Source text - English I’ll tell you a story about freaks that you’ll surely relate to! Perhaps you’ll even find that we aren’t very different.
Before the Ash Curse came, the Outcasts were the most feared gang of brigands. The world despised them, and they repaid it with twice the hatred. They robbed and killed the rich and the poor alike. The gang was unstoppable.
Corrupted by wealth, fortune, and impunity, the Outcasts descended into madness. They now wished for an artifact granting unmatched power—the Ash Box. They embarked into the Valley of Death to recover the Box. And atop the Valley’s peak, they’ve found its owner.
Lady Death: “Leave me be and you may have the Box,” she said.
A reward without a fight; surely the fools agreed. However, none of them wanted to share the prize. Their strength and madness matched exactly, and they were sure to kill each other. But one tiny thing broke the balance. The most pathetic of the Outcasts, the weakling, grabbed the Ash Box: “I shall have the power!”
But he couldn’t handle it. The Box slipped out of his hands and broke into pieces. The cloud of ashes arose corrupting every being, defiling air and soil. But most of all, corrupting the Outcasts. Each in their own way, they paid the price for their hubris. That is the world we live in. And until the Curse is lifted, we are all freaks, sir.
Well, well, so you call us freaks, bard?! You are yet to see the worst of us. Let’s show him, fellas!
Translation - Portuguese Vou contar uma história sobre aberrações que você certamente se identificará! Talvez você até perceba que não somos assim tão diferentes.
Antes da Maldição das Cinzas, os Exilados eram a gangue mais temida de salteadores. O mundo os detestava, e eles detestavam o mundo mais ainda. Eles roubavam e matavam ambos os ricos e pobres. Essa gangue era incontrolável.
Corrompidos pela riqueza, fortuna e impunidade, os Exilados perderam a cabeça. Eles desejavam um artefato que iria garantir inigualável poder - a Caixa das Cinzas. Eles foram até o Vale da Morte para recuperar a Caixa. E no pico mais alto do Vale, eles acharam o dono dela.
A Dama da Morte: "Deixe-me em paz e então poderás ter a Arca," ela disse.
Um triunfo sem uma luta; é claro que os tolos aceitaram. Porém, nenhum deles queria dividir a recompensa. O que eles tinham de loucos, tinham também de fortes, então era previsível que iriam matar uns aos outros. Mas um pequeno detalhe desequilibrou tudo. O Exilado mais estúpido de todos - um fracote - pôs as mãos na Arca de Cinzas: "O poder será meu!"
Mas ele não aguentou. A Arca escorregou das mãos dele e se quebrou em pedaços. Uma nuvem de cinzas se alastrou, corrompendo o ar, a terra e todas as coisas. E, principalmente, corrompendo também os Exilados. Cada um deles pagou o preço da arrogância que tiveram. E é assim que chegamos no mundo em que estamos agora. Até a Maldição ser desfeita, continuaremos todos sendo um bando de aberrações por aqui, meu caro.
Ora, ora, então é de "aberrações" que você chama a gente, bardo?! Você ainda não viu nada. Vamos mostrar pra ele, pessoal!

Source text - English A soldier came marching along the highway: left, right! left, right! He had his knapsack on his back and a sword at his side, for he had been out fighting a war, and now he was on his way home.
Out on the highway he came across an old witch – she was horribly ugly, her lower lip hung right down on her chest. She said: ‘Good evening, soldier! What a fine sword and a large knapsack you have, you’re a real soldier! And now you’re going to have as much money as you want to own!’
‘Thank you, you old witch!’ the soldier said.
‘Can you see that big tree?’ the witch said, pointing at a tree that stood next to them. ‘It’s completely hollow inside!
You’re to clamber up to the top of it and there you’ll see a hole you can let yourself slide down through and get deep inside the tree! I’ll bind a rope round your waist, for then I can haul you up when you give me a shout!’
‘What am I supposed to do down in the tree?’ the soldier asked.
‘Fetch money!’ the witch said, ‘now when you get down to the bottom of the tree, you’ll find yourself in a large hallway that is quite bright, for more than a hundred lamps burn there. Then you will see three doors, you can open them, the keys are in the locks.
When you enter the first room, you’ll see a large chest in the middle of the floor with a dog sitting on top; it’s got eyes the size of saucers, but don’t you worry about that!
I’ll give you my blue-checked apron, you can spread it out on the floor – then go over quickly and pick up the dog, place him on the apron, open the chest and take as many coins as you like.
They are all made of copper, but if you would rather have silver coins, you must go into the next room, but the dog sitting there has a pair of eyes that are as big as mill-wheels, but don’t you worry about that, place him on my apron and help yourself to the money!
Translation - Portuguese Estrada afora, veio um soldado marchando: esquerda, direita, esquerda, direita! Ele carregava uma mochila nas costas e uma espada em sua cintura, pois esteve em guerra, e agora estava no caminho para casa.
Mas então ele encontrou uma velha bruxa na estrada. Oh, como ela era feia! Tão feia que seu lábio inferior batia no peito. – Boa noite, soldado – disse ela. – Que bela espada você tem! E que mochila! Você é mesmo um soldado de respeito! Agora, vou te mostrar como conseguir o dinheiro que quiser!
– Muito obrigado, velha senhora! – disse o soldado.
– Está vendo aquela árvore grande bem ali? – perguntou a bruxa, apontando para uma árvore próxima. – É bem oca por dentro.
Você deve escalá-la e então verá um buraco. Escorregue por ele e desça para o fundo da árvore. Vou amarrar uma corda na sua cintura, assim posso te puxar pra cima novamente quando gritar meu nome.
– Mas o que vou fazer lá embaixo da árvore? – perguntou o soldado.
– Ora, buscar dinheiro! – respondeu a bruxa. – Pois preste atenção: quando você chegar ao fundo, estará diante de uma grande passagem. É bastante iluminado lá, com centenas de lâmpadas acesas. Depois, verá três portas que você mesmo pode abrir, já que as chaves estão lá te esperando na fechadura.
Entrando na primeira sala, verá um grande baú, mas tem um cachorro deitado nele. Olhe, esse cachorro tem olhos tão grandes como xícaras. Mas não se preocupe com isso!
É pra isso que estou te dando meu avental azul xadrez, para abri-lo no chão. Feito isso, erga o cachorro e coloque-o em meu avental, pronto. Em seguida, abra a tampa do baú e pegue o tanto de moeda que quiser.
Elas são todas de cobre, mas, caso prefira moedas de prata, então deve ir para a próxima sala. Lá, tem um cachorro sentado com um par de olhões que parecem rodas de moinho. Mas não se preocupe com isso! Coloque no cachorro no avental e aproveite o dinheiro!

Do you need to reach out to a wider audience that includes Portuguese speaking gamers?
I am a Brazilian translator and video game localizer with 9 years of experience performing translations from English to Brazilian Portuguese. I am specialized in software, website, app and game localization, notably in projects that demand creative translation solutions. My services include translation, game localization, LQA (linguistic quality assurance), game testing and proofreading.
I help global companies and developers with the localization into Portuguese of games and apps. I can translate your game in a natural fashion, having in mind your game’s soul, so Portuguese speaking gamers can enjoy the original experience while feeling at home with the language.
Your game surely aims at being remarkable – and it can benefit from its future growing communities. For that, it is essential to count with an attractive, highly contextual and fluid language: the keywords for my translation skills.
25 years as a passionate player, formal training and professional experience brought me solid awareness when it comes to rendering translations that areculturally accurate. Directly and indirectly, I have worked for indie developers and a major Japanese company in the video game industry, having delivered several titles on PC (Steam) and mobile (Android and iPhone).
Is your game about to be released? Here’s what I can do for you:
Besides localization, I also offer services suitable to the last stages of game production: LQA, testing and copywriting.
LQA & game testing:as a seasoned LQA tester responsible for translation projects’ final touches, I have over 400 hours testing language (Portuguese) and features in games and mobile applications on various platforms. This means that I am geared with detail-oriented attitudes to spot structural and contextual inadequacies, so as to offer the best possible final quality. Besides that, I can write concise bug reports (linguistic and technical) detailing causes, steps and suggested solutions, supported by screenshots and videos.
Copywriting: I can improve your game’s visibility online with an effective description to make it stand out in the Brazilian market. I have worked with the following game genres: action, adventure, shmups, survival, RPG, sports, shooters and fighting. Such experience helps me devise texts supported by keywords associated to your game’s genre and purpose.
