Events and training

Language is not a barrier, it’s a bridge that connects us with the most wonderful minds in the world.

I’m a detail-oriented, creative, and high-skilled English to Brazilian Portuguese Translator and Subtitler. I solve people's linguistic problems and help them achieve their goals by walking them over the language bridge.

I dedicate my academic life to studying Linguistics and Literature. During my undergraduate, I was a member of a Federal University's translation research group, which had the goal to study, analyze and discuss works of African American writers, such as Toni Morrison, Audre Lorde, Langston Hughes, and more. I also taught from basic to advanced general and academic English at several extension programs promoted by the university, such as “Idiomas sem Fronteiras” (Languages Without Borders - a branch from Science Without Borders). Those programs made language learning accessible to the students and the community. 

I’m currently finishing my Graduate Degree in Audiovisual Translation and preparing myself to take a Master’s Degree in Translation as well. 

My areas of interest are Audiovisual, Subtitling for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (SDH), Video Games, UI / UX Design, Literature, Languages, Linguistics, Music, Traveling, Education, and Art in general.

I have experience in Subtitling, Captioning, and Transcription in several different areas, the main ones being entertainment (movies and series), training for companies, medicine, oil&gas, music, technology, and religion.

I also have experience in text translation in some different areas, the main ones being literature, mechanics, academics, and technology.

As I volunteer, I’m very proud of being part of the TED Translators, Translators Without Borders, and Coursera GTC Teams.

As a personal interest, I’m really passionate about music. I have deeply studied classical and electric guitar, and I’m now venturing myself with the ukulele. After all, music is also a very beautiful language.
