Paola Staeblein's profile...

Paola Resume


Paola I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, and grew up speaking both Portuguese and English as my mother, Nancy Staeblein, is an English teacher and Official Translator for the State of Rio de Janeiro. At only 15 years old, I received my first Certificate of Proficiency in English, from the University of Michigan and, five years later, my second Certificate of Proficiency, from Cambridge University, in England.  Languages have always been my forte and a passion for Portuguese led me to a degree in Journalism. 

I have over 25 years of experience as a translator spanned over 6 years as an assistant translator to my mother, in Brazil and, since 1990, as a full-time freelance translator in the US, working with various agencies and directly with clients.  I have translated a vast array of materials, from marketing brochures and business correspondence to official and technical text.  My areas of expertise include: Business, Marketing/Advertising, Computers, Human Resources, Telecommunications, Pharmaceuticals, Medical, Environment, Tourism, Fashion, Media and the Arts.  I work in a timely, professional manner, with particular attention to content, style, grammar and spelling.
