Service Description

I work from wonderful Pittsburgh, and have lived in Italy, Slovakia, and other parts of the East Coast. I have a long background in academic and cultural work that renders me capable of doing a broad range of tasks.

I am accomplished writer with a strong background in art history, Italian, and European studies. I have had many articles published over the last 15 years and have written academic work at the graduate level.

As a translator, I am able to translate Italian to English and Slovak to English, and to proofread and provide specialized formatting if necessary. I have 10 years experience translating Italian to English and 2 years translating Slovak to English. I am also able to do simultaneous interpretation, including over the internet.

My background and interests are so diverse to make me a good candidate for many projects, but I am especially knowledgeable in the following areas: History; Folklore; Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting; Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc.; Anthropology; General / Conversation / Greetings / Letters; Genealogy; Architecture.

I am a proficient user of Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, OmegaT, and Powerpoint on both PC and Mac platforms. I am able to do complex formatting if your project so requires. I am also an active user of social media technologies, especially Facebook and Twitter. I blog at http://adventuresofmaria.blogspot.com.
