Quality is my primary focus in both translation and interpreting.

I usually team up with colleagues who are native speakers when carrying out IT>FR and IT>EN translation assignments and consult experts when the specific nature of translations so requires.

I usually pay great attention to a thorough and accurate study of the requested subject fields.

I'm dynamic, accurate and professional - a natural born translator!



I am SDL certified for SDL Trados Studio 2014 for Translators - Getting Started
