I am a dedicated, accurate and responsible linguist who always tackles each translation job as an opportunity to improve her skills and subject matter knowledge. I am computer literate (Word for Windows, Excel, Powerpoint, OmegaT). I have a genuine interest in medicine and pharmacology and enjoy reading medical magazines and books. I am keen on speaking reading, and writing in English.

I graduated in 1998 from the Advanced School of Modern Languages (SSLMIT) in Trieste, Italy then went right into teaching. However, I never stopped translating and furthering my skills. I earned a diploma in medical translation in 2009 and the DPSI (Diploma in Public Service Interpreting), Institute of Linguists, London - Law Option, in 2011.
