My name is Elsa.
I am a translator, writer, voiceover talent, all in one, specialized in the Leisure industry, with language teaching and literary translation making up for the rest of my time.
What is the Leisure industry? It's a vast and fast growing sector of the economy that encompasses the whole tourism sector, entertainment, recreation and even sports. Everything you do in your free time, including visit, read, watch, listen, eat, drink.
If you need reassurance about my qualifications, you'll like to know that I have a translation degree from UNL Lisbon, and 3 teaching certifications (one for French, one for Portuguese and another for e-learning ). I also trained in Writing for Television and Cinema and in Theatre (ex-Cours Florent alumna here!) .
As for my professional expertise, it is built over 20 years across the globe, for a variety of clients and learners (companies and high schools in Lisbon and Grenoble; the European Institutions in Brussels and Luxembourg; the Instituto Camões of Portugal in their location in Goa, India; the University of Salamanca, Spain; Bayer in Nunhems in The Netherlands...)
Along the way, I've built a network of colleagues, experts in a variety of fields, with whom I can consult or to whom, when needed and always with my clients' consent, I can delegate work.
I am perfectly bilingual in French and Portuguese, and have acquired a high fluency in English, Dutch and Spanish.
I am also a mother and choose to work from home (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) as much as possible to be more available for my family.
Fortunately, I enjoy as much working alone on my computer as I thrive on the energy of a classroom or a brainstorming session with fellow translators and copywriters.
Let see together what I can do for you. Contact me here.
