Bio

I am a certified Portuguese<>English translator and interpreter with over 20 years' experience, and also translate from Russian and Spanish into English. A passionate linguist, I am skilled and experienced in both written translation and interpreting, as well as audiovisual translation/transcription and proofreading. 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.

I was born and raised in the UK, but moved to Brazil after graduating in Portuguese, and speak and write Brazilian Portuguese as if native. Over the years I have specialised in legal and technical translation, but am also well-versed in several other fields including sports and television, oil & gas, logistics, health care, art and cinema.

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 own translation company, Quesco Brasil, which has Brazilian and UK offices. I provide services to all kinds of clients, from high profile multinational companies to law offices, translation agencies and individuals who need an academic text or CV translated. My company also maintains a network of translators to provide services for various other languages, including all European languages as well as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Hindi and Arabic.


In addition to traditional language services 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.
