Eliana N S Dunker

Translator Omaha, NE

English & Brazilian Portuguese

Freelance translator with extensive experience and a solid education background, she started her freelance career in 2014 just before leaving Brazil and moving to Omaha, NE, USA. She worked for over 20 years as a bilingual executive assistant in São Paulo, where she had responsibilities which required excellent skills in writing, translating, revising and editing documents of different areas, as well as interpreting business meetings. With a B.A. in languages, she taught English to Brazilian executives and Brazilian Portuguese to foreigners, activities that she considers important for the development and consolidation of knowledge and skills. Having a strong command of grammar and style in both languages, she is an accomplished linguist always interested in and attentive to implicit cultural differences. She is, therefore, a qualified translator and language teacher with years of combined experience in both fields.

Translation Speed

Depending on the kind and complexity of the text, she can translate around 2000 words per day, this average, though, does not include revising and editing.
