YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

I have worked in the Translation and Interpreting field since 1980. I am ABRATES and ATA Certified for Portuguese into English translations and I also work from English into Portuguese (Brazilian).

As a conference interpreter, my languages are English and Portuguese (A) and Spanish (C).

Training is a constant for any professional who wants to stay current. I frequently take refresher courses, attend seminars and give workshops on different subjects, in both English and Brazilian Portuguese.
