My name is Cátia Cassiano. I live in Sydney, Australia and I am a Certified Translator. I love my job and, in this blog, I will show you my personal views on several subjects related to translation.

I’ve been in this industry for more than 10 years and I am the Founder of Updated Words. A team of independent translators I founded with a colleague and friend, in 2008. Throughout the years we worked together helping people with the best quality translations and other language services.  At the moment, Updated Words is just myself, but it stills keeps these values very strong.

I am a Certified Translator, a member of NAATI, AUSIT and CIOL. I strongly believe the role of associations in keeping great standards in the industry. So is professional development. This is a very competitive industry and we need to reinvent ourselves every day to be able to succeed.
