I offer quadri-lingual fixer services to make your project happen in Rio de Janeiro and throughout Brazil.
During the time I lived in London, Switzerland and Rio, I have worked several times as a translator/interpreter, accompanying professionals on specific projects or meetings. My last job as a “fixer” involved helping with all organisational aspects involved around the launch event of the Adidas official FIFA World Cup football in Rio de Janeiro.

I also interviewed the football players Seedorf, Cafu, Hernane and the synchronised swimmers Bia & Branca and translated some of the sound bites back into English and French.
Other translation projects included accompanying the Senegalese delegation during LAAD in Rio (Latin America’s largest defense conference) and accompanying the American Head of HR and Operations of a large aeronautical company during their visit to their Brazilian subsidiary in Rio.
…and here’s a bit more about my background:
I am a French national with a German/Vietnamese background and was mainly educated in France and in the UK, where I graduated in European Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London. I worked in the financial services industry in Europe for several years and was based in London. I speak fluent English, Portuguese, German and French.
Since moving to Brazil approx. 4 years ago, I have been self-employed, free-lancing by offering companies and individuals my services as a linguist/using the languages I speak.
This has meant providing language consultancy services to companies during meetings and conference calls involving participants from different countries, telephone and face-to-face interpreting or using my languages in a sales/marketing context to promote specific services or to produce tailor-made marketing content in French or English.
