Professional practices MartinPorto endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
After having spent many years living and working overseas, we, my Indian wife, daughter and I decided to settle here in Porto, Portugal.

During my time overseas, I gathered extensive knowledge in many areas of engineering, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, prototyping, production engineering, and specialized machinery.

I have also worked in shipping, mostly dry dock work, either in engineering, or as interpreter.
Whilst living in France, I worked for an engineering company producing specialized machinery and production lines.
I started within this group company in the engineering and prototyping department. As time progressed and exports grew, I became responsible for dealing with foreign clients, acting as interpreter and translator to foreign delegations, and in-house translation work.
I have an extensive knowledge of computers, and technology in general, and am interested in computers, software, electronics, physics, and cosmology.
I have an extremely well equipped office, backups of all hardware. Software backups are also taken very seriously.
