I'm Helder Andrade, a freelance web developer and web designer based in Beira, Mozambique

Having gained a BA Hons degree in English Language Teaching from Universidade Pedagógica in 2006, I went on to teach myself the MS Office Suite of applications, HTML and CSS, CS, Computer Repair and Maintenance and take part in a number of MOOCs. I've taught myself to play the drums, the bass guitar, the guitar and some piano. I've been translating since 2001 and have been a sworn translator since November 2011. I've been teaching ICT and CS since January 2011 and have been a member of the Computer Science Teachers Association since September 2012.

I’m primarily a front-end developer, with solid understanding and knowledge in Responsive Design, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, SEO and Django development. But I also have good experience in back-end development (Python, MongoDB) and Flask too. Reach out to me for a new website or to revamp you current one.

If you’re in need of translation, interpretation or localization in the English-Portuguese-English language pair, I can help with that. I have nearly 15 years experience with that too. I can also help if your PC is giving you a hard time. For information about my expertise, rates and more, please check my Proz.com profile.

You can reach out to me if your church's worship group needs some help. It will be my pleasure to assist with that too. I’ve been working with music, praise and worship since 1999 and a wide range of capacities and I'm currently the General Overseer for Worship at Victory Family Centre, Mozambique (Igreja da Família Vitoriosa).

Maybe you’re an agency or someone in need of an extra pair of hands or some digital expertise - get in touch and we’ll have a chat.

SERVICES

TRANSLATION, INTERPRETATION AND LOCALIZATION

Quality translation of manuals, user guides, websites, business and other official documents will to a great extent determine the success of a business. I can provide sworn translation of personal and business documents, diplomas, certificates, research papers, travel and marriage documents, bids, contracts and more. I also provide translation of abstracts in university dissertations and monographs in several areas of interest.

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Using the latest and most suitable web technologies all websites are custom built & hand-coded ensuring that they are responsive across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. Your website will not only be scalable but will perform better, be more efficient, and overall it will provide a better experience for you and your users.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

With half of all internet traffic now coming from mobile devices, it is more important than ever that your website is compatible with all screen sizes. Having a properly optimised website will allow your business to grow no matter what the screen size or device of your users / customers. Every website that I build is always completely responsive and scalable.

SEO

Search Egine Optimisation (SEO) is an important procedure as it helps to increase the number of visitors to your website. That is why when creating any website I always carry out standard on page SEO practices. This will allow your site to rank higher in search engines results - which will potentially drive more traffic to your site allowing it to grow.

IT SUPPORT

I can help you with general computer maintenance, fixing and troubleshooting and expert support whenever necessary to ensure your computer assets are maintained responsibly.

TESOL & PORTUGUESE FOR SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH

I can plan, design and implement ESOL programmes and Portuguese programmes for speakers of English. I can also assist and prepare IELTS candidates.

I also provide many other services such as long-term support, legal advice, IT-related advice and much more.

If I'm not able to help you, I'll find who will.
