CV/Resume elamita (DOCX)
Portuguese and English native speaker, an avid reader and naturally talented polyglot with over 14 years' experience as a translator, writer and editor. Born in a multicultural family of diplomats, writers and journalists, I soon fell under the spell of the alphabet and succumbed to the allure of writing. Bilingual from a very tender age, I have lived and worked in a total of 9 countries on 3 three continents where English, French, Portuguese and Spanish are the official languages. This has enabled me to become proficient in all 5 idioms as well as to develop a body of linguistic, cultural, social and professional knowledge that I put to full use in my work.

As a freelancer for several professional agencies & publishers overseas allowed me to develop comprehensive multi-linguistic skills and became familiarized with literal & figurative nuances, as well as to garner a vast spectrum of industry-specific knowledge. I translate from most Portuguese and English variants and have processed documents in varied subject matters, namely: medical, pharmaceutical, finance, business, law, government, IT, engineering, software, IT, marketing, construction, architecture & design amongst others. Imaginative and creative, I particularly enjoy refining raw/poorly- written material into graceful, well-structured prose.

I often proofread and polish resumes and academic papers as well as compose press releases for big and small corporations alike. DOMUS, AREAL, ACTAR, VERBO, ARCH+, READER’S DIGEST,PLURIDIOMA, DIALECTUS, ALPHATRAD, TASCHEN, WIRED, PRADA EDIZONIONI are amongst the broad client portfolio for whom I enthusiastically tailor linguistic solutions.

Practical experience paired with accuracy and logical reasoning make me a valuable asset. A serious market-savvy multitasker, able to deliver at a competitive price-to-quality ratio
