I have 20 years' professional experience as a Portuguese<>English translator and interpreter and also translate from Russian and Spanish into English. I pride myself on delivering a high quality service in a timely fashion and with a friendly attitude, guaranteeing fluent, faithful translations and proactive solutions for all my customers' needs.

My academic background is in Philosophy and Portuguese. I graduated in Portuguese from the University of Leeds in England (my native country), with my degree program focused largely on translation and including a one-year liaison interpreting course.

As a result of my personal interests and numerous work opportunities I have become well acquainted with various different fields, including sports and television, the oil & gas industry, law, logistics, health care, cinema and mechanical and electrical engineering.

I am a Chartered Linguist (Translator) and Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, and also accredited as a professional translator (Portuguese to English) by ABRATES (Brazilian Translators' Association) and an approved member of SINTRA (Brazilian Translators' Union - associated to FIT).

In 2004 I opened my translation company, Quesco Brasil, which has Brazilian and UK offices, and since then have gathered an extensive clientele and formed a team of translators to provide services for various other languages, including all European languages as well as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Hindi and Arabic.

I have also provided extensive local support and TV fixer services in Brazil and Russia, including work as the main local support contractor at the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 FIFA World Cup (in Brazil) as well as the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, where a Quesco Brasil team of 60 fixers, runners and drivers successfully supported the operations of three major broadcasters: BBC Sport, Channel Four (UK) and Channel Seven (Australia). I was also the Russian translator-fixer for the BBC's lead commentary team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

For more detailed information on projects and experiences please don't hesitate to contact me.
