I am a native Portuguese speaker and I have full proficiency in English. I have successfully completed dozens of translations and transcriptions projects from American English to Brazilian Portuguese and vice-versa. These translations include company websites, scientific articles, short videos, among others. I also co-authored a book chapter published by an editor from New York (see attached media). I have more than 10 years of experience using English consisting of 5 years as an English teacher, 5+ years as a translator and transcriber and 2 years living in California. In addition, I have experience in conducting interviews and training in English.
