I have six years of translation experience and I have recently attained a masters in Translation Studies (with merit) from the University of Birmingham, UK. I also have a BA in Communication, Culture and Media from the University of Coventry.
My main areas of expertise are environment, law/legal, government, the public sector and media. I also translate in the areas of tourism, IT, business, marketing and market research. I have experience in translating various text types, including: teaching manuals, institutional material for charity projects, market research questionnaires, annual reports, outreach e-mails, academic papers, birth and marriage certificates, university transcripts, council incident reports, academic medical texts, sports articles, IT software, advertising and marketing material for tourism agencies, contracts, government/public sector documents (law/legal, medical), press releases etc.
I was born in Brazil, but as I have been living in the UK from the age of 10, I now consider my mother tongue to be English. A rare trait, but one that is a great advantage for any business, as I have the cultural knowledge needed to translate extremely well from Portuguese into English, while having the ability to understand the Portuguese source text in a native capacity.
