I am highly multi-faceted, young and eager to work. I do best with Audio books, and fantasy characters. I have no problems with documentary work or commercial advertising.

Skill Overview

English to Portuguese Translation

Hello, My name is Manuel Santos Junior, and I would love to work with you. I’ve been working as a translator basically all my life starting from childhood. I'm a born and bread Portuguese speaking Angolan who grew up with a Diplomat for a mother, consequently travelling and growing up in many English speaking countries such as South Africa,Zambia and the United Arab Emirates ( where I gained more of a westernized American accent due to the western expats).I am the perfect fit for this job because my whole life has been spent learning to navigate between both languages, understanding the nuances of idioms, expressions and sayings that can not be directly translated because they relate more to culture as opposed to strict linguistic sense,making a direct translation nonsensical. Understanding the culture of language is an important part of translation, which is why I'm a perfect fit, other than understanding the culture of English I also understand Portuguese, its rhythms and tendencies
