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.
Professional translator with over a decade of experience working with top multinational retailers and worldwide entrepreneurs. I am also a copywriter and a proofreader, with a degree in Advertising.
For me, anything less than full and complete customer satisfaction is unacceptable. Far beyond informing, I seek to amaze.

Professional freelance translator and reviewer working from English and French into Brazilian Portuguese, and also from Portuguese into English.
My name is Álvaro Antonio da Luz and I'm a freelance translator and interpreter from Curitiba, Brazil with 9 years' experience across a wide range of fields. I also provide proofreading and DTP services. I have previously worked for 6 years as an EFL teacher, pedagogical consultant and school manager.
I have always had a deep curiosity of foreign languages and their cultures. Being an avid reader from my early childhood, I left my musical aspirations aside (I also played the piano from early on) to pursue a college degree in English.
Nowadays I balance my careers as a translator/interpreter and as a music and theatre producer in a theatre company in Curitiba.

Hello, I'm Pedro Alves, a native Portuguese translator.
I've been a full-time translator for over four years and I consider myself a very experienced professional, capable of engaging on any project.
I've worked with a few notable companies, such as Panasonic, Bechtel, IQ Option, and more recently, Tetra Pak.
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.
