Having worked as a nurse (1984-1996) at the Montreal GeneralHospital gave me a lot of experience with the medical jargon and I thoroughly enjoy this type of work. My main clients are Med Bridge Services - Healthcare, 3M, Vascular Solutions, Arizant Healthcare, Cargo cosmetics, Avon, Hasbro, Smiths Medical, Subtitling, TV Documentary - RTP, Augustine Biomedical, Uroplasty, Cerus, Invacare, Zimmer Spinal, Madajet, Kerr, Psychology texts & others. I've translated over 150 thousand words of MSDS information. These projects are forwarded to me through large translation agencies.
I'm an active collaborator (with a monthly health related article) for”Jornal das Cortes": http://jornaldascortes.no.sapo.pt/. Creative writing is another one of my passions, I recently won first prize. I collaborated on the translation of Quantum Leaps into Portuguese.
I consider myself to be an extremely honest and reliable person, doing my best to maintain the accuracy of the original message! I'm perfectly fluent in English (NS)/Portuguese (NS)/French. I don't translate into Brazilian Portuguese or French, but can easily translate from these idioms! I've translated market research, survey responses from Brazilian Portuguese»English several times for Languagetrainers.
The only important requisite that I have is to be given enough time in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
Presently I can translate 2000 words/day and my price is of ,07â‚¬ per word or 15 Euros/hour.
I have an intensive Translation course from McGill (for medical staff) and another from ISLA, Portugal, along with a 48 year life story (including all of my schooling) of English, Portuguese and French language use!
