Brazilian translator eager to work. I'm self-taught in English, yes! And since I learned it myself, I'm passionate about languages in general and the way they work in our society.

My passion for words comes from my childhood and the songs I listened to. Every word has a power within and I intend to concentrate this power as much as I can when I translate.

Subtitling TV shows and localizing games and apps are my expertise now. But I'm open to any areas I might learn from and work with.
