Born and raised in Brazil, surrounded by games of all sorts, I know what a gamer expects to experience when he picks up a game for the first time.

I worked in Video Game Quality Assurance in a variety of titles and genres. This allows me to, beyond making sure your game feels natural and relatable to the Portuguese audience, improve your gameplay and squish bugs, as well as assessing the current state of your game's readiness for the Brazilian marketplace.

Quality: I was approved by Netflix in a rigorous test for subtitling. I am a Lead Translator for Coursera, having translated courses carrying the name of major universities, for the entire world to study. I became a Senior Translator and Pro at smartCAT, a translation ecosystem, through a complex assessment of multiple recognized translators. The quality of my translations is assured. I treat every project with the same faithfulness.

Communication: Have you ever been frustrated with a translator or agency who would ignore your questions and queries when they were at their most critical moment? Not with me. You can expect full and prompt communication on my part, as well as honesty and clarity.

Scope: Are you worried your project may be unfit for the scope of my localization? Be at ease. I have worked on projects as small as 10 words, and as long as 800,000 words. Indie games, browser games, board games, AAA games, websites, marketing, support, songs, poems, manuals, scientific articles related to the game's background story. I have covered it all.

Languages: My working pair is English to Brazilian Portuguese. If you want to translate your game into other language pairs, I can assemble a team with renowned game localization expertise for the safe translation and publishing of your game in new marketplaces.
