Professional practices Carolina Nicosia endorses's Professional Guidelines.


I'm Carolina and I hold a Master of Law Degree from La Sapienza University of Rome, specialised in IP and Entertainment Law.

When I started working as a lawyer, I decided to combine my legal competencies with my aptitude for languages. I lived in Portugal, thus I developed specialised
qualifications in translations from Portuguese.
I've got a Portuguese C1 Language Certificate provided by the Camões Institute of Lisbon, and the TOLES Higher Certificate.

Italian is my mother tongue and have a specific knowledge of Portuguese and English. Although I am based in Italy I often come back to Portugal, in the effort to be constantly up-to-date with the ever changing Portuguese terminology.

  As a lawyer, I am aware that clarity and accuracy are paramount when drafting legal documents. Form is substance: a poorly written translation can cause a lawyer the loss of money and reputation.

  As an IP lawyer, I know how patents in particular, require specific technical knowledge – a slight inaccuracy can cost millions.

I translate a variety of legal documents, including:

  • Certificates
  • Contracts
  • Terms and conditions
  • Privacy policies
  • Trademarks & Patents
  • Court Proceedings & Disputes
  • Wills
  • Accident Claims
  • Commercial Property

You can trust in a highly specialised lawyer translator in your specific legal field.

Why choose me?

  • If there are any delicate or sensitive documents to be translated, I will issue the matching solution to the document you require ensuring accuracy and quality;
  • Deadlines must come above all else; I work seven days a week, not charging a higher rate for weekend working being on call in any situation of need; and
  • I value the importance of the human aspect of collaborating, in order to build lasting working relationship based on an open dialogue, trust and mutual respect.

I wish to bring you my competence bridging the gap existing between words, cultures and justice. I only translate into my mother tongue.


I also deliver regular translations on a voluntary basis for TED, thus I can provide subtitling services via Amara platform.
