Service Description

For the past 6 years, I have been dedicating myself to the challenging task of translation. I have completed a professional certificate from New York University in English to Portuguese Translation, and I have never ceased on looking for new ways to improve my linguistic skills. I believe a translator's ultimate responsibility is that of interfacing cultures seamlessly. Therefore, I pride myself in mastering extensive terminology research and management.
I proofread and translate documents from English into Brazilian Portuguese with special care to adequately relay the original message in vernacular trends and terminologies of the target language.
I have worked in a freelance basis for many different companies in the United States and Brazil providing market research, proofreading, consecutive interpretation and translation. My qualities include excellent concentration and discipline, needed for extended hours of work.
