Professional practices Leanne Young endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I live in Italy full time and use Italian and English daily. My children all attend Italian schools and so I have a lot of contact with the language and everyday Italian life. As I have contact with everyday Italian I am skilled at translating colloquial language (such as market research interviews and transcriptions).

I have a degree in Economics (Political Studies) and an expert level of Italian attained through study in Italy (University of Perugia and University of Siena) and in the UK (University of London).

I have over 12 years experience as a translator and over 10 years experience in the market research industry. Before translating I was a senior research executive for agencies in the UK and in Australia.

I have translated texts in the following areas:
marketing and market research (catalogues, press releases, market research studies particularly in the automobile industry, questionnaires, brochures, business presentations); tourism (web sites, airport reports, brochures, presentations);
advertising; education (report into third age education in Italy); fashion (editorial, press releases, product sheets); general business (letters, CV’s); footwear ; food; children's literature; fiction; magazine articles; computer games; general medicine (heart and diabetes products); psychology; legal (contracts), sport and HR (handbooks on project management).

I have a flair for creative writing and enjoy the challenge of translating texts that require a degree of personal interpretation. I like playing with words and descriptive translations.

I also transcribe and translate market research interviews and group discussions.

I am registered for IVA (value added tax) in Italy.
