I’m a professional translator working from English and Spanish into Portuguese with 14 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.
I provide translation services delivered to high standards of professionalism, covering a wide variety of general and specialised fields. Please browse through the Services and Specialisations menus.
I have previous work experience in the fields of tourism, retail and fashion. I worked for six years as a commercial manager in a jewellery company, which allowed me to develop great communication and leadership skills as well as acquire deep understanding of the jewellery, marketing, retail, and employee management sectors.
Living in the Algarve, a popular holiday destination, has given me the opportunity to grow in a multicultural environment and develop foreign language skills from an early age. I am a home-gardening and food enthusiast and have been an experienced home cook for almost 20 years. I also take great interest in human development, environmental and animal welfare issues.
My professional and academic backgrounds as well as personal interests have provided me with in-depth knowledge in a variety of subjects which can be applied in my specialisations.
I’m constantly carrying out research and investing in Continuing Professional Development to improve my skills and keep up-to-date with the market demands. I regularly attend courses, workshops, webinars and conferences related to translation, languages and my areas of specialisation.
