Service Description

My work appears on various sites, including those of the largest internet South African travel company and of a French hotel directory.

Another of my specialties is proofreading; editing my clients' work for easy flow and readability. I am very familiar with grammatical and spelling variants and work in both American and British English. I currently proofread for Airways, a monthly American journal.

I am a fluent Italian speaker, and can provide translations Italian to English and English to Italian which are exact both in terms of grammar and semantics.

This is what one of my satisfied clients had to say:
"Collaborating on this project with Sandy was great. She is very hard-working and her translation skills exceed expectation. She is my first port of call for further work in Italian."
