Professional practices Caroline Silva endorses's Professional Guidelines.
For as long as I can remember, I have always been interested in languages. I remember translating songs from Portuguese to English looking up word by word in a dictionary. Therefore in college I was already doing translations for friends and colleges for their abstracts or small texts. My main activity at the time was teaching, but I really loved translating.After I graduated, I got a job as a freelancer to translate news for a Brazilian fashion magazine. That was when I saw that I wanted to pursue this career. I got a Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics in 2010, but I did not want to work in that area either because I was profoundly interested in translation. So, I consider that 2011 is my first year as a professional because that was when I got my license to work as a Sworn Translator in Brazil. This has provided me with the opportunity to improve my skills in translating. I work mainly for individuals who want to live or study abroad and need to have their documents translated. I also have translated several legal documents, such as court decisions and agreements for companies.In 2017 I took a Specialization Course in Translation, which helped me organize better my work. It showed me easiest ways of doing research for terminology, organize glossaries and calculate estimates, among other things.Lately I have been attending Creative Writing courses, so I have developed skills that meet the requirement to work in transcreation, which is a field I am deeply interested in. I have had short stories selected to be part of two books and later this year my first book, with twenty short stories, will be published.
