Bio

I am a Spanish/Portuguese (Brazilian) into English freelance translator with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. As part of my Science course, I also studied other fields of Science, including Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Genetics... and Calculus (yikes!). I have always been surrounded by English and Spanish due to my bilingual upbringing. My passion for languages evolved from that and motivated me to learn Portuguese (Brazilian).

I decided that I wanted a career where I could utilise my languages. This led me to the M.A. in Translations Studies programme offered by DCU. It was my high grades in the scientific and technical translation modules of the course that convinced me to specialise as a scientific translator.

I also specialise in sports translations. Soccer, tennis, rugby, motorsport, swimming and athletics capture my attention. Translating any text regarding these sports is not really work for me as I regularly do so in my free time for fun!

While I specialise in scientific and sports translations, I also have professional translation experience in the video games and tourism fields.
