A translator...


I started my career translating subtitles and travelling everywhere to work for my company at Film Festivals. This gave me the opportunity to improve my comprehension of the nuances and the registers of a language.

Thanks to a master in one of the major Italian Business Schools, I acquired the vocabulary and the mind-set a thorough Humanistic preparation lacks.
Therefore, I have been able to translate business and legal texts.

Some of my translations


- Trademarks for the OHIM (EU Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market) – ongoing project
- EU magazines
- Legislation published on the Polish Official Journal
- Legal summons
- Personal documents (diplomas, driving licences, birth certificates, Pension&Insurance schemes etc.)
- Contracts
- Articles of associations
- Call for tenders
- Company presentations
- Fashion catalogues
- Advertising (insurance, banks, white goods, textiles etc.)
- Chamber of Commerce documentation
- Commercial correspondence
- Instructions for paper and packaging machinery
- Audio guide of the Westminster Abbey
- Web site of Naar Tour Operator
- 4 chapters of a book on Arco Latino (Franco-Spanish-Italian Association)

Just some of the films I translated


- Elles by Luis Galvao Teles
- Retrospective on Robert Kramer
- Yizo-Yizo (various directors)
- Split wide open by Dev Benegal
- Waco: A New Revelation by Stephen M. NovakJason, Van Vleet
- Death of a composer by Peter Greenaway
- Padurea spanzuratilor by Liviu Ciulei
- Stare De Fapt by Stere Gulea
- Reconstituirea by Lucian Pintilie
- Retrospective on Munk
