About me
Based in Sussex, I am a native English translator and proofreader with a First in Languages and Contemporary European Studies from the University of Southampton.

My language pairs are DE>EN and IT>EN, and I am well acquainted with South Tyrolean German (and more generally Southern Bavarian), along with South Tyrolean and Sicilian Italian (and more generally Southern Italian).

My background is in travel (working in the luxury travel industry in Italy and Greece), English teaching (with experience in Italy, the UK and Portugal) and key interests of mine are economics, food, politics, Southern Europe and urbanism.

I have experience translating and writing in the following fields:

2008 Financial Crisis
Birth and Marriage Certificates
Democracy (electoral systems, accountability, corruption)
European colonialism (Irredentism, Italianisation of South Tyrol, Italian colonialism, Portuguese colonialism)
Food (Italian, Portuguese, Mediterranean)
Globalisation
International organisations (EU, European institutions, UN, World Bank, WTO, accountability, trade)
Italian regions (South Tyrol, Sicily, Puglia, Veneto)
Political regimes (Italian Fascism, National Socialism, East Germany, Estado Novo)
Social policy (the welfare state, pensions, fertility, gender
Tourism material (luxury travel, Italy, Greece, villas, sailing)
Urbanism (in particular the intersection of politics, architecture and/or language)
