What Barbara Maher is working on
Oct 3 (posted via  I have just completed a long techno-fantasy novel. Here is the synopsis: It is the year 2229. The world has made great advances in technology. The Savants, robots with a higher intelligence than humans, have genetically engineered a new race of men called the "NUMA" which has a longer lifespan. Since their birth, the NUMA have been persecuted because falsely accused of wanting to replace the human race, so much so that, twenty years beforehand, a civil war took place aimed at their massacre. This was avoided thanks to the guidance of General Luther Wall. Wall was a legendary figure believed to be immortal, who was to teach his people how to reach immortality. That, however, did not take place and indeed the novel begins on the evening of his funeral. ...more, + 4 other entries »

Australian-born, I lived in Italy for 27 years where I worked in several fields of business including the financial world, pharmaceutical industry, sales & marketing, the chemical industry and others. In these positions my first language was Italian with English as my second language, although it is my native tongue.

I completed my NAATI (National Australian Authority for Translators and Interpreters) qualification in translating both ways (EN>IT>EN) in 1989.

I have experience in very difficult and complicated translations and have excellent proof-reading and redacting expertise. My writing skills are superior with a very good and elegant command of both languages, and excellent grammar and spelling.

My particular interests include historical events, politics, architecture and literature.

I pride myself on a quick turnaround, am pro-active, flexible and very easy to deal with.

Thank you for your kind consideration for any project which requires excellent spelling, grammar and a rich and elegant English vocabulary.
