Bio

I fell in love with English at the age of 6, when I was given a children’s picture book, “Hello Children!”
that came with a 45-vinyl record, with sing-along songs to learn English
words... 
Travelling and learning languages have been my greatest passions ever since.

I am a university-trained free-lance conference interpreter and translator with 30 years of experience, providing Interpreting and translation services in Italian, English and Russian, namely:


  • Simultaneous interpreting

  • Consecutive interpreting

  • Liaison interpreting

  • Court interpreting

  • Consulting services, recruiting interpreters' teams

  • English to Italian translations
  • Russian to Italian translations

Education

I hold a university diploma in Translation and a master's degree in Conference Interpretation from the Advanced
School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators (SSLMIT) of Trieste
for English and Russian. I have been working as a free-lance conference interpreter and translator since 1990.

My native tongue is Italian, and I was educated mainly in Italy, but I speak very fluent English, as I
started travelling to England as a teenager. While at university, I was given
the opportunity to spend one term at Heriott-Watt, Edinburgh and one in Moscow
as an exchange student. Russian is my second foreign language, but I was very
lucky to start studying it in a special language high-school at the age of 14.
Russians often ask me whether I have Russian relatives and are surprised when I
tell them that I don’t!

My main areas of expertise are Banking, Finance, Law, Marketing, Medicine and Surgery. In addition, I have
also worked successfully
and gained experience in several other areas, such as:

Agriculture and food production, Automotive industry, Architecture, Building & Construction,
Cinema & Home Entertainment, Fashion, Clothing and Accessories, Energy, the
Environment, EU policies, Gas, Oil and Electricity, HR, Industrial Relations,
International cooperation, Local Government policies, IT, Logistics,
Microelectronics, Pharmaceuticals, Iron & Steel Technology, Textiles and
Textile Machinery, Tourism, Training and Education and Urban planning.

I have worked for, among others: Agusta, Ansaldo, Canon, Costa Crociere, Dalmine, Disney, ENEL, ENI, ENICHEM, ETF
(European Training Foundation), Europ Assistance, Ferrero, FIAT, Gucci, HP,IBM,
Iveco, KPMG Consulting, Kraft, Louis Vuitton, Merck, Motorola, Novartis,Olivetti,
Perfetti, Procter & Gamble, Rhône Poulenc, STMicroelectronics,

Swarovski, Telecom Italia, Tiscali, Unicredit, ESO (European School of Oncology), 
the Bocconi University of Milan, the Lombardy Region, the European Union, the
UN, the OSCE and many others.

I have interpreted at over 1000 conferences and meetings, including many technical
ones. I am an experienced
legal interpreter, providing both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting in the legal field. I regularly work with deposition service providers at depositions of Italian witnesses. These assignments require the utmost accuracy and a reliable note-taking technique.

I have assisted US law firms at court hearings, depositions and video depositions on several occasions, in the following areas:

  • aviation litigation

  • class actions

  • breach of contract, unjust enrichment

  • fraud, corruption

  • industrial property, intellectual property, trademarks, patents

  • unfair trade practices, unfair competition, misleading advertising

  • personal injury 
  • product liability, professional liability

I have provided consecutive interpreting in the areas of finance and accounting on several occasions, for examples at due diligence
meetings, on-site internal audits, at interviews with company managers and
personnel,
Board of Directors meetings, financial top managers meetings and
technical meetings
.

I love interpreting at medical conferences for doctors, nurses and patients and I have notched up over 250
days of simultaneous medical interpreting, many of which in oncology.

I always prepare accurately in view of each interpretation assignment and complete specific glossaries for the relevant terminology to be used.

I work in accordance with a strict code of professional ethics. I am bound by professional secrecy with regard to any confidential information disclosed during assignments and I would always abide by non-competition rules in my relations with agencies and clients. I belong to AIIC, the International Association of Conference Interpreters
based in Geneva and I am a
voting member of ATA, the American Translators Association, certified for translation
from English into
Italian. My professional domicile is in Milan, but I’m always happy to travel for work in Italy and abroad.

As an AIIC consultant interpreter I can assist you in recruiting conference interpreters worldwide for virtually any
language combination.

If you need any additional information or just want to exchange a few words with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
