“Without translation I would be limited to the boundaries of my own Country. The Translator is my most important ally. He introduces me to the world” (I. Calvino)
I am a Freelance Translator living in Italy and working in EN-FR> IT (native) combination.
Passionate about art and literature with a Degree in Foreign Languages (graduated in American Literature and Contemporary Art with a thesis on the American Art Collectors and the Guggenheim Museums ) I have enhanced my linguistic education with a Master’s in Translation qualifying as a professional translator (IATI Qualified Translator according to Italian law 4/2013).
I combined my literature background with 9 years of business experience in the Fashion Industry working as in-house translator/interpreter and later as Translator and Travel Manager for a worldwide mass market company where I acquired a different and even higher level of professional experience. After gaining experience as staff translator I decided to start working freelance. I also improved my skills by attending webinars and on-line training courses in specific professional activities (legal, medical,.. )
I have a creative attitude and a tendency for teamwork as I consider it a way of building professional relationships and sharing linguistic skills.
Translating is for me balancing words with their multiple meanings and undertones. Experimenting with different language codes and cultures is the key to constantly learn and broaden my view of the world with a positive approach.
I work with accuracy and reliability on different projects directly for the client or for translation agencies and meet all needs and deadlines.
I offer translation – interpreting- proofreading- localization services working on:
- General texts/ Editorial /Technical/Tourism/Business/IT
- Marketing and Advertising: promotional, brochures, leaflets, PDFs and Power Point presentations, etc
- Medical/Legal (with a team of consultants)
- Website localization
I am active member of IATI (International Association Translators & Interpreters) working with the Association to organize translation courses online in different language pairs, organize seminars, publications and related activities.
