Country: United Kingdom
I was born in Italy but have lived around Europe for the last 13 years and in England for the last 10 years. As a result I have experience of living and working in a variety of different languages and cultures. Whilst at university in Padova (1999-2004) I travelled during the summer to various countries in South and South-East Asia (Laos, India, Indonesia, Vietnam) to teach English as a foreign language to both children and adults. After my first experience of teaching in Asia I began working as a freelance translator. I specialised in films, writing subtitles and voiceovers, and also worked with books. Mostly I have done Italian to English translation but I am equally comfortable with English to Italian translation. With over ten years of translation and teaching experience I have shown myself to be a professional capable of providing accurate translation and effective teaching. In terms of translation I specialise in scientific translation and educational content but over the years I have encountered such a wide range of texts that I believe I’m comfortable with almost anything.
