Events and training

I hold a BA
and an MA in Modern Languages and Literatures, both from the University
of Torino (Italy). I then moved to the UK, where I obtained a PhD in Italian
studies focused on Translation Studies and Gender Studies. In my thesis I
adopted a methodology based on Descriptive Translation Studies to analyse the
influence played by translation on the spread of American feminist ideas in
Italy. You can find part of my research in the edited volume Feminist
Translation Studies: Local and Transnational Perspectives, published by
Routledge in 2017 and edited by Olga Castro and Emek Ergun.

My PhD gave me the
opportunity to get an extensive knowledge of translation theory, which is
essential in my work as a translator. My experience in the field of translation
is not just theoretical as I have also been collaborating with several
translation agencies and companies. My strengths are an excellent theoretical
background, good work experience and the knowledge of foreign
cultures. My areas
of expertise are: academic texts, certificates, travel brochures and guides, websites.
