Thank you for taking a look at my profile.

My name is Cicero, and I am a Brazilian professional translator, living in the metropolitan area of São Paulo. Experienced technical translator, with thousands of translation hours from English and Spanish into Brazilian Portuguese, I have done many works for companies from the Financial Services, Oil & Gas, Information Technology, Tourism and Energy Industries, among others. My current end-clients and agencies on five continents include Microsoft, Sony, Mastercard, IBM, Levi Strauss, Expedia, Paragon and Atlantica, Pro Translating, AE Translations and Universe Translations, for instance. I also work as a volunteer for Translators without Borders and other not-for-profit organizations. The translation jobs I have done include technical document, business presentation, application localization, business contract, training material, marketing campaign, and website content.

Mainly as a matter of offering translation consistency to my clients, I developed my skills in different CAT tools, such as Wordfast, MemoQ 2015 (fully compatible with Trados), Across, and MemSource. These tools help me to deliver high quality in translating texts for my clients. Also, I am up to date as for the ISO 17100 (the new standard for companies within the translation industry, and successor to EN 15038).

Back earlier in my translator career, I had two main goals in mind. First, to share the experience in business and the academic world, I got after more than 18 years of business and teaching work. Second, I was trying to stay at home, as long as possible, to take care of my 91-year-old mother. Thanks, God, being a translator helped me to achieve these two goals.

In the past, I served as a consultant and principal at companies like Gemini Consulting, PwC Consulting, and IBM, where three official languages were spoken: English, Portuguese and Spanish, and I developed part of my language skills in these enterprises, besides the regular education on schools like Berlitz, EF, and Cel Lep. My formal translation education was performed through the Translation Course by Logos, the Italian school.

I earned my doctorate in business administration from the University of Liverpool - UK; I hold an International Executive MBA, from FIA-USP/ Vanderbilt, and an academic Master's degree in business administration from USCS. I attended many other training courses, and workshops, in countries like Brazil, France, England and the United States, which include translation.
