I have a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Languages and Literatures and a diploma in English to Italian literary translation, I have worked as a translator since 1996, first on a part-time basis as an employee of two companies in the food and textile fields, then on a full-time basis.

I utilize OmegaT 2.5.5_03 and Wordfast Anywhere.

I am curious, meticulous, respectful of deadlines, available to work at the weekends; always reachable on my mobile phone and/or Skype.

I love this job because each time I tackle a new text I learn new words, therefore new features of the world surrounding us: in such a way I can satisfy my natural curiosity.
Moreover I think that each word has a story that tells a lot about us and our fate: translating helps us to get to know and understand ourselves better, which is a very important step on the way to happiness.
