Bio
After graduating from the University of Glasgow with a first class degree in Italian language and literature, with exams (Higher Ordinary) in German and English literature, I headed off to Japan(!) for two years to teach English.
On my return to Europe I found work in Italy as an English teacher and continued to teach and translate- two jobs that are so different and yet so similar: that for me have always gone hand in hand. For both one needs to have a passion for languages; both have a source language and a target language and it is always important to strive for the meaning, rather than just looking at the words.
For the last two years I have been freelance, still teaching but becoming more involved in translating, my true love.
Over the years I have translated various texts for students and clients of the school: academic theses, military texts, legal texts and technical texts.
More recently I have been working closely with a translation company, translating restricted submarine manuals and various technical texts, including a book on architecture and a lot of tourism translations, specifically websites for hotels and agriturismi. I also do translations for clients of the local English schools, covering a marvellous miscellany of fields.
I am something of a perfectionist and will spend hours on a single word until I'm sure the translation is accurate. That said I have never missed a deadline.
