About me

Hey, there.

I am a native speaker of Portuguese. I know a little bit of Spanish (I had to study a year of it when I was in school ~10 years ago, but I forgot most of it). I have limited knowledge of German, Italian, Dutch and French due to me listening to songs in these languages when I was a child and then searching for what their lyrics meant. I also took half an year of Latin classes back in college. I grew interested and curious in learning Catalan, Galician, Romanian and Hebrew. As I don't think I know these languages well, I often won't be translating into them, but mainly from them. My translations into said languages will only be of songs the lyrics of which I think are easy enough for me. Note: I speak from Brazil, so expect a Brazilian/Latin American mind translating and talking to you.

As for my academic background: i have a Licentiate degree in Languages (Portuguese/English), a Specialist degree in Portuguese Language (Romance Philology) and am currently taking a Master's in Language Studies (Language Policies and Politics).

A polite warning: I don't usually fulfill requests - I only do so if I have some free time available (or if I really like that specific song you want translated). If you want a song specifically translated by me, then send me a PM - but take in consideration that I'll only do it when I have the time.

I'm interested in studying about language and linguistics (specially Romance Lingustics and about language endangerment) arts in general and acting (I myself was a newbie actor ages ago and have a professional play in my portfolio). That extends to my profile picture, wherein you'll find a portrait of Oswald de Andrade Filho (Nonê), by Brazilian painter Anita Malfatti, one of my favorite painters.

If you like one of my translations, don't hesitate: click the 'Thanks' button, leave a comment or a rating. It makes me happy to know you liked what I did - and that's a way of improving myself, specially in languages I do not master yet.

Best wishes.
