Translation for good starts here.
Vítor Cortes is a professional European Portuguese Translator working as a freelancer for nearly a decade, and who caught fire translating the instant he saw the lost in translation checkable fact in a clinical setting in his final year as an internship medical student in Australia. Just as important as healthcare, language is overriding too.
Back again to Portugal, he started his MA in Languages and Translation and applying his acquired medical and translation tools to solve health problems and improve the quality of lives in the form of regulations, devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures, systems, and computer-supported information systems.
After having completed his MA with success, he applied for a Portuguese Translator job position at the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union.
As an In-House Translator (2006–2011) he has worked in the domains of education, employment, culture, transport, research and innovation, social affairs, environment, energy, chemistry, property rights, law, budget and finance, foreign and security policy, police and judicial cooperation, public health, and consumer protection.
In addition to keeping projects moving, submitting deliverables on time, and ensuring a seamless experience for all parties involved in the linguistic work, he is a fanatical loving of filmmaking, being his favourite scene so far Nicole Kidman (as Virginia Woolf) and Stephen Dillane’s (as Leonard Woolf) train station scene in The Hours and his favourite soundtrack the Interstellar best original scorenothing beats that pipe organ deepness.
