Professional practices Barbara Maher endorses's Professional Guidelines.
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.
