lgltkim550oehzvrebuq.jpgI am a language expert with over 20 years of experience as a full-time English to Italian translator.

Throughout this time I have nurtured continuing partnerhips with several leading international companies, CROs and quality-conscious translation agencies. In recent years I mainly focused on medical/life science translations and I earned a Master for Medicine and Pharmacology translation at a respected Italian institute. In this field I can cope with several types of texts, including clinical trials and study protocols, package inserts, summaries of product characteristics according to the most recent EMA guidelines, medical market research questionnaires, medical equipment manuals, scientific articles, etc. My favorite therapeutic areas are gynaecology, oncology, sports medicine, food-related diseases.

In addition, I successfully work in other areas, including
consumer electronics, photography, marketing, food & wine. I can translate manuals, Web sites, brochures, marketing collateral, etc. I am also comfortable with creative copy requiring an attractive and engaging style, and can guarantee high quality work delivered on deadline.

I have a
Degree in Modern Languages from the University of Turin, specialising in translation. In addition, I am always looking for opportunities to build on my existing knowledge and skills. I regularly attend specialised courses, seminars and conferences about my profession or specific subjects, organised by reputable institutes or trade associations. I am a proud member of the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters (AITI) and of ITI Medical and Pharmaceutical Network.
