I am currently working on my M.S in Media Management at The New School in New York City. This along with my BA in Mass Communication from undergrad makes me a strong worker with great knowledge in both the marketing and production aspects of media. Along with my education I possess nearly 4 years of internship experience ranging from promotions and marketing to IT work. Between my professional and educational experience I have and currently accumulated, I feel I can become a strong addition to any team.
Develop and manage multimedia projects and education for large and small organizations using various methods including interactive courses, video and games. Advanced technical knowledge in AS3 and Air development with back end tie ins to PHP SQL JSP and ASP. Motion Capture technology skills and I own my own motion capture studio for human interaction development and animation. Currently I am manager of multimedia development for one of the largest financial brokerages in the country, developing and managing development of financial education.
I would like to introduce myself as an experienced linguist working as a translator, proofreader/QA professional and experienced localization tester. I am, first and foremost, a native Portuguese translator that boasts a full grasp of European Portuguese and a deep understanding of Brazilian Portuguese. I have a high level of fluency/full command of the English language including a deep understanding of the culture from having lived in the UK for several years. My academic background features several years studying both in Portugal and the UK and are relevant to the type of work I develop. I can provide good references from previous employers. With regards to my fields of expertise, I am quite knowledgeable in Information Technology, but I deal with a range of different technical translation subjects on a daily basis. Recently, I started revising patents and similar legal documents which require a great level of attention to detail. I also have a background as a transcriptionist and my 73 words-per-minute typing speed is no stranger to that mark. I have recently started providing voiceover recordings for Portuguese (European and Brazilian) and English. I am confident working with the most common industry-standard software packages, such as MS Office (advanced user), Adobe Creative Suite 5 (Photoshop and Indesign in particular) and major CAT tools (SDL Trados Studio, Wordfast, MemoQ). With regards to the quality of my work, I am confident that you will not be disappointed by my meticulous ethic and the results obtained, some of which can be found below in the samples section. I look forward to your contact! :-)
