Bio

I hold a Master's Degree in Language Studies from a public university in Natal, Brazil (2013) and a BA in English Language from the same university (2011). I was a professor of the Portuguese and English Language course at Potiguar University and proofreader of English Language at Potiguar University Publishing House (2014-2017). I am a researcher and writer. My most important work is my thesis about the learning of English mediated by electronic games, also published in English: "Online Role Play Games and Second Language Learning" (2016). Now I work as a full time freelance translator and proofreader, always with dedication and high quality.

Since I was a child, I used to play a lot of video games. It was one of my first hobbies. That was how I had my first contact with the English language and, yes, started learning English. At school, English and Portuguese were always my favorite subjects, because I thought they were very familiar to me.

Not surprisingly, I chose to continue learning English when I enrolled at the University. I've finished the English language and literature undergraduation with very good grades, engaging in two research projects with one of the best Professors there.

Right after graduating, I started to pursue a masters degree, conducting an experimental research about Online Role Play Games and Second Language Learning. Again, I've finished it with outstanding records. All of my grades were A+ as you can see in my academic transcript.

As a result, I wrote a thesis and a book in Portuguese and English and it was my first relevant job as a translator.

My book in English: https://www.lap-publishing.com/catalog/details//store/gb/book/978-3-659-93165-9/online-role-play-games-and-second-language-learning

And in Portuguese: https://repositório/jspui/handle/123456789/16264

Besides working as an EFL teacher, I started working as a Professor at a private University, training students to be teachers, translating and proofreading academic documents.

Now I am interested in working with translation, localization, proofreading, subtitling and transcription.

I look forward to working with you and show my high quality linguistic skills.
