My name is Anni and I am a Portuguese > English translator/proofreader and I would like to offer my services as a freelancer.
I have five years of translating 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.
I have experience in translating various texts, including: teaching manuals, institutional material for charity projects, annual reports, outreach e-mails, general academic papers, birth and marriage certificates, council incident reports, academic medical texts, sports articles, software, advertising material for tourism agencies, contracts, government/public sector documents (law/legal, medical), police witness statements etc,and my main areas of expertise are environment, market research, media and legal.
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.
Please find attached my CV with further, more detailed information including rates and references. Also attached is a recommendation letter and a copy of my MA certificate.
I look forward to hearing from you.
