Bio

About Me

I am an independent English to Portuguese translator, and I have been translating many different types of content professionally for over five years. My career started in-house, handling the translations of news articles, database entries, scientific publications, official letters and emails, and even on-site transcription and copywriting at international conferences. During this time working as a translator to a WHO Collaborating Centre, I specialized both in Business and in Public Healthcare.


I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and Economics from University of Sao Paulo (USP) – the leading university in my country –, and I have previously worked at a Real Estate development company, and, most recently, at a Banking institution, becoming familiar with the ins and outs of these industries, and well-acquainted with Accounting, Finance, and Civil Engineering terminologies. I also have a study background in applied linguistics and Portuguese grammar, which helps me produce target texts that feel natural and engaging to the reader, with fewer risks of grammatical and syntax errors.


After starting independently, I have translated manuals, scientific publications, video subtitles, book chapters, product descriptions, and other sorts of content for both translation agencies and end clients. I have also been hired to perform reviews and to analyze other translators’ quotes for projects.


I am a native Brazilian and I have always been motivated to make foreign content available to people within my country – and that is what I love about being a translator.


About my Work

Marketing, Business, and Finance

My experience translating marketing content includes product descriptions and blog posts that are SEO-friendly and enticing for readers to engage with. I have also worked with businesses that needed strategy reports translated to their Brazilian teams, and also with brochures regarding corporate social responsibility for inside usage. My economics and accounting background also enables me to assist in translating financial statements and analytical documents.


Education

I have extensive experience translating educational materials for secondary and high school grades, such as lesson plans, student handbooks, and subtitles for educational videos, on all school subjects. This made me familiar with terminologies related to chemistry, physics, and history, and with adjusting communication to a wider variety of readers.


Publications

I have experience working with translating scientific documents and papers – including medical and pharmaceutical. I am also a volunteer translator for the Ancient History Encyclopedia, with articles publicly available.


Good Writing

My writing skills are continuously refined – as languages are living entities, they grow and change, Portuguese is no different. I can write using purely normative grammar (which in itself has variations according to different scholars) or use a more flexible approach, depending on the intended effect and the targeted audiences defined by the client or by the source material itself. I also have experience performing reviewing and proofreading tasks on other translators’ delivered materials, and even on assessing the quality of applicants’ quotes for a proposed project.


CAT Tools

My preferred software is MemoQ, and I can also work with SDL Trados and Smartcat. This makes me able to work with several different types of files used within the industry.
