About me
A 15-year experience translator both for translation agencies, radios and publishing houses.

Having learned English all by myself when I was a teenager, I have both the Michigan Proficiency Certificate and the Certificate in Advanced English of Cambridge. Later, I took advanced English courses, specializing in some areas, such as English for Law, Contracts and others.

Interested in Spanish culture, literature and cinema, I took courses on Spanish with emphasis on translation - also, I was awarded prizes in contests for poetry I wrote in Spanish. I have even translated a book into Spanish (for kids), as well as many documents.

I have translated texts from French into English and from French into Portuguese for some companies, including Renault.

I have recently started translating from Italian into Portuguese and Italian into English - for my love for the languages, I think that the more we learn the more we CAN learn.

I also work with subtitling - I have took a course on the History of Cinema and other workshops related to the theme, and I love movies, so, this was a huge motivation for my studies in this area of work. Always paying attention to what I used to see in subtitles of the movies I watched, and my technical and specialized studies in this area have made me capable of translating/subtitling precisely.

I have translated about 10 books into Portuguese, which include the following:
High Magic's Aid - Gerald Gardner
La Historia Oculta del Satanismo - Santiago Camacho Hidalgo
- Nicole Bailey
