Expert Translator / Communication Designer
Last active: 1 day ago
Hello! My name is João Paulo.
If you are looking for an experienced professional translator in English, Portuguese (Brazilian and European Portuguese) and Spanish, as well as reliable, responsible and devoted, know that I will gladly work for you.
I have experience with website translation and localization, proofreading, as well as general translation of documents, news articles, manuals and transcriptions.
I'm also a Communication designer graduate with knowledge in branding, illustration (Adobe Illustrator and Adobe PhotoShop), CG graphics in SolidWorks and Cinema 4D, editorial design (Adobe inDesign), photography and some knowledge in web design (html5 and CSS3).
My translation methods include a research about the project's theme and then gathering the necessary terminology and jargon to deliver a translation that respects both the original text as well the target language integrity.
As a translator I work on the following types of documents:
- I read through the original material and rewriting it in the target language, ensuring that the meaning of the source text is retained.
- liaising with clients to discuss any unclear points
- proofreading and editing final translated versions
- providing clients with a grammatically correct, well-expressed final version of the translated text, usually as a word-processed document
- using the internet and email as research tools throughout the translation
- prioritizing work to meet deadlines
- English to Portuguese (Brazilian and/or European Portuguese) and vice versa;
- Spanish to Portuguese (Brazilian and/or European Portuguese);
- Spanish to English.
Experience in CAT tools:
