creating an alliance between two cultures, two languages, two worlds (the source and the target one) without distorting any.

Furthermore, I have already acquired a lot of experience in this field, mostly because I have already participated in some big international projects.

Moreover,
since 2017, I have been participating in a project for the European Union,
translating texts for the Official Journal of EU and also articles, in a total
of more or less 97.000 words.

As a
Proofreader, my most important client is Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, for
which I have been working for more than 20 years. Most of the books that I
proofread are scientific and academic ones. 

I consider myself a very organized, dedicated, responsible and ethic person, who always respects the given deadlines, with an excellent cultural and linguistic knowledge, passionate for what I do (especially in these kind of fields) and with a strong desire of being always learning new things and answering to new challenges.

You can also know more about me and my experience through my CV or by consulting my profile at Proz (http://www.proz.com/profile/615568).
