I have always loved languages and learning about new cultures, and I always knew I wanted to work with something creative and related to communication. That's what made me choose a Marketing & Advertising major in University. However, before I even finished my major, I ended up having a chance to work as a freelance translator for a content company - and I fell completely in love with it. I knew right then that was what I wanted to do for a living. Since that first project in 2012, I have completed a Post-graduation course in English Translation and a Game Localization course and have been working with several clients to tear down the language barrier and help them reach new markets and new worlds.

  • English to Brazilian Portuguese software localization specialist since 2012.

  • English to Brazilian Portuguese subtitler since 2016, with over 100 titles already translated available on streaming platforms.

  • Brazilian Portuguese Language Lead at ClickUp since 2023.

  • Experience with several CAT Tools (SDL Trados, Phrase, Smartling, XTM, MemoQ) and subtitling software (Ooona Tools, Subtitle Edit).

  • Post-graduated in English Translation at Estácio de Sá University in 2017.

  • Bachelor of Marketing & Advertising at Estácio de Sá in 2014.
