Mother tongue English
Fluent Spanish and Portuguese
Read/written French, Cape Verdean Creole
I am a native speaker of US English, and I lived in Europe (Southern Portugal) during my adolescence. While in Europe, I acquired fluency in Portuguese and Spanish. In addition, I studied French while abroad, and it was a major course of study, along with Spanish, when I entered college in the US.
I have been back in the United States for ten years now, and I work as a professional interpreter and freelance translator. I work with English, Spanish, and European/African Portuguese, primarily, but can translate from Brazilian Portuguese and French to English, also.
I recently translated the advertising/informational materials for a non-profit group that focuses on computer technology and literacy, Free Geek (http://www.freegeek.org/). I have also been selected to provide new translations for their website and review the existing versions in Spanish.
If you require proofreading in English, I would be happy to assist with corrections, both according to standard grammar and according to current colloquial or professional use of the language. I have European and US citizenship, should there be any concerns over work permits or other legal matters.
My rates may be flexible depending on volume of work and other considerations.
