I am a Brazilian freelance translator, currently living in Portugal (for the last two years). 


- Bachelor's degree in Journalism (Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil)

- Specialization in Editorial Projects (UNA, Brazil)

- Master's degree in Literary and Cultural Studies (University of Porto, Portugal)

I have graduated from one of the top 5 universities in Brazil and finished my Masters in the best university in Portugal (according to the QS World University Rankings 2017).

I have been studying English for 20 years and I hold a Cambridge English Advanced (CAE) certificate. I have also worked as an English tutor for teenagers.

For the last 5 years I have been providing occasional services as an English – Portuguese translator. In 2017, I became a full-time freelance translator.

I have experience mainly with:

-technical & literary e-books
-website & app localization
-product description & e-commerce
-marketing & tourism materials

I believe that being a good translator requires much more than being fluent in two or more different languages. The translator needs to have a profound knowledge of those languages and a good understanding of their cultures. He/she must identify the GOALS, the TARGET AUDIENCE, the TONE and the SUBTLETIES of the original text and translate it appropriately into the target language and culture, also being attentive to perfect grammar. I can certainly offer all that to your project.

I am now a full-time freelance translator and writer, which means I will be completely focused on carrying out your projects the best way possible and I will be available to your questions, suggestions and, if needed, required modifications.

I also work as a proofreader and a copywriter (Portuguese).
