About me

I have a Master of Arts in Linguistics with specialisations in sociolinguistics and Brazilian Portuguese linguistics, a Graduate Certificate in Culture, Language and Social Practice, a Bachelor of Arts in English and Italian and the Diploma in Translation for the IT>EN language pair.

I have been translating professionally for eight years. I lived in Italy for four years and I spend four to five weeks per year in Brazil. I specialise in business, financial and marketing translations, and I also have considerable experience translating legal, tourism and technical documents. I work in a variety of industry sectors including, but not limited to, banking, telecommunications, energy, utilities, insurance, real estate and transport.

I also provide proofreading and editing services and hold an editing certification from the University of California, Berkeley.
