Welcome to my profile!

After cooperating with an Italian translation agency as in-house translator and proofreader for several years, I started working as a freelance translator for agencies based in Italy and abroad.

I am extremely accurate and always keep a close eye to detail in order to obtain a fluent target text that can satisfy the most demanding of clients also under tight deadlines! This is why I believe that a good translator must have an excellent knowledge of their working languages as well as first, and foremost, of their native language.

These are the steps I take when approaching a text to be translated:

- careful and accurate reading of the original text. According to Hans Georg Gadamer, reading is like translating, because a correct overall comprehension of the source text is the key foundation of a good translation;
- then I start writing the actual translation, making use of effective search tools, i.e. mono- and bilingual dictionaries, specific glossaries and the internet to keep the pace with the ever evolving nature of languages;
- finally I check and revise the translated text.

Services offered:
- translations from German, English and Spanish into Italian

- editing and proofreading

Still not sure if I am the right person for you? Read what my clients think of me!
