TRANSLATION
As more and more businesses continue to go global, the need for professional translation services cannot be ignored or depreciated. I can translate a range of documents that businesses need to get ahead and reach a wider audience. Read the section below on my areas of expertise to know more.


PROOFREADING & REVISION
Before sending that brochure to the printer or publishing your company’s annual report, you need to make sure it has been proofread by an expert. I will take a close look at the spelling, punctuation, use of accents, grammar, terminology, and inconsistencies, to make sure your materials have no typos or errors. Reviewing services also focus on making sure the content is cohesive, the tone is right for the audience, and that there are no mistranslations.


TRANSCREATION
This means translating while recreating the original text. The message is adapted from one language and culture into a different language and culture, while maintaining its intent, style, and tone. This process is used particularly in advertising and marketing, where texts are creative and more literal translations are useless.


ADAPTATION
So you already have your documents in Portuguese but they happen to fit only the Brazilian audience? You do not need to have them translated again. Save time and money by having your documents adapted to the Portuguese market. I can help you by making your texts just right for the Portuguese consumers.

“I hired Rita as an English-to-Portuguese translator for five different projects in 2015. Not only did she deliver a high-quality translation on schedule, but she also was a pleasure to work with: responsive, conscientious, and friendly. I look forward to working with her again on future projects!”
