Overview

As a passionate writer, I find translations to be more than a mere job - it is a leisurely exercise that I feel totally comfortable with and enthusiastic about. Languages have always been something I feel quite close to, and writing being what I'm good at, the combination of the two seems almost inevitable.

Having grown up in Brazil to a Chilean mother, I have a deep cultural as well as grammatical understanding of both Portuguese and Spanish. Currently living in the UK, where I have resided for the past seven years, both aforementioned...

Service Description

I have worked with translations as a freelancer for the past eight years, working for shoes company Grendene (English-Portuguese) as a freelance translator for five years. My experience extends to subtitling feature documentary Only When I Dance (Portuguese - English), for which I had to translate dozens of hours of raw footage before the editing process took place. Further to that, I currently freelance for Spain-based charity Accion Contra el Hambre, translating documents in both Spanish and English.

I am a talented writer, currently working as a freelance for online publication RHUM, where I have a column and write film reviews. I have also written a number of short screenplays, including that of "1 or 2 Things I Don't Know About Him", which featured on the 2008 edition of the Raindance Film Festival. I am currently developing a script for a feature film.

I write assiduously, turning out a number of short stories a year. My writing has been explored professionally through stints on Film Marketing and Film PR, where I had to write proposals and press releases.

My writing is interlinked with translation, for only someone with a true passion for words can truly dedicate themselves to translations.
