    I had worked as a teacher both in a classroom and on-line settings for more than twelve years. Within the span of certain years in teaching, I was promoted twice. I became also a customer service representative in some call centers, where I took care of the different needs and complaints of the customers/clients. I did also remote trouble shooting for a cable company. At certain seasons. I write and conceptualize events for some companies and sometimes write ads and press releases. I had also my shares of telemarketing. I do not just work because of money but I want to be an asset and to develop more of myself in my chosen field. My passion for writing inspires me to teach. I have been writing for school plays , which are some adaptations and when I am not teaching, I write sequence guides and concepts of an ad or events, such as product launching.

    Hello. I always had a large interest in languages since i was very young. I speak and write fluently Portuguese (my native language), English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. I can maintain either casual or business conversation in those languages, written or spoken. I have been working with translations, proofreading and transcripts for the past years. I have been successful with my work and all my costumers have been satisfied with the results. I can translate almost any subject but, I don't feel comfortable with medical documents. I will gladly accept offers related to my skills. As for budgets, I am sure we can always get to an agreement. I can work either hourly or fixed price. Thank you very much. Patricia Duarte Paços.
