Service Description

Born and bred in Italy, I have enhanced my language skills through more than 20 years in the banking and insurance industries as a translator and proofreader. I translate from English to Italian with ease and accuracy and I offer in depth knowledge of banking and insurance parlance in both languages.

“It is my great pleasure to write this feedback for Mara. She is very professional, super responsive, and very punctual in handling projects. She is also a great team player. In sum, you can trust her and she never lets you down. I am already working with her on more projects. ”

In addition to my translating and proofreading skills, I am highly computer literate – both literally and figuratively! In 1992 I was one of the first in Italy to own a home PC. I assembled it myself from scratch and understand the internal workings as well as the functionalities.

I am fully knowledgeable with computer applications and very proficient with MS Office. I created a number of database applications with MS Access for previous employers (AON being one) that still serve as essential parts of their businesses. I am also conversant with basic HTML and Java. I use a CAT tool; more specifically, I use SDL TRADOS 2011 and Wordfast Anywhere.

“This is the second time we hired Mara, and we are extremely happy with her work. She is one of the most professional Italian translators on Elance. Her work was accurate, delivered before expected and quality was excellent. We would definitely use her...
