My name is Twylla Pimenta, and I'm a freelance translator, proofreader and LQA linguist. I work with the language pairs <English to Brazilian Portuguese>
and <Brazilian Portuguese to English>.
I currently live in Santos, on the coast of the São Paulo estate in Brazil.
I've been fascinated with languages and all their intricacy ever since I had the opportunity to study abroad in the US for 1 year (where I completed my junior year of high school). After this amazing experience, I knew that I had to pursue language studies in University, and after that, being a freelance linguist proved to be the next natural step for me.
