Portuguese-English Translation

30


30 per unit Virtual OK

I will translate any document of 500 words or fewer from Brazilian Portuguese to US or Canadian English or vice-versa. If you need more than 500 words translated, please order more than 1 unit.

I'm familiar with American and Canadian spelling, and have knowledge of the Chicago Manual of Style (among others), should your document need to abide by a style manual.

Please note that I am unable to translate from English to Portuguese from Portugal; I only translate to and from Brazilian Portuguese, as the latter is my native tongue.

I have experience translating websites, letters, and legal documents. Please note that while I can translate legal documents, I am not a certified translator. You would need either a certified translator and/or a notary public for such documents to be considered actually legal.

Training & Qualifications


I am a native Brazilian who has lived most of my life outside of Brazil. I left Brazil when I was 15 years old, and learned English by the "sink or swim" method. I was put into a high school for 6 hours a day where no one spoke my language, and in 2 months, I was speaking English fluently, albeit with a heavy accent. Over the last 20 years, I have all but lost my accent, and most people don't know I'm not a native English speaker when they first meet me. I thus speak both English and Portuguese with the same level of fluency (though my English writing skills are more advanced, as I completed high school, university, and a post-graduate degree in English).

I would be happy to translate any document from Brazilian Portuguese to US or Canadian English or vice-versa. Please give me two weeks to complete any translations.

Availability & Preferences


My schedule is flexible, but it may take a day or so for me to respond to your message.

About Mariana Abeid-McDougall

𝐁𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐥/𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: * I do not under any circumstances promote MLM products; please do not request my services for this. * I am on Simbi to barter. Please do... not contact me with the intent of funneling me to your paid products. ___ 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗠𝗲 I'm an experienced freelance writer and editor who loves to meet people, barter, and help others. I'm also an avid traveller, a happily married wife since 2006, and a homeschooling mother of three children born in 2010, 2012, and 2014. I have an extensive background in various fields, as I have been working since 1997 in various jobs, often simultaneously. I have been a lifeguard, an adult swimming lessons instructor, a retail sales clerk, a call centre operator, a teacher, a Registered Kinesiologist, a personal trainer, a writer, an editor, and the list goes on. I also served 7 years in the Canadian Naval Reserves as a military clerk. Aside from my professional experience, my travel experience is also extensive. I've lived in 3 different countries, and our family has had the chance to do some wonderful travelling. Before we had children, my husband and I toured for 2 months around Canada and the US, sightseeing during the day and swing dancing at night (swing dancing is how we met). We cycled 557 kilometers with our kiddos when they were 6, 4, and 2. And we spent 9 months between 2018 and 2019 travelling in an RV all over the US and Canada. I'm interested in a variety of things, and my services on here reflect that. If you've ever heard the term "renaissance soul," "multipotentialite," or "scanner," that's me. I hope that you'll find a service that'll be useful to you among my offerings, and I look forward to trading with you.show more
