I have lived and worked in Portugal as a Translator and a teacher of English as a Foreign and Second language for over 35 years in an International School as well as Language schools.

During this period I have also done a wide variety of translation work in various fields - Medical, Landscape Architecture, History, CVs and other documents, as well as Nutrition and Health and Alternative therapies.

I do proofreading/correction to make your translations sound as natural as a native English speaker. 

Keywords: children's books, novels, landscape architecture, food & nutrition, teaching, social issues, good knowledge of Portuguese culture and colloquial Portuguese, rock music
