Character Info

My name is José Pedro and I am a Portuguese freelance translator who started his journey back in 2020. Born at home in 1999 seems I have got a bit used to this place: no one got me out of my "dark cave" yet. Lies! I studied in the University of Minho for three years and had to move there. However, my home is my workplace, at least for now! Despite being professional I think that a good laugh is always welcome in the workplace.

Both my degree and my experience have provided me with extensive knowledge regarding CAT Tools, Linguistics, Translation, and Localization. What to expect from an avid gamer since the age of six who loves both games and languages? No more than a top tier Game Localization!

"I was always told that you can't have both fun and a job at the same time. Agree to disagree. One who works with joy will for sure have a great time doing so. That's me!"
