I am native Portuguese with excellent grammar, punctuation and spelling skills and I have almost as great skills in English. My brain is definitely bilingual.
I have been a freelance Professional Translator since 2013, specializing in Business, Marketing and Social Sciences. However, I have also performed successful translations in many other different fields, such as website and app contents, legal contracts, technical manuals, automotive systems, coaching materials, among others. I am very detail and quality oriented.
Before that, I was an Administrative Assistant for over 5 years. I translated some website articles as a volunteer (since 2010) and I worked for an import/export company where I was responsible for all external communications (English/Spanish). I also performed some translation work in one of the companies I worked in.
I use SDL Trados 2011, but I always check my translations, sentence by sentence, for grammar, meaning and vocabulary use - no automatic translations! I am also very proficient in manual translations, which many clients demand in order to attain better quality.

My experience as a translator ranges from technical documents to entertainment texts. I am a Law Bachelor and I have worked as a tax advisor, writing and proofreading documents in both English and Portuguese as daily jobs. I worked also on the Brazilian localization of EA’s FIFA 18 and Need for Speed Payback. My job was to ensure all texts and audio were properly translated for the Brazilian market, checking if these assets were correctly implemented in-game and that they fitted the game style and natural flow of the language. Such experience lit my desire of building bridges between different cultures and breaking down the language barriers between them. In my case, Portuguese is spoken by more than 255 million people, of which 210 million are Brazilians alone. However, the majority of the lusophone population has no understanding of the English language, and English speakers too have generally no knowledge of Portuguese. This is an obstacle I want to help undo.
I am an English to Brazilian Portuguese translator, specialized in localization, who also offers transcription services. My mission is to fully meet my clients’ expectations, from beginning to end of the working process.
I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker, fluent in English and French and with a conversational level of German. I have an IELTS Academic Certificate and I'm currently ranked 1st out of over 12.600 test takers by the UPWORK - English To Brazilian Portuguese Translation Skill Test.
All my translations are made manually (yes, no use of Google Translator or anything like that). Instead, I use professional computer-assisted translation tools like Trados, Wordfast, OmegaT and SmartCAT that provide quality assurance, terminology consistency, spell checking and more for your project.

All this knowledge is supported by the different trainings and workshops on health, properties, vehicles, commercial and business insurances.

During this experience, I developed my writing skills redacting formal correspondence addressed to clients and partners, contracts, among other things.

I am both a Business Management and a Social Communication Bachelor, which I believe is a great advantage for understanding the corporative universe and advertisement industry. For that reason, I have knowledge of the specific vocabulary involving management, HR, finance, marketing, advertisement and so on. Besides that, I teach English to lawyers, accountants, admen and managers in Brazil as a private teacher, not only having to prepare specific classes, but also having to edit and proofread their emails and reports. Additionally, I have translated hospitality information and tour guides for a travel company. Given the growing exchange between countries, it is fundamental that services and products are accessible to an ever-wider number of people. I am interested in making all kinds of media more accessible to the general public, especially in places like Brazil, where few people speak English, although it is a widely spoken language.
Experience with translation and proofreading in technical, legal, commercial segments, but mainly in the pharmaceutical industry (protocols, brochures, compliance reports, GLP, CIOMS, certificates, among others), extensive knowledge of its terminology and technical aspects, standards and guidelines. I am always searching for improvement in the translation fields, attending congresses, lectures, and working with researches and glossaries elaboration.

Estou sempre em busca de aperfeiçoamento na área da tradução em geral, participando de congressos, palestras e trabalhando com pesquisas e elaboração de glossários.

Currently, I am on the first year of the Master's In Translation and Multilingual Communication which is providing me with advanced knowledge on editing, reviewing and, of course, translating. I have graduated high school with a major in Science and Technology which gave me the basis on biology, phylosophy and psychology, which contributed to my lexical knowledge in such areas.

Greetings. My name is Filipe Gomes. I am a native European Portuguese speaker with a good grasp of English (native level). I have a Master's degree in Translation from the University of Lisbon.
I can translate English <> Portuguese. I can also read and translate French.
My name is Valber dos Santos, I am from Brazil and 32 years old. I started to develop my linguistic skills when I had been for six months to study English in the United Kingdom, in 2006.
After my season in the UK, I had been in Morocco, North Africa, for 2 years doing part of a volunteer internship in the NGO Across Maroc and because of this I also could learn French. During my time in North Africa, I had part time freelance jobs as an interpreter because there were loads of tourist groups from Portugal to Morocco and it was the way to pay for my staying there.
I went back to Brazil in October/2008 because I wanted to build up my professional skills and I actually have a nursing technician certificate by Cruz Vermelha Brasileira (Brazilian Red Cross). I am finishing a geography teacher degree by Universidade estadual Vale do Acaraú and a bachelor degree in translation(English and French) by Federal University of Paraíba next December. I already have a professional experience as a translator by EXTRAD Project in the University. I had to translate different texts for the academic community in the University and I actually am at a Translation Competence Research Group by Federal University of Paraíba.
I wish to apply for any available vacancy as Portuguese or Spanish translator. I'm native in Portuguese, having a university degree in Portuguese/English and a master in Portuguese /Spanish. During the past 8 years I have done translation jobs either to private or public institutions.
Skype - firstname.lastname@example.org
Currently, I'm teaching in Portugal, but available to work in any project around the world. I wish to make translations part of my everyday routine, instead of being a side-job occupation. So, if in the future you have any kind of work matching my language expertise, feel free to contact me. I'm also available to do any kind of test.
I hope we can work together in the future. In case you need any further information, please contact me.
Thank you for your time.
Более 10 лет проживала в Португалии, где в 2015 году в связи с получением гражданства сдавала экзамен – португальский язык как иностранный. Мой результат 86 баллов из 100. Есть подтверждающий документ. Работала официантом в ресторане при отеле, где ежедневно общалась с коллегами на португальском языке, а с гостями и туристами на английском. Временами помогала им общаться друг с другом – вот мой своеобразный опыт устного переводчика. Некоторое время назад вернулась в Россию, здесь хочу применять знание языка на практике. Опыта профессионального переводчика у меня пока нет. К выполнению задания подхожу ответственно. В процессе работы обращаюсь к словарям и справочникам для поддержания высокого качества перевода. Отличаюсь организованностью и пунктуальностью, готовую работу сдаю в установленные сроки. В общении вежлива и доброжелательна.
