I have been an
English and Portuguese teacher for 18 years now. I am bilingual. I taught from
North to South of Portugal, even in South Africa and England for 3
years.  I also do translations. I will translate, review, edit and proofread
documents from English to Portuguese and vice versa.

I translated,
reviewed, proofread, and edited every kind of documents (CVs, thesis, websites,
articles, diplomas,  sports related,
medical, literary, tourism related,  fashion related, medicine
related, food related, health related, etc.).

I am flexible,
professional, fast and reliable. If you have any questions, do not hesitate. If
you need samples of my work, just ask. I will answer as quickly as possible. I
have also been working on copywriting, transcreation, transcription and subtitling. Please
contact me for a free budget. 

Since becoming a freelance translator, I have worked with various major end-clients including the USA, UK and Argentina. I also provide translations on a voluntary basis for Translators without Borders. 

More than 18 years of
happy clients, do not hesitate to contact me, I am also available when you need me -I work seven days a week and I do not charge a higher rate on weekend working. Why not contact me for a quote?
