Brasilva Media offers something new: an additional media service abroad.

Our origins lie in translation and interpreting. We certainly do not pretend that we can do your job as a journalist! But we can assist you with your exclusive interview with a sports celebrity or other key figures from abroad. Our network is extensive and can be easily mobilised to reach people abroad.

Would you like to interview a famous foreigner? We have the contacts. We can arrange contact with celebrities and key figures through our network but we can also put you in contact with journalists who speak the language of these celebrities and key figures.

For example, we can put you in contact with South American football players from the major foreign football leagues and arrange interviews with them. We are able to do this due to our contacts with journalists there. Journalists who speak the language of football players and have an affinity with the sport of the interviewee. This gives you an exclusive interview since both they and the person being interviewed can speak freely in their own native languages! All those nuances that rich languages have will come through and because they will understand any play on words or puns.

Your advantages
The written piece that you produce can be translated by one of our native speakers in any language that may be required. This is true added value! Your reporter can remain at the office doing his or her daily work. No need to travel abroad and, more importantly, you will have an exclusive interview where what has been left unsaid also comes through. Read more!
