In the wake of Portugal’s accession to the European Community in 1986, we started out in 1985 in Brussels, Belgium, as a small society (a translator cooperative) of Portuguese translators (only European Portuguese native speakers). After 30 years in Belgium, we have recently moved to Portugal. We are now a two women’s enterprise. This small team of highly specialized translators translate only to their mother tongue in order to offer a final product that is of the best quality and that will live up to your expectations. We cover other language combinations as well (always to and from European Portuguese).
