For the past 3 years I have worked for an Italian furniture and textile design firm and handle all in-house translations from press releases, features and editorials to sales contracts, catalogues, product specifications and all sorts of promotional material. I arrange import/exports, shipping, travel arrangements, International design trade shows and any english language correspondance required by the company. I use both English and Italian professionally on a daily basis.

As a freelancer:
Multimedia version of the printed repertoires of Roma Contemporanea 1996-1998, a publication documenting art exhibitions in Rome.
Translations of academic publications for the University of Verona.
Translations and revisions of a business/marketing nature for prominent Italian companies.

I have an MA in Italian Language, Literature and Culture and presented my dissertation on the translation of Calvino's "Fiabe Italiane".

I'm a native English speaker and have lived and worked full-time in Italy for the past 4 years. I am extremely comfortable, both culturally and linguistically, with my source language.
I care about the quality, accuracy and punctuality of the jobs entrusted to me and experience has given me strong proof-reading and research skills.
