Rui Sousa

Translator, Trainer, and Speaker in Porto, Portugal

Hello! My name is Rui Sousa and I live in Porto (Portugal), the city in which I was born in 1983. I consider myself a quiet and friendly person who loves books, cinema, languages, cultures, good wines and travelling. Speaking of travelling, one of my recent trips was to Paris, which became my favourite city (after Porto of course!). In 2015, I also visited Warsaw and Amsterdam for different reasons, but loved them both!

My passion for languages led to a Translation Degree in 2006.

I am now a professional translator working from English, French and Spanish into European Portuguese and my specialisations are Informatics/IT, Technology, Business, Marketing, Digital Marketing, Lifestyle and Tourism. I am a founding member and vice-president of the Portuguese Association of Translators and Interpreters (APTRAD).

Since 2013 I have a freelancing business in partnership with a colleague - Mind Words - offering services in translation and proofreading, specialised training and language consultancy. Our main concern is of course helping our clients to reach their markets by improving their communication in different languages. For us, our client's information is paramount - as our motto rightly states: Our minds, your words.

In June 2016 I wrote an ebook in partership with two fellow translators and friends. It was a challenge and an adventure! You can know more about it here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/managingtranslators

And that's all folks! Feel free to reach out!

Adeus, Goodbye, Adieu, Adiós, Arrivederci, Aufwiedersehen!
