I'm a literary translator based in Lombardy (Italy) and Italian native
. Moved by a great passion for foreign languages and literature, I decided to combine these two elements, translating literary texts, both for
adults and for children. I am a reliable and efficient person, highly motivated
and eager to learn new skills.

For almost three years up to now I've been working
for some important Italian publishing houses both as a literary translator from
Norwegian, English and German into Italian and as a reader of texts in these three languages.

My production includes books belonging to different
literary genres (children's literature, literary essays - nature, psychology, politics, religion -, memoires, erotic novel and humorous fiction), plus texts concerning tourism, travel and
gastronomy, but I am willing to improve my skills and keep on working in these
fields, which I find culturally interesting and stimulating.

If you are looking for a conscientious person who pays deep attention to detail, do not hesitate to contact me. I would
be enthusiastic at the possibility of collaborating with you and your work :)
