Professional practices Nuno Couto endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm a 100% native Portuguese speaker and I was born and raised in Porto.

I've started working in the translation industry in the summer of 1997.

I translate from EnglishFrench and Spanish into European Portuguese.

I have 23 years of full-time experience in translation. I also provide editing, proofreading and linguistic sign-off (LSO) services.

When you choose me to work on your documents, you benefit from my Portuguese language writing skills, which are excellent. I always match the style of my output to the document you require, providing effective communication of your message.

I'm obsessive about quality and will not deliver until I'm fully satisfied with the deliverables – but fully respecting the agreed deadlines.

My main areas of expertise are:

▪ Software/games localization – PC, Mac, Nintendo, iPhone, Android

▪ Computer Science & IT – user manuals and training manuals, websites, newsletters and e-mails

▪ Legal & Financial (general) – contracts, tender documents, annual reports and accounts

▪ Advertising & Marketing – press releases, sales flyers, magazine articles, multimedia presentations

▪ Environment & Ecology – development reports, environmental impact reports

▪ Travel & Tourism – Portuguese and foreign culture and history, gastronomy, oenology

▪ Academic papers and articles – especially patents, medical devices and psychology


I'm based in Porto, the second biggest city in Portugal, which was elected Best European Destination in 2012, 2014 and 2017.

Porto is famous for some delicious foods, including "Francesinhas" (a very successful and inspired adaptation of the French Croque Monsieur sandwich), "Tripas à moda do Porto" (Porto-style Tripes), as well as Port wine (even though this is produced throughout all the magnificent Douro region).

FC Porto, my city's main football club, has won several European titles, namely the UEFA Champions League in 1987 and 2004, the UEFA Europa League in 2003 and 2011, the UEFA Super Cup in 1987 and the Intercontinental Cup in 1987 and 2004.
