My translation works concern the fields of:
- Tourism and hotellerie (brochures, business documents)
- Cosmetics and Beauty (brochures, product descriptions and cosmetic protocols)
- History and Archaeology (essays and articles from specialised magazines)
- Linguistics (articles from specialised magazines)
- Cinema and entertainment (articles and interviews for specialised magazines)
- Gastronomy (menu and business documents)
- Literature (novel extracts)
My education background and natural inclinations also make me a lover of every kind of artistic creation and interested in Human Sciences, like Anthropology , Sociology and Philosophy. I’m very fond of studying Advertising and Marketing techniques. And I adore travelling , of course!
Along with translation, I’ve worked in the tourist industry, as hotel receptionist, guest relation agent and spa receptionist in luxury hotels of different Italian regions, from (Sicily, Tuscany and Lombardy).
I had the opportunity to work as a conference hostess in many occasions, and the most challenging of them was the G8 Summit in Syracuse (April, 22-24th 2009).
