10+ years' experience in the language industry

I’m a professional translator working from English and Spanish into Portuguese with over 10 years' experience in the language industry. I’m also a teacher of English and Spanish.

A native speaker of European Portuguese with a lifelong passion for languages, I consider myself to have exceptional writing abilities, both in a technical and creative way. I’m quality-driven and strive for perfection at all times. For me, even the smallest of details matter.

A career of 6 years as a commercial manager in a jewellery company allowed me to develop great communication and leadership skills as well as acquire deep understanding of the jewellery, marketing, retail, and employee management sectors. I also have previous work experience in the fields of tourism, retail and fashion. I am a home-gardening and food enthusiast and have been an experienced home cook for 15 years.

My education, work experience and personal interests have provided me with knowledge in a variety of subjects which can be applied in my specialisations.
