About me
My language pairs are English > Italian, Italian (monolingual), and Italian > English. In the latter case, all translations are proofread by English mother tongue translators before delivery.

I am a graduate of the Rome School for Interpreters and Translators. For a few years I worked as an interpreter for the Italian National Olympic Committee.

After a 1-year experience in a prominent law firm in Rome, I worked for 2 years at John Cabot University.

In 1992 I became a translator/interpreter for the U.S. Government. I am currently working as a paralegal specialist in the legal office (dealing with NATO military organizations and bases) of a prominent Embassy in Rome, Italy. A great portion of my work includes translations and interpreting (English<>Italian). I deal especially with legal and military/defense documents. I am the certified translator for Memorandums of Understanding between Italy and the United States of America, and Technical Agreements for the use of Italian military bases by U.S. Armed Forces. I routinely translate legal correspondence, court sentences and documents, appeals, technical arrangements, laws and regulations, bi-lateral agreements, reports on accidents for the Italian Ministry of Defense (claims section), requests for redress, minutes of meetings with the Italian Defense General Staff. Because some of the matters I deal with are sensitive in nature, I obtained a NATO clearance (NOS).

In 1984 I joined the Italian Red Cross. Since my first year as a volunteer I have been teaching First Aid, Basic Life Support, and worked both on ambulances as an EMT and at the Emergency Room of one of the biggest hospitals in Rome. That is how I have developed a passion for the medical field. Working hands-on with patients enabled me to acquire good knowledge of medical terms and practices. In order to update instructions and guidelines, and to improve the skills of our group members, I translate books on the subject for our internal use.

I am also an instructor with the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, and the Italian Resuscitation Council, and teach classes to English-speaking organizations in Rome.

Rates are for estimation purposes only, and are subject to change upon review of the job. Prices depend on the volume of work to be carried out, the delivery date, and the complexity of the matter.
