About me

My ultimate goal is to deliver accurate and outstanding translations. And I firmly believe that the only way to do it is by going beyond the terminological level and developing an in-depth understanding of the subject matter of each source text. This is why my works do not sound like translations at all: because I aim at providing texts that make my clients think they were drafted by a finance and/or a law specialist, which is what I aim to become.

Furthermore, I am committed to establishing sound professional relationships, based on mutual trust and on transparent and impeccable communication. 

My work experience

- Financial translator (EN>IT) at Interactive Brokers (2019 — today), “an automated global electronic market maker and broker” (Bloomberg) that offers trade execution and clearing services to institutional and professional clients worldwide.
What I’ve done: I translated the company’s website, trading and account management platforms and mobile apps, communications with retail and institutional clients and knowledge base articles about regulations, procedures, and instructions.
What I’ve learned: I acquired hands-on experience and received on-the-job training about a wide range of topics, such as the financial markets, economics, the brokerage industry, order types, margin trading, securities regulation, anti-money laundering procedures, stocks, bonds, options, futures, mutual funds, ETFs and much more

- Freelance translator and interpreter (2017 — 2018). I worked for multiple language service providers as well as for private and public sector organizations.
