  8. Alcino J.

    Alcino J. Agency Contractor

    TOP ODESK LANGUAGE CONSULTANT

    Portugal - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    Eleven years ago I moved from English-speaking South Africa to Portugal to complete a university degree in Business Management (and later a Master's degree in Corporate Finance). Throughout my university career I helped numerous amounts of colleagues in translating assignments and went on to gain professional experience in translations after finishing my studies - including constant legal and fiscal legislation translation in a job that eventually led me to where I am today. My language skills in related technical areas (and in general) are therefore considerably solid. After finishing university, I worked at a fiscal and financial consultancy company that provided services to foreigners looking to invest in property in Portugal, where I was intensely involved in almost every aspect of setting up and running the company (all the way from developing business and marketing strategies, assistance in website design and creation, through to meeting with partners and clients). Every aspect of my job forced me to be bilingual on a daily and even hourly basis. I seek opportunities to translate websites from English to Portuguese or vice-versa (create other-language versions), translate specific content and articles between these two languages, and assist in any necessary branding for new-language markets. Proofreading and copy-editing in any of the two aforementioned languages are obviously also within my domain. Note: Stealing (or directly copying) other contractors' sales-pitch text is dishonest and is not it polite. Please don't do it.
