Since 2011, I have dedicated myself to translating and editing medical articles in the fields of orthopedics, cardiology, pediatrics, and ophthalmology, among others. However, life sciences is not my only focus: I started transcreating in 2012, working for advertisement agencies in Brazil. Later, I was recruited by European agencies, and have been transcreating marketing copy for Fortune 500 companies, including website localizations. 

I currently provide translation, proofreading, copyediting, localization, and subtitling services. I decided to pursue specialized training in the latter; I'm finishing a year-long course in subtitling focused on corporate audiovisual content, a growing niche in our industry.
