For me, translation is the same as an actor getting into character!

Summary

I have over 20 years experience in translation and proofreading. I translate from Portuguese and Spanish into English and from English and Spanish into Portuguese. I can also translate smaller non-technical texts from French into Portuguese or English. I do plenty of legal translations, namely contracts and other legal documentation. I consider myself to have two mother tongues, given that I was born in the UK to Portuguese parents. I have lived roughly half of my life in either country and have studied and worked in both. Following a recent period of 11 years in England, I am now living in Portugal, where I have been working as a freelance translator and teacher of English for the lat 2 years. I have excellent language and grammar skills both in English and Portuguese and speak fluently without accent in either language.
