Professional practices Barbara Black endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.2).

For nearly six years, I have been working in the Portuguese and English pair, successfully translating and proofreading highly technical texts from the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical industries.

In 2013, I received my English Proficiency Certificate from the University of Cambridge. 

A year later, I was awarded a scholarship from the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development to finish my studies in the UK. At the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, I was both a student and a research assistant in my field of expertise: Molecular Biology.

In 2015, I earned my BSc in Biomedical Sciences with first-class honours from the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil. There, I had the opportunity to work for the esteemed Oswaldo Cruz Foundation and be part of research teams in the fields of Neurobiology, Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology and Immunogenetics.

Since then, I have directly assisted doctors, pharmacists and principal investigators on a variety of translation projects. End-clients that I successfully translated and proofread for include renowned companies such as Gilead Sciences, Bayer and 3M. Below are examples of documents that I work with on a daily basis:

• Journal Publications

• Medical Records

• Clinical Trials

• Investigator’s Brochure

• Patient Surveys

• Laboratory Reports

If you are interested in my services and would like to request a quote, do not hesitate to get in touch. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with the information that you need. 

Client satisfaction is my ultimate goal, always.
