Degree in English/French Studies (Faculdade de Letras, University of Lisbon)

Journalist and translator in the above-mentioned fields since 1988.

As a journalist and a translator, my writing has been chiefly done in trade magazines, dealing with the trade/retail, consumer goods, consumer issues, logistics, marketing, and business/management fields. As part of my work, I’ve done press-releases handling, interviews, reporting, exhibitions and conferences coverage, opinion articles and translations.

As to the latter, I’ve done since 1988 translations and adaptations from English, French, and Spanish into Portuguese and also, occasionally, from Portuguese into English and French. I began as a journalist/translator in a trade magazines publisher and, in 2002, I took up the post of deputy editor in a management and economy portal, where I did translations/adaptations, general journalism writing and text editing. Since January 2006, I have also been regularly translating in the software and IT fields. I am a full-time freelance translator since 2006.
