I am a Brazilian-Portuguese native and have invaluable knowledge about Brazilian culture and its' language. I have studied the language formally in elementary school as well as during my undergraduate years at the University of Minnesota. I have studied Spanish language, culture and literature formally in school, for over 8 years, including the opportunity to experience the Argentine culture first hand during a semester abroad in 2013.
Currently I have two full semesters worth of working with translation, having started in a more general translation course focused on getting experience with translating various topics of various specializations and starting to look into theory, and the second one focusing more on learning and applying theory to translation. I have translated mainly news articles, medical articles and one full literary short story, which I had the most fun with. I have only worked in translating documents between Portuguese and English so far, but am able to translate just as well between Spanish and English or even between Spanish and Portuguese.
