I hold a degree in languages (Portuguese and English) from University of Aveiro (1992-97).
I started working as a teacher, teaching English and Portuguese to teenage students and adults. Alongside, I started translating legal and business documentation.

I am a highly motivated freelance translator, dedicated to detail and perfection, adept at working independently but equally capable of working in a team environment.

I provide translation, proofreading and editing services in the following language pairs: EN-PTpt; PTpt-EN; PTbr-EN and PTbr-PTpt.

I have collaborated with different clients in various fields translating documents such as:
*articles of incorporation, bylaws, contracts, powers of attorney, financial/tax reports;
*diplomas, academic/school transcripts, CVs;
*birth/death/marriage certificates, driving licences;
* education-related texts: reports, training resources, theses, abstracts...;
*marketing-related texts: brochures, newsletters...;
*user manuals;
*mobile applications and instructions, screen protectors;
*social network websites, e-commerce;
