About me

Paula Góes

Journalist, editor and translator

I am a Brazilian journalist, editor and translator based in the UK since 2002.

I work as Project Manager for Global Voices Online, a non-profit global citizens’ media project founded at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Previously, I was Global Voices Online Multilingual Editor, and before the Portuguese Language Editor.

Before Global Voices, I was employed as an in-house translator, software localisation specialist, proof-reader and linguistic consultant, under the job title of Brazilian Portuguese Localization Specialist, acting also as the localization coordinator for one of the house projects, for which I managed translations into 12 languages.

During the past few years, I have done a wide range of freelance translation work for a number of translation and transcreation agencies. I have also worked as a reporter and producer for several publications and websites, both in Brazil and in the UK, including JungleDrums Magazine. I am also a volunteer translator for Amnesty International, and often donate my time to projects and causes I believe in.

Other translation fields of interest to me are literature, poetry, freedom of expression, environment, human and animal rights, alternative healing and spirituality related topics. I am interested in journalism, media, news and citizen media, blogging and podcasting, new technologies, social media and how they all fit together to promote changes in the way we think about reporting news and expressing ourselves. I love texts that engage my creativity, so if you need more than just a translator, you need look no further.
