Native Portuguese (BR) speaker in Athlone, Ireland
"If you want to reach a Brazilian audience, I can help!"
Everyone needs instructions to know how to install things, or how to use devices, or to troubleshoot a network. User manuals need to communicate important information in a clear manner, to avoid misunderstandings and even possible accidents! I have experience with a variety of them:
mobile handheld devices
network systems for subway trains
industrial equipment (conveyor belts and the likes!)
This is how I solved a recent terminology, style, or linguistic challenge
One of my localization clients sent me a small task with just a headline. No visual context and no more textual context. The English wording didn’t work well in Portuguese but I needed at least some more information about the rest of the text to choose how to reword that. So I used the client-given communication channel (gotta love Slack!) and we solved the problem in a few minutes!
Seeing my client’s product make an impact in my home country is what keeps me going.
Sometimes we translators don’t see the finished product of our work. That is how I used to feel with my technical translations. Now with app localization and subtitles, the impact of my work is more tangible and encourages me to keep improving my skills and to give my best!
I had the pleasure to work with her since 2013 and could see she is a great translator and a very careful proofreader. She is consistently efficient and responsible, tackling all assignments with dedication. She is a very talented and competent translator, plus she is a team player and is always willing to cooperate with the group with ideas and solutions to problems or challenges regarding translation.
