Personal Information

I was born in Lisbon, Portugal and I lived there for 30 years. In 2006 I moved to Sydney, Australia, where I currently live.  I am the founder of Updated Words, which started as a team of 2 but now it is just myself. I am perfectionist and passionate about everything I do, I am always searching for ways to improve myself, so I keep investing on my professional development, by doing courses and workshops that will help me improve my skills. I also love to share my knowledge with others, so they have the same opportunities.
I love writing, politics, history, music and sports. I also like a good discussion where different points of view can be presented. I strongly believe that we will never grow as a person if we are not open to share our views and learn from others

Professional Experience

I  officially started my professional career in 2010, when I completed my Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of Linguists. Before that, I did some voluntary work for a travel agency, as training. Since then, I have been helping clients in different fields. I have worked with Air Timor SA, an airline in Timor-Leste, for about 8 years and now I am working with iTech Labs, a company that certifies games for casinos and gambling platforms online. I have also worked with a few law firms, travel agencies and translation agencies.

I have helped many private clients with the translation of all type of documents.
