Portuguese is my mother tongue but due to my family background and the fact that I was brought up in a trilingual environment, I also have a near native command of the English and Spanish languages. I have also studied at graduate and post-graduate levels in Brazil and England since 1987.

As a freelance translator my clients are normally:

- International Aid Organisations and NGOs
- Civil Society Organisations
- Advocacy Networks
- Church denominations and networks
- Christian publishing houses
- International Private Organisations
- Government Departments and
- Translation Agencies.

A large proportion of my translations have been published and widely distributed in Europe, Africa and Latin America, including:

- training manuals and magazines
- academic and discussion papers
- management and consultancy reports
- country strategies and profiles
- partnership contracts
- website contents
- newsletters
- formal and informal correspondence.

You can find samples of my translation work here on my profile and/or you can request additional ones by contacting me.

- strategic planning

- environmental negotiation
- sustainable development
- fundraising
