About myself

 

My name is Caroline Varella Gonsioroski, and I am an English and Brazilian Portuguese Translator and Proofreader. I do translations from and into Portuguese. My specialisation is legal documents, but I also have knowledge about non-profit organisations and social action. I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker fluent in English and current living in Ireland.

 

Translation

What does it mean to be a translator?

I believe in the integration and inclusion of cultures. Translation for me is about helping people to understand each other and bring those cultures together. More than a profession, to be a Translator is a fundamental activity because we help people by reducing the walls and boarders of languages, even if always staying in the backstage like we do.

My experience 

I have experience working with legal documents, but also knowledge of Nutrition and special interest in the social action field. Having also worked in the architecture course, I am familiarised with this area. I started with a Nutrition degree and changed for Translation, Portuguese and English. Being a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker, I have been living in Ireland for two years, where I acquired fluency in the English language and three General English certificates. I will translate from and into English and Brazilian Portuguese. Nevertheless, I have experience as well translating in the language pair English-Spanish.

Rates

I am a reliable and responsible Translator who will give you a reasonable price based on the word counting of your document. May you have a document that needs to be translated, you can send it to my personal e-mail carolinevarellag@gmail.com, where I will analise your file myself without the interference of third parties, and always maintaining a professional discretion. If you wish to know a little better about my work, you can also consult my Facebook page www.facebook.com/carolinevarellatranslations and a send me a message there.

Proofreading

A professional translation requires time to be done and finalised. Most people do not see the importance of the document being deeply checked by a second Translator, because of time and money manners. However, even the most experienced Translator may commit small mistakes. We must always remember we are not dealing with machines or computerised translation, but human beings. Proofreading in theory is a faster job than translating, but as important as. It is basically about reading the translated document all over again, as many times it is necessary, comparing it to the original and looking for typos, misspelling and grammar mistakes.

Knowing about this dislike of some companies about this process in translation and aware of the unreasonable charges some Translators might ask for this job, I always give a fair price for my proofreading. I proofread only from and into my mother tongue, which is Brazilian Portuguese, in order to maintain the high quality level of the translation. If you have doubts about proofreading prices, do not hesitate in contact me on carolinevarellag@gmail.com.

Prós e contras na aprendizagem da língua italiana para falantes do português

Aprender uma língua, não importa quão similar ela seja a sua, é sempre difícil e exige empenho e – muita – determinação. Após meses de quase desistência, eu resolvi escrever um post para reclamar mesmo. No entanto, depois de ficar encarando a página em branco do computador na minha frente, percebi que, além de não …
