Service Description

I am a native Italian speaker and a professional translator from English and Spanish to Italian. In the past I have specialised in documents of a legal and technical nature, and now provide a broad spectrum of translation services from English into Italian and vice versa.
During my time at university I translated a variety of texts on a broad range of subjects from tourist leaflets to entire plays. I enjoyed the challenge of ensuring a high standard of accuracy and fidelity to the meaning and the spirit of the original text whilst assuring conformity to Italian grammar, syntax and idioms.
My professional experience in legal translation stressed the importance of attention to detail, whilst under pressure to provide translations and revisions in time. This work required specific terminology, attention to punctuation, capitalisation, indentation and paragraph division and layout features.
Due to my keen interest in technology, I enjoyed recent opportunities to localise Samsung’s voice recognition application into Italian, learn the basics of SEO and translate a variety of EU patents.
I have recently settled in the UK to continue to improve my linguistic skills and pursue a career in this field.
