Source text - English
Both cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and drug treatments such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are commonly used to treat GAD. Meta-analyses suggest CBT is an effective treatment for GAD, reducing anxiety and worry in the short- and long-term. Sertraline, along with the SSRIs escitalopram and paroxetine, is seen as a first-line pharmacologic treatment for GAD. Randomised, placebo controlled trials have
found sertraline efficacious for GAD in adults, children and adolescents. The treatment period ranged from 9 to 12 weeks in these pharmacological trials. A review of antidepressant medication concluded sertraline (along with escitalopram) has the most favourable balance between efficacy, acceptability (side effects and treatment discontinuation) and acquisition cost. Considering these findings, sertraline is a standard choice for treating GAD in clinical settings. While both CBT and SSRIs are beneficial, some evidence suggests that the effects of CBT may be more long lasting.
Translation - Italian
Generalmente, per il trattamento del disturbo d’ansia generalizzato (DAG) si ricorre a terapie cognitivo-comportamentali (TCC) e a trattamenti farmacologici come gli inibitori selettivi della ricaptazione della serotonina (SSRI). Secondo i risultati delle meta-analisi, le TCC sono un trattamento efficace per il DAG, in quanto favoriscono la riduzione dello stato d’ansia e della preoccupazione, a breve e a lungo termine. La sertralina, con gli SSRI escitalopram e paroxetina, è considerata uno dei trattamenti farmacologici di prima linea per il DAG. In sperimentazioni controllate e randomizzate con placebo, la sertralina è risultata efficace per il trattamento del DAG negli adulti, nei bambini e negli adolescenti; per queste sperimentazioni farmacologiche, il periodo di trattamento variava dalle 9 alle 12 settimane. In una revisione di trattamenti antidepressivi, è stato stabilito che la sertralina (con escitalopram) presenta il miglior equilibrio tra efficacia, accettabilità (effetti indesiderati e interruzione del trattamento) e costi d’acquisto. Considerando tali evidenze, in ambito clinico la sertralina è una scelta standard per il trattamento del DAG. Sia le TCC e sia gli SSRI comportano dei benefici, ma al contempo, alcune evidenze dimostrano che gli effetti delle TCC possono durare più a lungo nel tempo.

My name is Angela Massaro and I am passionate about translation. Translation is the keypoint to increase public relations for your business and it gives you the chance to gain new clients; furthermore, translation is fundamental to sell your products and services in different countries from your one. So, if you are interested in hiring a professional Italian translator, that is the occasion to get in contact with me.

I will help you to get the most out of the source text, choosing the right terminology in order to have a clear and complete Italian translation. My translations are characterized by accuracy and carefulness for details. During my academic experience, I gained the know-how to write translations that succeed: in my jobs I always look for clarity in the target text, reporting accurately the message given in the source text. My professional goal is to couple clarity and rigor in order to have excellent translations.

My former employment in the field of consultancy has provided me with extensive exposure to a business environment and I am well versed in business language as well.
I am a native Italian speaker and I have been studying foreign languages for several years. Throughout my academic career, I have studied English, Spanish, French and German. Notwithstanding, I am proficient in English and Spanish.
In 2013, I enrolled in a postgraduate university program and I earned a Master's Degree in Biomedical Translation; before the Master, I have completed a Bachelor Degree in Foreign Languages and Literature.
Now, I am about to finish my post-graduate degree in Specialized Translation from English/Spanish to Italian.

Thanks for paying attention to my profile.

I look forward to hearing from you.
