Luana Cavalcanti

UX designer in Dublin, Ireland

Hi, my name is Luana a Multilingual UX designer specialising in SEO and l10n.

Some people call me a walking encyclopedia or Dora the explorer.

I have travelled 64 countries so far and I nurture a passion for learning languages.

At age 22, I created a project called Playing with Kids, it was aimed at teaching a second language for disadvantaged kids in Brazil, through my achievements and blogging the progress about the project at that time I was invited to represent Brazil at a youth congress organized by Unesco in the United States.

Today I synthesize the needs and goals of users, product managers, marketing and salespeople, user researchers, writers, localizers, developers and testers to ensure the best possible visual design and user experience.
