CV/Resume If you would like to see my resumé and references and/or need more information, I will be glad to provide them.
Contests won 1st Annual Translation Contest: Spanish to Portuguese (BR)
Professional practices Heloísa Ferdinandt endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
As a freelance translator I work for companies and individuals translating, editing, and proofreading a diverse range of texts, including websites, research projects and academic papers, subtitles, and also publications and press releases.
I have great experience translating and proofreading subtitles from features, episodic series, and documentaries for video, TV and DVD.
I became a translator mainly for the opportunity to know other cultures and to transport them to my language. I often work as a volunteer for instituitions and individuals in need. In 2008 I won the 1st Annual Translation Contest - Spanish to Brazilian Portuguese. The translation is available in my profile and also through the contest page.
My main interests lie in literature, cultural studies, human and social sciences, particularly semiotics, education, sociology, anthropology, religion, and studies on language and history.
More information upon request.
