Bio

Certified PROs.jpg

I am an English and French to European Portuguese freelance translator, born and based in Lisbon (Portugal), with 31 years of professional experience.

In the beginning of my career, I have worked mainly with renowned publishing houses, translating and editing literature (fiction and non-fiction) and comics, and I was selected by the European Commission. More recently, I have been almost exclusively dedicated to the localization of websites, the translation of corporate documents, and the subtitling of cinema, TV shows and series, documentaries, corporate videos, and cartoons. 

All these years allowed me to work in a wide variety of fields, ranging from science to arts, from politics to sports, from psychology to astrology, from history to environment, from education to cooking, decoration, tourism, and fashion.

I offer high-quality work with attention to detail, I always meet deadlines, and I strive to continuously improve and broaden my knowledge and skills.
