Samba de Janeiro - Wilgen translates into Brazilian Portuguese
The work here is diverse and I can contribute my professional skills
Briefly introduce yourself: Who are you and what are you doing?
Hello, my name is Wilgen and I am a Brazilian journalist and I recently started working at alugha. I just finished giving the Portuguese version of the alugha homepage a little Brazilian flair. I translated the content from German to Portuguese. Alugha is starting to enter the Brazilian market and I am contributing my journalistic competence to help them become known there. I also help to increase alugha’s level of awareness in Germany. Of course, I am also going to write Portuguese articles for the blog and translate them for the German market, if there’s demand.
Which three keywords describe you best?
Oh my goodness! I am persistent, competent and I love learning new things...
What is your favourite thing to do in your free time?
My husband, my son and I love to do sports together, therefore we train capoeira two times a week. If we have time, we go to the gym. Apart from that, we make use of all the seasons in Germany: In the spring, we do bike tours. In the summer, we go to the lakes since there are no beaches close by. In the Autumn, we take long walks in the forest and during winter, we go skiing whenever it is possible. Furthermore, I love meeting friends, having barbecues, traveling, and before I go to bed, I like to read a book or watch a film.
What guided you to alugha?
I already knew the Korz family for a couple of years. Our children have been friends since kindergarten. One day, Bernd invited us to a concert and we talked about work. He invited me to work for alugha and I immediately was excited.
