Brazilian journalist, with +5 years of professional experience in ESL teaching, Public Relations, Digital Marketing and Translation Services. 3+ years of working experience with one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers (including 1-year international contract in Michigan, United States). I am constantly learning and expanding my knowledge areas in order to provide a professional English-Portuguese translation or vice versa. My translations are done manually and carefully revised before being delivered. My method of work is totally focused on converting concepts, styles and tones in the source language to equivalent ones in the target language, so even the most difficult sentences will still make sense. No Google Translate.
