ABOUT US

ABOUT US

TIME IDEAL

The Ideal Team

 

Ideal Translation is a small, two-person team based in São Paulo that provides translation and interpretation services in English to Portuguese and Portuguese to English.

 

Liz is a native English speaker who started studying Portuguese over 10 years ago and has lived in Brazil for over five years. Patricia is a native Portuguese speaker who started studying English almost 20 years ago.

 

We generally split our written translation work evenly, and every translation is reviewed and edited by both of us. We work together and independently as interpreters, in simultaneous, consecutive and liaison interpreting.

 

We started Ideal Translation in 2012 because of our passion for both languages and the common ideal of transporting meanings between these languages. 

 

We are both members of the American Translators Association (ATA) and the Brazilian National Union of Translators (SINTRA) and we frequently attend conferences for translators and interpreters.  In June 2018, we had the opportunity to speak at the Annual Conference of the Brazilian Association of Translators and Interpreters (Associação Brasileira de Tradutores e Intérpretes - ABRATES) held in Rio de Janeiro, where we were able to provide practical advice about building a professional presence in the translation market.
