About me

I am a freelance translator based in the United Kingdom. I translate from Italian into British English, my mother tongue. I offer a number of language services including translation, localisation and proofreading.

Qualifications

MA Applied Translation Studies

In 2015 I completed MA in Applied Translation Studies, graduating with a merit. During this course I achieved distinctions in specialised Italian translation and audio-visual translation. I gained experience in different genres of translation and a number of CAT tools, as well as a solid grounding in translation theory.

BA Italian and Linguistics

In 2014 I graduated from the University of Leeds with first class honours in BA Italian and Linguistics. I achieved first class marks in Italian language modules and a distinction in spoken Italian. During this course, I spent a year in Rome teaching English in a middle school, which improved my understanding both of Italian, through constant contact with native speakers, and of English, through teaching the language. At graduation, I was awarded the Lucy Whitmell prize for my "exceptional level of linguistic awareness and uncommon skills in translation".
