Rodrigo Mansueli Nunes


Brazil - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

I am a senior Computer Engineering Student at the Federal Technological University of Paraná with a conjoint degree at University of Alberta (2014/2015). This conjoint degree was scholarship and the Brazilian Federal Government awarded it due to mine academic record. I also lived in Denmark in 2008 as part of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program where I learned Danish well enough to understand even Norwegian. I have used this website during this time as a complimentary mean of supporting myself through these university experiences. Over the past few years, I worked on Upwork (started when it was still oDesk) in many and different positions mostly as a consultant. My primary work types were to translate; to proofread and to research issues related to Brazil or that involved my language somehow i.e proofreading software localization. I did also work as a graphic designer although the designer jobs were a minor part of my experience here. I am able to work within the following language pairs: From/To English/ Portuguese Danish/Portuguese Spanish/Portuguese Portuguese/English I am a tech savvy, as you one would imagine based on my degree. This nature makes me a very flexible freelancer to work with and around technologies and pick up quickly almost anything IT related. Any kind of media or service is fine for me.
