About me
I was born in Brazil where I lived on and off for 15 years. I have been living in the U.S. also on and off since 1979 and therefore, I speak fluent English without an accent with full comprehension of the American language and culture. I also lived in Mexico and Argentina for three years, where I attended the local schools, learning fluent Spanish, both spoken and written.

I have been working as a professional translator for a learning software company since 2007. I have a good working knowledge of SDL Trados. I am flexible, reliable, curious and continually pursuing self-learning opportunities with a love for new topics and challenges. I am a localization specialist for software, hardware, web sites and some IT related subjects. But my fields of experience and interests include also: history, travel and tourism, literature, media, movies, advertising, among others.

Besides working with the English – Brazilian Portuguese language pair, I can easily work with the reverse language pair Brazilian Portuguese - English.

I can also work with text revision, text comparison, and being a graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, narration and dubbing.


I am looking for a remote translator position and/or assignments. Localization of software, web site and IT related subjects would be my perfect fit, as well as tourism and travel, although any of my areas of interest would be challenging and fulfilling.
