Born and living in Porto Alegre, Brazil, I’m a translator of English, German, Spanish and French. My native tongue is Brazilian Portuguese.

I'm graduated in Law (2006) by the Law School of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and in Translation (German and Portuguese, with highest honors/summa cum laude) (2011) by the Languages Institute of that same university.

I'm certified as fully proficient (C2 level) in English and German by Cambridge University and Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes, respectively.

During my education I've also had some contact with Hebrew and Italian.

I have wide experience in texts of the following areas:

- Literature (prose and poetry)
- Music
- Legal
- Accounting and finance
- Management/marketing/sales
- Commercial correspondence/reports
- News/informative
- Technical (limited - please consult)

Member of Translators Without Borders (TWB) since 2013.

My personal interests are classical music and literature, and I have a sound command of the corresponding terminology. My main professional focus is on publishing, specifically regarding classical literature.

As translator, proofreader, or copy-editor, I've worked on more than 50 books and textbooks, published by established Brazilian publishing houses.
