Native Portuguese (PT) speaker in Coimbra, Portugal
"found in translation"
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Archaeology, a Minor in Classical Studies, as well as a Master’s degree in Archaeology and Territory. I have done short courses and workshops on multiple areas, from Anthropology to Tourism. I also have a background in teaching English as a foreign language, as well as extensive experience as a translator.
I am a Translator, an Archaeologist, an English Teacher and a Poet.
What started off as a hobby, translating and captioning Youtube and TED videos, soon became my first translator part-time job for Amara On Demand, where I captioned, translated and reviewed visual content. I translated, on and off, while I was in University of Coimbra taking my Bachelor’s degree in Archaeology with a Minor in Classical Studies and, afterwards, my Master’s degree in Archaeology and Territory - Protohistoric Archaeology.
My translating career kicked off with a more serious tone after my internship at an archaeological enterprise came to an end in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. I decided to invest in translating research articles, projects, websites, etc., related to Archaeology, Anthropology, Museum and Heritage Studies, as well as other Humanities and Social Sciences. Some of the most prestigious “clients” I had so far were the University of Coimbra (Portugal) and the University of Freiburg (Germany).
I am also an English teacher and tutor, and have worked in a small town in China teaching small children and adults for a year, an experience which taught me how important translation really is. Recently, I have been tutoring adults trying to navigate the English language in an academic setting.
In my spare time, I like long walks, watching movies or reading books with cats on my lap and writing poetry.
