Professional practices mirian terra endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I have been working as a translator for 6 years (or if considering the time I’ve been studying Translation almost 10 years). I am an Electronics Technician, graduated at the local institute for education, science and technology (IFGo) and then I graduated in Translation Studies at Universidade de Brasília (UnB). Having a degree in Translation made a plus not only in my knowledge of English language, but also as a translator. At the university, we are encouraged to translate several kinds of texts (economy, law, science and literature) English-Portuguese-English. So during this time, I could have an idea of in which area I would specialize later. I had the chance of working at the Brazilian Science and Technology Ministry where I was in contact with various environmental guidelines.

After my graduation, I kept in touch with this field of knowledge translating/proofreading papers/articles to some graduate students of Geology field (remote sensing mainly, but also sedimentology). I have translated some articles related to politics and they are hosted at a Brazilian website (it can be mentioned upon request). I’ve also worked in some medicine areas (cardiology, oncology and psychiatric ones only). I am translating in these areas so far.

Lately, I am specializing mainly at Computers/IT field and Electronics, translating/proofreading some texts in these areas for some translation agencies and other clients.

Thanks for visiting.
