    I've studied Pharmaceutical Sciences at Oporto University and later I completed (ended among the top 5 students of my year) an MBA at Porto Business School which is one of the top 3 business schools in Portugal. During a career of over than 20 years, I've worked as technical director of a pharmaceutical laboratory and warehouse, nevertheless most of my experience is based in an International set up and related to marketing and training. Lately I have done some review of academic writing which I really loved. In the marketing area I've started as Product Manager and Trainer, after what I became a Sales&Marketing Director at different Portuguese selective perfumery distributors. Since these were small companies these functions included a wide array of tasks, such as producing the training materials, procurement and negotiating the international contracts. Since very young that I've pursued varied interests and I've practiced a lot of different activities: scouts, volunteering and in the artistic area (Dance and Music). Because, along with my studies, I've worked since I’m 16 years old, I was lucky to be able to travel a lot. This combined experience made me a positive person, that adapts very easily to new situations and enjoys changes. I’m a hardworking person and basically a problem solver. Presently I’m not happy with my current professional situation and being so I’m looking for a change.

    Professional English/Chinese Translator

    Canada - Last active: 08/02/2014 - Tests: 3

    Over the last seven years, I have been involved with a range of companies and websites performing various types of translations. My core competency lies in both written and verbal Chinese to English, and English to Chinese translation. I attended Brock University to attain my Masters in Education, which has greatly helped acquire numerous unique writing and verbal translation opportunities. My experience has also brought me into contact with natively fluent Russian, Japanese, and French translators. I am open to discussing reasonable time arrangements involving those peers to complete assignments. This means that it is possible to take verbal or written Russian, Japanese, and French, and have it accurately translated into native Chinese.
