Bio
I have a background in History: graduation and Masters.
I worked as an information manager at The Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (1996-2000), where occasionally I had to translate scientific news and articles, and this was how I got expertise in sciences.
Since 2003, I have been working as a professional translator for several clients, including pharmaceutical industries, academic publications, articles in scientific journals, always English or Spanish to Portuguese.
