I am native Portuguese with excellent grammar, punctuation and spelling skills and I have almost as great skills in English. My brain is definitely bilingual.
I have been a freelance Professional Translator since 2013, specializing in Business, Marketing and Social Sciences. However, I have also performed successful translations in many other different fields, such as website and app contents, legal contracts, technical manuals, automotive systems, coaching materials, among others. I am very detail and quality oriented.
Before that, I was an Administrative Assistant for over 5 years. I translated some website articles as a volunteer (since 2010) and I worked for an import/export company where I was responsible for all external communications (English/Spanish). I also performed some translation work in one of the companies I worked in.
I use SDL Trados 2011, but I always check my translations, sentence by sentence, for grammar, meaning and vocabulary use - no automatic translations! I am also very proficient in manual translations, which many clients demand in order to attain better quality.
Get a Portuguese passport for your games! - I have worked in numerous small projects, a board game, an online flash game, a prestigious website, and a AAA Video Game. Codex entries, character descriptions, songs, dialogue, poems, manuals, menus, marketing material, background stories, all of it have been a part of my localizations.
Having worked as a Quality Assurance Tester in video games before, I also bring a proficiency in bug squishing and overall quality of life improvement to my work.
Though my specialty is in gaming, I also work with the translation of automation, robots, and science related materials, as well as any generic project you may wish translated.

Более 10 лет проживала в Португалии, где в 2015 году в связи с получением гражданства сдавала экзамен – португальский язык как иностранный. Мой результат 86 баллов из 100. Есть подтверждающий документ. Работала официантом в ресторане при отеле, где ежедневно общалась с коллегами на португальском языке, а с гостями и туристами на английском. Временами помогала им общаться друг с другом – вот мой своеобразный опыт устного переводчика. Некоторое время назад вернулась в Россию, здесь хочу применять знание языка на практике. К выполнению задания подхожу ответственно. В процессе работы обращаюсь к словарям и справочникам для поддержания высокого качества перевода. Отличаюсь организованностью и пунктуальностью, готовую работу сдаю в установленные сроки. В общении вежлива и доброжелательна.

Hello! My name is Júlia and I'm an ENG-PTBR translator.
My translations are manually done by me, never through any sort of machine translations and they are also proofread and revised before turned in. I have worked with an assorted number of online and software CAT tools and have basic knowledge of coding and I'm a fast learner with new technologies and software.
My goal while translating and revising is for the text to seem localized, I always try to make the end result flow easily on the reader's eyes. I adapt the text (when needed) so it doesn't look "chunky" or "automated", it should always look like someone wrote it and not a translation bot.
I am very motivated and passionate about translating. I believe localizing and making sure the right message is delivered is always very fun and important. I value my clients and always aim for their satisfaction. My schedule is very flexible and I'm very committed to my deadlines.
Thank you in advance!
