Character Info

What's up gamers? I'm José Pedro, a Portuguese freelance translator who's been slaying the translation game since 2020. Born and raised at home in '99, I'm still rocking it in my "dark cave" - no one's been able to drag me out yet.

Okay, okay, I did have to leave for three years to study at the University of Minho, but now I'm back and my home is my workplace - at least for now. And just because I'm a professional doesn't mean I can't have a good laugh while slaying these translations.

My degree and experience have given me mad skills in CAT tools, Linguistics, Translation, and Localization. And as die-hard gamer since I was six, you know I'm gonna bring that gaming passion to every game localization project I take on.

People always say you can't have fun while working, but I gotta disagree. When you love what you do, work feels like play. And trust me, I'm all about that joy and fun when I'm slaying these translations.
