Interests

Literature, arts, acting, listening to songs I like, translating, writing, singing...

Learn (and practice) new languages...

Nurturing my passion of buying CD's and that kind of stuff, to be honest most of the translations I submit are of songs that are in my CDs.

Italian and Brazilian music - as you may see, I'm a huge fan of Italian [I have also grown interested in the Sanremo Music Festival, so I'm translating almost all albums of the artists that perform there - and adding several new artists that are often forgotten having existed] and Brazilian music, but there are several artists from other countries and who perform in other languages that I like - and whose songs you'll see being translated by me.

About me

English teacher, currently engaged in post-graduate studies in Portuguese language and Education. For that reason, I might not be around as I have been in the past months and might log in only once or twice a week.

Currently I'm only fluent in English (besides my native Portuguese). I know a little bit of Spanish (I had to study a year of it when I in school, 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 and then searching for what their lyrics meant. I also took half an year of Latin classes back in college - it was an optative course. I'm very fond of studying languages and linguistics, I have done several assignments related to these areas while studying, and I plan to keep on doing them now.

Please read the copyright note I have written and that can be found under any of my translations around. In case you want to reprint my translations elsewhere please contact me first. In case you want to use any translation of mine as a model for yours (you want to make a translation from my translation), please do that as well.

If you like one of my translations, don't hesitate and click the 'Thanks' button, leave a comment or a rating. It makes me happy to know you liked what I did.

Best wishes.
