THE COMPLETE VERSION
My name is Francielly Torres and I'm the human behind Wordly Wolf.
I was born in Brazil and moved to the UK when I was a teenager. I overcame the huge challenge that was adapting to a new country and a different culture. It was certainly not easy learning an additional language from scratch, but it was worth it. I feel that my love for languages began at that very moment. So, I've been helping others bridge the gap between the two languages and cultures since then.
While at school I completed GCSEs in Portuguese, Spanish and English. My fascination with languages continued and lead me to a degree in Linguistics and TESOL (Teaching English to Speaker of Other Languages) from Manchester Metropolitan University. The course provided me with essential knowledge of how languages work and how to communicate effectively in multilingual and multicultural environments.
To further my education and hone my skills, I also completed an MA in Translation from The University of Bristol. I learned invaluable skills in translation (including computer-aided translation), subtitling, editing and proofreading. I also learned theories of translation and the different translation approaches.
I am dedicated to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) so I take courses and workshops to improve my knowledge and skills base. I strive to provide professional services tailored to your specific needs.
