Bio

Who I am

I'm an italian mother tongue translator born and based in Italy. 
From a very early age my obsession for international music and cinema helped me turning my love for the english language into a proper skill.

When I graduated high school I got a diploma as operator for the touristic services, then later I got a bachelor degree in foreign languages and modern cultures at the University of Milan. Post-grad I have concentrated on translation attending a number of training courses focused on the editorial and technical fields with workshops that helped me improve my abilities.

In the recent past I translated business correspondence, interviews, treatments for the movie industry, product descriptions for e-commerce and crowdfunding campaigns. 
I never really stopped dealing with foreign languages as I use english as a second language almost on a daily basis for several reasons, but mostly for personal use. 
As a very curious person of many interests who loves learning new things in general, translations are just one additional mean that allows me to do that.
I'm a voluntary subtitler for TEDx which helps me keeping my mind fresh and inspired.

Precision, accuracy and meeting deadlines are things I really care about.
