Native Portuguese (PT) speaker in Aveiro, Portugal
"Game Localization Specialist"
I am an avid gamer and my favorite genres are RPGs and MMOs. My favorite games/franchises include Final Fantasy, The Witcher, Dragon Age, Pokemon, The Legend of Heroes, Legends of Runeterra, Black Desert, and many others.
I specialize in Gaming localization, having worked on several indie, mid-tier and AAA titles for console, PC and mobile. The content translated includes:
• Marketing materials • Store descriptions • User interface strings • Dialogues • Scripts
I am a professional translator, editor, proofreader and game localization specialist (from English/Spanish to European Portuguese) with 7 years of experience (6 of them in-house). I only translate into European Portuguese, as I believe translators should only translate into their native language.
My experience as an in-house translator has provided me with an extensive knowledge on several CAT and QA tools, such as Trados Studio, MemoQ, Memsource and xBench. I am also very familiar with the QA/QC procedures carried out by most agencies, which allows me to provide high-quality translations, while reducing the amount of follow-up steps necessary before the final delivery.
• I never subcontract work; • I never miss a deadline; • I only translate into my native language; • I always proofread, spellcheck and QA my work; • I try not to guess.

Mariana is one of our most trusted vendors. She is always willing to help when she has time, no matter how big or small the project. Her projects are always delivered on time and the quality is excellent. She is also very honest when it comes to her own specialisations, and will not accept projects if she cannot ensure high-quality translations in a certain field.
