I have official proficiency titles in English (CAE, grade A),
Spanish (DELE Superior) and Catalan (Level C2 Diploma). I lived three years in Paris, where I taught Portuguese at Skéma university. 

I have a course in subtitle translation (by the University Estácio de Sá) and a course in literary translation (by LabPub). I did some dubbing script translation for Netflix. My main areas are cinema, series, music, travel and tourism, history, literature, arts, journalism, life sciences, environment and journalism.

 I also work as a proofreader and I have experience as a journalist, writing for Folha de S. Paulo. I deliver translations within the agreed  deadline
and with the best quality.
