I am a professional Italian translator based in the UK with more than 15 years’ experience.
By creating well-written, accurate translations, I help businesses get their message across, ensuring that they make a positive impact in their target market.
As a native Italian speaker I provide translations from English into Italian and French into Italian, as well as editing and proofreading of existing translations into Italian.
I specialise in business, marketing and medical translations. I have particular expertise in medical research, of which I have been a passionate learner for the past 10 years and I have produced innumerable translations.
I hold a first-class BA honours in Italian Literature, as well as an MA in Bilingual Translations, and I regularly undertake courses to improve my understanding of the subject matter (which I believe is crucial for a high-quality translation) and hone my writing skills.
Having successfully passed the Institute of Translation and Interpreting exam, I am also a fully qualified ITI member (MITI).
