Bio

Hello!


I'm an English < > Brazilian Portuguese translator with 12 years of experience, 48 books translated, and over 1,500 hours of on-site interpreting work. 
I also do localization (including for games), and some proofreading and transcription, and write book reviews/reports - which was how I got in the business.


I used to work in the Arts and Fashion industry, but one day a Publishing House I wrote book reports for invited me to take a translation test. I passed, and that opened up this brilliant new world for me and helped me find what I really love to do - helping people get their message across all around the world, no matter the country they're from or the language they speak.


Being a translator is a little bit like being an actor - you get to do research, learn, and "say (or rather, write) your lines" on all of these different worlds - literature, beauty, retail, arts, entertainment, games, history, journalism and news, politics, science, healthcare, travel, hospitality... This constant learning means there is never a dull day.


Being a full-time freelancer and remote worker allows me to do what most makes my heart sing: traveling. I wrote a little bit about my digital nomad experience and love for traveling here.


I am always studying and renewing my knowledge - right now I am studying Travel Writing and English for Journalism. Feel free to check out my website and LinkedIn profile for more information :)


Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!
