I am an experienced language professional who wears multiple hats — freelance translator, editor, copywriter, subtitler, desktop publisher, and interpreter.

With my work experience in several fields, along with my academic background in linguistics, translation theory and practice, I feel 100% prepared for the jobs I undertake. I have an ear for the semantic, grammatical, and cultural nuances that are normally required for a good translation! I localize content for the Brazilian and US markets.
