About me
I am a Portuguese translators/reviewer professionally qualified and with considerable experience in Technical Translations, all kinds of Operating Instructions and Manuals, especially for the Automotive Industry, the IT Industry and for the Telecommunication Areas.

In fact I have several years of experience in fields like the Automotive Industry, Machinery Industry, Construction Industry, IT Industries, Multimedia Games and Telecommunications. All over the years I have accumulated satisfied on-going customers such as Audi, BMW, Ford, Honda, Hitachi, Imtec, Kubota, MAN, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Opel, BenQ, Dell, Epson, Fujitsu, HP, Kyocera, Logic3, Polaroid, Samsung, Sendo, SGS, Upxus, etc., either directly or through other large multinational translation/localization companies.

I use the most well known industry standard software, in conjunction with the many specialized tools required in the localization industry such as Visual Basic or C++, and regularly use SDL Trados 2007 as the main CAT tool, but are also fully conversant with other translation tools such as SDLX, Transit or WordFast. This increases the quality and reduces translation costs. Besides that, I always proof-read my translations (from both a technical and linguistic point of view). Quality is my priority.

My membership of the ATA (American Translators Association), APT (Portuguese Association of Translators) and SLP (Portuguese Language Society) ensures adherence to a strict code of conduct, promoting the very highest standards and guaranteeing maximum professionalism.

I understand the importance of offering my clients a cost-effective translation service and realize that the translation world is a very price-sensitive one, but above all, I am strongly committed to offering my clients cost-effective solutions that do not compromise quality. Although I try to use a number of tactics to stay competitive from a price standpoint, focusing on the field of specialization and having a liability insurance for translation errors, quality is my major priority.

My rapid reactions, professionalism and the quality my services have won me the confidence and faithfulness of a number of large and small companies. I would be very pleased if you too became one of my clients.
