Pimentel, Janine

I hold a BA in Modern Languages and Literature (English and German Studies) as well as a Master’s degree in Linguistics from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. Ever since my Master’s programme I have been interested in lexical resources for translators. In 2012 I received a PhD in Translation Studies from the University of Montreal. Throughout my PhD I worked as a research assistant at Observatoire de linguistique Sens-Texte and taught undergraduate students. After completing my PhD I taught graduate and post-graduate courses in translation at the University of Montreal. I have lived in Rio de Janeiro since 2013. I did post-doctoral research at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, and in 2014 I was offered a permanent post at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. I currently teach undergraduate and graduate courses on translation. My research interests are: specialized translation, terminology and corpus linguistics.
