◉I have been working as a legal translator since 2015, therefore I have vast experience in this industry. Prior to that date, my first professional experience was as a trainee at the Law Library of the Lisbon School of Law, where I created a number of digital projects, considered at the time pioneer in Portugal, such as the Library's Digital Magazine and dozens of websites dedicated to Law books that were meant to enhance the Library's digital presence and promote online interaction with the relevant public in a more dinamic way (see example1 and example2). The project featured a total of 42 websites and 45 Portuguese and foreign novelties authored by various personalities whose contribution has shaped the teaching and practice of Law. As a final project, I designed and organized, at the end of my traineeship, the 1914-2014 Exhibition to mark the Library's 100 years in existence

◉I was recently invited to teach classes in "Introduction to Law" at the Autónoma Academy, UAL

◉On a even more recent note, earlier this year (2024), I hosted a webinar on Translating for the European Union Institutions, pursuant to an event consisting of training sessions organized by APTRAD for Portuguese translators
