About me
I have been translating both from Portuguese into English and from English and French into Portuguese for more than 16 years. I've specialized in Literature, Journalism, Social Sciences and academic texts but I also work in Finance (online banking/trading), Law (general) and Tourism.
I've worked for more than 17 years in an international research association where I had the opportunity of collaborating in the editing, translation and proofreading of journals and book collections.
My most relevant project so far was the translation of a Portuguese newspaper for the project: Digital Bilingual (Portuguese/English) Edition of Correio de Africa [Africa Mail] Newspaper (1921-24) with Scholarly Apparatus (PT-ENG). This project has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor (USA).
I've translated a novel for a Portuguese author (PT-ENG) and a book on human behavior (ENG-PT).
I am passionate about my work, organized and thorough.
I am also an avid reader, a creative writer and a keen traveler.
