Postgraduate IoLET Diptrans (Diploma in Translation - Distinction awarded)
Certificate of Proficiency in English by the University of Cambridge
Bachelor in Communications

Work experience in the areas of Communications, Publicity, Audiovisual, Finance, Linguistics, Business & Administration, Market research, Media and Journalism.

I have lived, worked and studied in the UK as well as in Brazil. I do this work because I truly enjoy it: each assignment is a challenge and an opportunity to learn new things. Research is very important, as I take pride in being meticulous and dynamic.

Due to my bilingual family environment (as well as splitting my time living between Brazil and the UK) my knowledge of both languages and their cultural relevance is accurate and up-to-date.

Keywords to define my work:

The focus is on translating meaning rather than just words. It is essential that the texts read naturally in the target language, as it is to convey style and nuance. I work in a systematic and organised manner, performing macro and micro revisions as well as extensive research.

In order to ensure quality, when translating to English I work alongside a native British proofreader. We offer combined services at really competitive rates.
