I am an experienced translator, proofreader, editor and subtitler from English into Italian.
After graduating with a BA Honours Degree in languages from Venice University in 1993, I relocated to the UK and obtained the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation.
I have been working as a freelance translator for a number of international subtitling companies and translation agencies since 2002.
I have worked on a great variety of subtitling projects, from major Hollywood films and popular TV series to documentaries and corporate videos.
I also have extensive translation experience in several subjects and have worked on various transcreation projects (creative translation of marketing copy and advertising).
My attention to detail makes me a meticulous proofreader too.
I am also involved in an ongoing subtitling project for the Swiss–Italian television, creating and reviewing subtitled programmes for the hard of hearing.
I am currently based in Ottawa, Canada.
Specialised subjects: art, cinema, education, IT, journalism, literature, marketing, medicine and nutrition, multimedia, psychology, science, sociology, television, theatre, travel and tourism.
CAT tools and subtitling software: SDL Trados 2007 and WinCAPS.
