Bio
I have recently completed my degree in Italian and German Studies at the University of Birmingham. I have a passion for both of these languages, and also for English, my native language; I have developed my German and Italian to a high level of fluency, and am confident in my abilities. As part of my degree I followed a translation course, through which I gained extensive knowledge of the history and theories of translation, as well as valuable experience in the practice of translation. My literary translations from Italian to English have included some very challenging extracts from Stefano Benni's 'Il bar sotto il mare', which required an deep knowledge of the linguistics and figurative aspects of Italian. I was also requested to translate a lengthy text written by a member of academic staff at the University of Ferrara (a prominent figure in the Italian archaeology world), for publication in English. For me translation is a pleasurable and enjoyable experience, and I always strive to capture the essence of a source text when translating.

For samples of my translation work, please feel free to contact me.
