Bio

I am a Portuguese to English language translator, hailing from Goa, a former Portuguese colony, with a Masters (MA) degree in Portuguese Literature and Culture. I additionally also hold many certifications and degrees related to language proficiency. I worked with a multinational firm as a Portuguese language specialist handling back-office Work Force Administration operations in Latin America and Portugal, for 3 and a half years. I worked at the Consulate General of Portugal in Goa-India as a Consular Officer for 2.5 years. I have completed a Masters degree in International Studies from ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon, Portugal with a focus on anthropology. I have published a research paper in the Interdisciplinary Journal for Portuguese Diaspora Studies titled "The Forgotten Community, “the Siddis of Uttara Kannada”: How the Portuguese Indian Ocean slave trade produced a community of Indians of African descent. 

I work with a variety of domains. However, I specialize in certificate/CV/License translations, Academic Transcripts, Diplomas, Property Descriptions and Registration, Business Contracts, Employment Contracts, SAP-related documents, mining documents and anthropology related documents. I preferably translate documents from Portuguese to English. However, depending upon the text, I also often carry out translations from English to Portuguese. 




"Translation for me is a passion. I often find myself translating speech and text unconsciously in my head while at home, at university, on the street or while travelling."
