    Germany - Last active: 1 month ago - Portfolio: 3

    I work with translation from English to Portuguese and the other way around too. I have lived in the USA for a year and I also travel a lot outside Brazil. Now, I am living in Berlin, Germany. For exemple, I am currently working on a translation for this website: from Portuguese to English and I made the interpretation for a group of young artists led by Crossway Foundation, an English Foundation, in Brazil. I also have a Bachelor's degree on Photography at SENC University in São Paulo, and like very much to work with portraits, photoshop, creative projects and basic design. I have worked for some magazines and websites in Brazil, as you can see on my photography portfolio website: I also play the flute for 17 years now, and had two bands: in one of them we played electronic music in which I used to make one of the vocals, lyrics and a few drum tracks, and the other one I used also to make the vocals and played the flute: This is just a basic non-fully-mixed rehearsal recording, but at least you can hear how the band used to sound like. In both of then, I did composition too. In music and composition, I also participate of the creation and execution for this soundtrack: I can be full-time dedicated to oDesk jobs here in Berlin, as I am a freelancer. I am interested in Translations PT-EN/EN-PT, soundtracks composition and recording, photography and executive production. So, if you need anything, just write and I will answer very quickly. Thank you very much for the contact.

    French marketing translator / Copywriter

    United Kingdom - Last active: 29 days ago

    My background: Passionate about languages, I have been very hands on with regards to localisation for the past six years with work including translation and copywriting for some major global brands on many ATL advertising campaigns. My agency background gives me the edge and a clear understanding on clients’ needs in terms of timings, quality and confidentiality. Services I provide: transcreation, copywriting, subtitling, editing and proofreading. Field of expertise: Marketing (press releases, brochures, websites, apps, social network content, apps, interactive media, etc.) List of brands I work for available on demand. What do clients say about my work? "Did an excellent, creative and highly-articulate V1 on a recent transcreation job. Very impressed by the calibre of her work." Jan, 2014 "Camille worked on a couple of leaflets for us recently (btw, with a very short turnaround time) and managed to further improve the quality of copy that was already to a very high standard. She made some minor changes that made the copy sound truly idiomatic. That final touch that makes all the difference and leaves no possibility of it being seen as a translation." Apr, 2014 "Excellent translator. Good communication and a pleasure to work with!" Jun, 2014
