Bio
Dear visitor,

My name is Sonia Lo Conte and I am a native Italian-speaking translator and proofreader. I am passionate about environment and sustainability in all respects: from climate change to renewable energy, from Cause Related Marketing to Corporate Social Responsibility. Both my University studies with the final dissertation: “Global Development is Sustainable. Social Responsibility and Cooperation between Companies and Society”, and my continuing professional development are my theoretical basis.
This fondness extends to my everyday life. I buy real certified organic food, paying attention to labels and minimising my consumption of packaged products. I prefer refills and concentrated biodegradable cleaning products in a recyclable packaging. I choose organic skin & body care products, cruel free, with a “green” INCI and a sustainable packaging. I reduce my water consumption, and recycle wastes according to the current legislation.
I love printed books, but I often buy ebooks in order to help conserving forests. When I travel, I prefer public transport. My spare time is often devoted to recycled art & crafts projects and production of homemade cosmetics.

Living in a globalised world means cooperate as a whole and this is even more important if we talk about something, which involves each of us, our lives and well-being: the environment and all related issues.
This can only be possible through a fluent and effective communication. I use my language skills in Italian, English and French combined with my experience and passions to ensure accurate translations, spreading your words and thoughts to the target Italian audience.


My main specialties are:

- environment and ecology: translation of articles and websites about environmental issues, renewable energy, biodiversity, pollution, extinction, deforestation, wildlife conservation.
- literature: self-help, fiction and no-fiction books.


I also have translation experience in sectors such as:
- journalism: articles about politics, culture and lifestyle.
- general medicine: maternity care, telomerase.

I also translated and proofread legal documents (contracts, license agreements).
My interests include travel, food and cooking, and I welcome translation and proofreading projects in all these areas.



Additional information
Daily output: I can translate up to 2,500 words a day, depending on the kind of text.
CAT Tools: OmegaT, Wordfastanywhere.
