I am a Brazilian linguist and translator, specialist in the English - Portuguese language pair. I have been working as a freelance translator since mid 2017 providing top-quality content for a great variety of customers.

I was born in the south of Brazil and I currently live in Minas Gerais as I finish my degree in Literature and Translation at the Federal University of Ouro Preto. My current goal is to finish it this year and start my master's degree by the beginning of 2020. Most of my income have been coming from translation since I have joined university. 

As a scholar, my background includes Linguistics (specially in Systemic Functional Linguistics), Translation Studies, Corpus Analysis and Literature. I also have experience in System Analysis and Coding because I have a minor degree as a technologist in Internet Systems and Application Development.

During this period, I have been able to translate different kinds of texts and genres. My main language pair is English/Portuguese. My recent jobs included Business and General texts, Information Technology articles and YouTube videos. I have translated scientific papers, abstracts and Literature and Linguistics texts as well. I can provide editing and proofreading services whenever that is necessary as well as I can work in projects that require original research and creative writing in Portuguese and in English. I am also open to translate texts outside my areas of expertise, working with glossaries and technical terms when necessary.
