Service Description

I have been working in the tourist industry as a tour leader, translator and interpreter for eight years, so I can say that travel and tourism is my specialisation and my favourite field.
I have worked as a teacher for 6 years. I used to teach English and French to Italians and Italian to foreigners, so I feel confident in proofreading too. Working as a teacher also gave me the chance to translate some texts and articles about anthropology, literature, sociology, history, ethnic and cultural studies.
