Professional practices Danilo Allegra endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I'm an Italian freelance translator and proofreader specialized in the medical/ pharmaceutical field. I work with language pairs EN>IT, ES>IT and DE>IT.

My Master's in Medical Biotechnology and PhD in Molecular Medicine are a guarantee of sound technical expertise.
I obtained my PhD in Germany from an international graduation program in English. Therefore, I acquired a perfect familiarity with the technical terminology of both languages.
In Germany I also worked in close collaboration with researchers from Central and South America; this greatly improved my Spanish, which I perfected during a learning trip (5 months) in Central America.

I've been working full-time as a professional translator for almost four years now, translating clinical trials documents, patents, drugs' leaflets (e.g. for Bayer and Teva), supporting material for physicians and patients (for Shire), documents issued by regulatory agencies (such as WHO and EMA), scientific papers, and training materials. In total, I translated more than 300.000 words of biomedical texts, from German and English into Italian.

I also work as a science writer for TED-Ed, the Italian Cancer Research Association (AIRC) - the largest private fund raiser for cancer research in Italy - publishing house Zanichelli, and the universities of Catania and Pavia. This means my translated texts are not only precise and accurate, but also well written.

I work with SDL Trados 2015. My average daily turnaround is 2.000 words. I have no problems working on weekends, if necessary; and you can be sure I'll never miss a deadline, since I plan my work very carefully.
In case you need a free translation test, I'll be happy to take it.

You'll find my CV in my profile, including references of the agencies I worked with and a list of my scientific publications. Please contact me for any additional information.
I hope we'll have a chance to work together.
