Passionate for languages and translation, I am a professional English/Spanish-Brazilian Portuguese translator, proofreader and editor, having accumulated a good number of job experiences with a variety of clients, including agencies, companies, NGOs and individuals.
I've been working as a translator/reviewer since late 2008 and my experience mostly lies in the life sciences sphere [projects in Pharmacology, Adverse Event Management and Reporting, Drug Monitoring Questionnaires, Clinical Trials, Surveys, Medical and Veterinary Instruments/Equipment, including User Manuals].
Over the last years, I've also worked in the translation/review of management/administration as well as animal welfare-related contents, and these domains have been included in my list of expertise areas - I currently estimate I have translated/reviewed nearly 3,5 million words in my entire career.
To reinforce my professional attitude and spirit, I've recently become a member of the Brazilian Association of Translators (Abrates). I don't mind working on weekends and holidays (usual working hours: 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (GMT -3 - BRT).
Last, but not least, I value efficiency and quality above all and I'm always open to establish new partnerships.
You can find my professional information on Proz, LinkedIn and my website. No other directories have been authorized to publish my information.
