Self-introduction:

I am a translator and proof-reader with a flair for creative writing and the experience of more than a decade in the business.

Growing up, I was quite the imaginative child and the frustration of being unable to understand foreign TV shows often exasperated me. That was the beginning of my inclination towards languages.

Experience:

After a brief stint translating and subtitling TV shows and movies, I have found my true passion: translating video games and apps.

Because this occupation also involved translating marketing materials for the App Store, in 2011, I began working in the domain of advertising. I was introduced to transcreation at that time, being involved in the Portuguese campaigns for a variety of advertisements.

Past projects:

Video games and apps:

Translating and proofreading video games for computer, consoles, mobile phone, and tablet, as well as App Store and Google Play materials. Video game QA, “bug tests” and reports.

I am proud to have been part of the localization team for the App Store’s best-selling hidden-object game, among many others.

Marketing:

Adaptation of slogans, jingles and song lyrics for toy brands. Adaptation of leaflets and websites for household appliances. Adaptation of marketing campaigns for an international Dutch chain of fashion retail clothing stores, which included TV ads, store materials, brochures, and storefronts.

Business Terms: Simply e-mail me with the material you need me to translate. The price will vary according to the type of text and field, language pair and, of course, the amount of time I am given, in order to do my task.


My working hours are usually from 10 AM to 6.30 PM (GMT) Monday to Friday, but I am flexible and I do meet deadlines, even if that means working my fingers to the bone.

I never work on many projects at the same time, because I believe a translator should be focused, in order to be successful.

Absolute secrecy is assured, when dealing with the customers' documents.

Payment:
Bank transfer / Paypal. EURO would be highly preferable but, depending on the customer's wishes, an agreement can be reached.
