Professional practices Gabriel T. Velloso endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Translation is about communication. In the global society we live in it is crucial to effectively communicate with others. That’s where Translation comes in, improving communication.

I value quality and efficiency in order to facilitate the communication process. I cultivate a commitment to my work and a meticulous attention to detail that makes every project special. I see these characteristics as competitive advantages in any work. 

The search for the most appropriate word, to convey the message in all its entirety, in all its complexity, the translation process in itself is rewarding to me. This passion is reflected in this commitment to quality both as a translator and as an interpreter.


I have been involved with the English language for 29 years now. I am familiar with its nuances and complexities and I have extensive knowledge in vocabulary, written style and grammar. I am also a native speaker of Brazilian Portuguese.

I have been working with translation professionally as a freelancer since 2002, both from and into English and Portuguese (Brazil). I worked in-house as a translator in the USA at the World Future Society, at one of Portugal's largest translation agencies, Jaba Translations, and at the Brazilian Post Office. Coupling both freelance and in-house experiences has taught me a great deal of practical translation work which, in conjunction with my bachelor's degree in Translation, gives me a very comprehensive and extensive knowledge as a translator. 

I also had many experiences as an interpreter, both in and outside Brazil. Some relevant interpreting events I worked in are: African Diaspora Conference; Lecture at the Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology (IBICT); Accompanying a NASA Astronaut: Brazilian Space Agency Press Conference - Defense Commission in the Brazilian Parliament - Meetings with the Air Force and Science, Technology and Innovation Ministries - Visit to the Brazilian Air Force Academy - Astronaut's lecture for 300 people at a private university - 2 day course/workshop on foresight and future studies.

I am also a member of the pool of interpreters, a specialized group of screened experts from the industry's database, and you can find my interpreter pool profile here:

Moreover, I have also been an English teacher both privately and in respected schools, with 10 years of experience, in places such as Berlitz and Cultura Inglesa (a local school in Brazil associated to the British Council). 

I have been involved with Foresight, Innovation and Strategy for the past 13 years. I have won the World Future Society Intern of the Year award while working there in Bethesda, MD, USA. I currently hold a post graduate degree in Foresight, Strategy and Innovation and am taking a PhD in Technology Assessment in Portugal. I have also worked for 4 years as Research Staff at the Institute of Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis of the Karlsruher Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe, Germany.

I have also been a musician for 20 years now, having released some records in Europe and South America.


Adding up all these experiences, in addition to my international experience living and working in several countries throughout Europe and the Americas further give me deeper cultural and linguistic knowledge which is crucial for finding good words and communicating well, within the translation area.

My main areas of work are Science (Social and technological and Journalism. Most specifically Technology, Foresight, Futures, Innovation, Strategy, Aerospace/Astronautics.
I have also working experience with Tourism, Marketing and Literature.

I am experienced in CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) softwares, such as Wordfast, Trados and MemoQ.

I look forward to working with you soon!

Thank you for taking your time to read this.
