About me
Shalom! Sono italiana, ottimo inglese L2 e francese, L3, solo passivo. Ho un diploma accademico della scuola Interpreti e Traduttori SSIT del 1986 e tanto altro studio libero e aggiornamenti vari.

La mia vita professionale è iniziata prestissimo, lavorando come interna in ambienti diplomatico-culturali (biblioteche e uffici stampa) in cui l'inglese era la lingua essenziale per la comunicazione giornaliera per una vastissima gamma di mansioni. Ho tradotto anche tanti libri di fantascienza, saggi, testi religiosi.

Dal 1999 ho iniziato la libera professione, con una pausa maternità. Non sono una professionista improvvisata, penso di saper offrire una collaborazione accurata, flessibile e a misura del mio interlocutore. Per i prezzi.... modesti, nello standard. Mi piace ricercare il termine giusto e curare la revisione finale, l'impaginazione su misura... Sono iscritta all'Albo Periti di Roma dal 2005, assevero atti e traduzioni di documenti. Le agenzie, e più raramente i clienti diretti, mi trovano in rete anche attraverso ProZ o TranslatorsCafé.

Non lavoro invariabilmente dal venerdì pomeriggio al sabato al tramonto. Chiedo un acconto per progetti rilevanti e un Purchase Order o ordine scritto per conferma: purtroppo in rete capita ancora la "fregatura" con chi non ha voglia di pagare.

Shalom! I am an experienced Italian-mothertongue professional translator, my English is a correct L2, my French an L3. I run my own small business as a free-lancer in Rome. I graduated at the Interpreters' School in Rome some 25 years ago and I started translating science-fiction books, that I like a lot. Professionally, I grew slowly in international cultural environments as an interpreter-translator-multilingual officer for English native or near-native speakers in English-speaking environments for a few years. Then I launched my freelance business in Rome. I can offer a sound English-Italian combination, I am flexible, careful and ready for attentive custom-made collaborations. Detail-oriented, providing ad-hoc paginations and reviews ... . In 2005 I was recognised sworn translator (expert translator/certifier) by the Rome Court so I also translate/interpret and certify in Rome. I try to keep prices sustainable for small and big clients, and I am reliable.

My weekly break spans from Fri afternoon to Saturday at sunset. For medium to large projects, I prefer a commitment in writing and a % prepayment; unfortunately the Net still offers outsourcers with no will to pay.
