I am a qualified full-time translator from English to European Portuguese, born and raised in Portugal.
My love for words began early on, leading me to take a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages and Literatures (Portuguese and English Studies). Keen on spreading my linguistic knowledge, I became a language teacher, a craft I exercised for a number of years. This led me to the communications and marketing department of an international Lisbon-based law firm. Both experiences enhanced my sense of professionalism, ability to work under pressure, and search for perfection.
Today, with a postgraduate degree in Translation under my belt, a solid background in linguistics, and past corporate experience, I have the tools and knowledge to help businesses thrive in the Portuguese market.
