I am a native Portuguese (Portugal) speaker and certified Portuguese/English interpreter with university translation training and work experience. I have been writing game reviews for 18 years, have managed an all-female gaming site in the early 2000's, and covered several E3 shows in the past. In addition, I have over 10 years of experience in customer service and retail, light office administration duties, as well as in writing, editing and web content management. I am used to working remotely alone or coordinating a team, and to follow deadlines. I believe my experience with different types of settings, people and documents over the years can be a valuable asset in addition to my language, writing and editing skills.
