Portuguese to English Translator






Profile registered on 08 Aug 2014
Profile last updated on 15 Sep 2017

I am a native speaker of English.

My minimum rate is 0.05 Euro per source word.

But I prefer to work at 0.09 Euro per source word.

I charge for my services at least 20 Euro per hour.

And my minimum charge per document is 15 Euro.

I have obtained an official translator / linguist degree.

I have been working as a translator since 2008.

I provide the following services: Translation, Proofreading, Market Research.

By today, I have translated about up to 10,000 words.

I use the following tools: SDL Trados.

I am best in the following fields: Advertising & Public Relations, Arts and Humanities, Business / Commerce (General), Computer Software, General, Government / Politics, History, Industry and Technology (General), Law (Contracts).

I am a sworn translator.

I am available for work Full week, including weekends.

I can provide you with references on request.

I have used every job, every opportunity for travel and a lot of the free time I have had since I was 13 to use and improve my linguistic abilities. I only studied Arabic and Spanish to degree level and yet I volunteered to translate a friend's sci-fi novel from French to English because I knew it would be challenging, great fun and beneficial all at once. I took advantage of my knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese to read through and summarise a 100,000 word document explaining how to register software for use in the Brazilian market and I translated into Arabic a proposal for one of the largest contracts ever negotiated between a British company and the Saudi government, that translation being applauded by one of the most influential men in Saudi Arabia, to whom it was addressed.

I name all these examples not to be arrogant, but to showcase my skills and how I have used my circumstances to hone those skills. I am a naturally inquisitive person and being a linguist has only heightened that interest. What you will get with me is someone who enjoys a new challenge and delivers results fast. I have enjoyed my post-degree employment immensely, but I know that translation is my real calling and I would like to fulfil it through working for AETS.

What you will gather from this letter is that I have a raw talent for learning and using foreign languages and it is my sole desire to harness that to do work that I truly love and that improves me at the same time. There really is nothing more anyone can ask from a career in my opinion.
