I worked with medical teams for developing Medical Data Management Software, for Government Healt Care institutions an also with non-government Healt Care Foundations.

Born in Argentina, I live in Brazil since 1986 and visited many countries, mainly USA, Latin America and China.

I love translating because is a manner of to be in contact with all kinds of knowledge and cultural ways.

If I can take some profit and simultaneously learn more about any matter, any people...that's cool!!

I translated many kinds of texts, from almost all SAP operation manuals, all kinds of software manuals, many medical texts, technical papers, Pink Floyd, Beatles & etc. lyrics, some English translations of Diamond Sutra, etc. between Portuguese, English or Spanish.
