About me
I am a qualified translator with a bachelor's and licentiate degrees in English language, Literature and Linguistics and a graduate diploma in language teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a graduate diploma in English translation. As a recent graduate, I am now seeking an opportunity to use my English language skills within a professional business context, in a role that utilizes my excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

For the past two years and during my university studies I have worked for a local videogame website and Youtube channel SnesTalgia, providing subtitling and translation services, besides teaching English and translating texts in general as a freelancer. I have also spent a year in college in a research group under the tutelage of a professor. In this period, I translated short stories from English to Portuguese with a group of students. After that, we made scripts out of the translated stories and recorded them as audio plays. Currently I translate courses about game development as a volunteer on the Global Translators community and I also translate for the UN volunteering website on my free time. My most recent contribution was the translation of the first 50 pages (14.580 words) of a 112-page-long prison management manual.

I am completely fluent in English, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese (Native) and received high distinction in all my language courses. I am also an extremely hard-working, responsible and mature worker, who enjoys working in a team as well as autonomously. I really enjoy communicating with others and playing videogames, which is why I think I would be ideally suited to this role. I have been playing videogames for the past 19 years and during this period I have obtained knowledge about different videogame genres and their characteristics.
