I started my professional career as a marine biologist, specialised in fisheries, aquaculture and environment. Meanwhile, I was working as a certified associate teacher in several professional courses on fisheries and aquaculture.

Then, in 1995, I started my own company and worked as scuba diving instructor and communications officer for a really long period. This allowed me to gain experience in creating and translating all text and multimedia contents (workbooks, slideshows, website) from English, Spanish and French into Portuguese. Has a CEO of a dive centre I raise an excellent awareness of tourism, customer services, logistics and human resources along with my training in this area. Meanwhile, I also improved my skills as an Emergency and First Aid provider and trainer together with a vast experience in Paramedic Medicine (Health Care and First Aid).

That’s when I decide to become a translator. So, I finished another second degree in Linguistics (Languages and Communication), with a focus on Portuguese, English and Spanish. After a couple of years, I headed to Luxembourg where I completed a traineeship at Directorate General of Translation (European Parliament).

Now I am a full-time freelance translator while completing my Master degree in Sciences of Language.

Therefore, I am the one you need when you look for a linguistic services provider with a solid background in technical fields of expertise.

Please, don’t hesitate in contacting me.
