Bio

Challenge, commitment and job satisfaction are keywords for me since I have been in the language field for over 22 years now, either as a Cambridge-certified EFL/ESP Professor or as a tireless translator, reader and researcher in cultural and foreign language matters, having a good command of both spoken and written English and Brazilian Portuguese languages.

I have translated a few books on language learning, teacher’s training and web-related subjects. Furthermore, I have been working as a freelancer on over 1000 translation / editing / proofreading projects covering such subject fields as IT, HR, engineering, electronics, user manuals, marketing, metrology, tourism, management, accounting, certificates, automotive, medical, chemicals, patents, e-learning, finance, business, videogames, safety, psychology, etc.

Desafio, compromisso e satisfação no trabalho são
palavras-chave para mim, pois venho atuando na área de idiomas há mais de 22
anos, 11 dos quais como professor universitário de  EFL/ESP, e como tradutor autônomo certificado pela Universidade de Cambridge (Reino Unido), tendo um ótimo domínio dos
idiomas inglês e português, tanto falado quanto escrito. Traduzi alguns livros
sobre aprendizagem de idiomas, formação de professores e assuntos correlatos.
Além disso, já concluí mais de 960 projetos de tradução/revisão/edição que
abrangem diversas áreas, como: RH, engenharia, eletrônica, manuais de usuário,
metrologia, marketing, turismo, administração, ciências contábeis,
certificados, automóveis, medicina, produtos químicos, patentes, e-learning,
finanças, negócios, videogames, segurança, psicologia, etc.
