Completely bilingual English/Italian, I have a TEFL certificate and a freelance career of teaching English and translating of over fourteen years.

As a translator I also benefit from experience acquired during fifteen years of office work in London and Milan in a number of business sectors.

I specialise in creative translation, and I also handle semi-technical texts for a few regular clients.

Some of my recent projects in the tourism industry:;;;;;

and in the field of fashion:

I have translated the following books:
"The Feline Comedy" a novel for teens and young adults by M. Ivana Trevisani;
"The Feline Comedy Educational Edition";
"Coop Member Booklet", nonfiction, for Coop Lombardia;
three nonfiction pocketbooks, "Cats", "Horses", and "The Wonders of Nature", for ContextUs Translations and Publishing Services;
"Burn Slowly" a humorous sci-fi novel by Fabio Casto;
"The Scent of a Family", a novel by Alessandra Cortese;
the short novel "Impermanence", by Daniel Frisano;
several catalogs for art exhibitions;
short stories by award-winning author P. Schiavo Campo (
nursery rhymes;
a photographic book on marine biology.
I have also written pitches and translated publishing proposals for independent authors and literary agencies.

Other literary projects I have completed:
the in-team translation (IT>EN) of:
a Fashion Encyclopaedia;
a historical-artistic guidebook on the cathedral of Monreale, in Sicily;
the book "Joseph Beuys: Every Man is an Artist", for ContextUs Translations and Publishing Services;

My translation work is punctual, accurate and creative.

What clients say about me:

I proofread a huge job she worked on for me over the summer. I rarely come across such diligence and rarely witness such carefully considered work. A trusted resource. (Karim Hantout, con'verse)

Our collaboration of many years with Sarah Jane Webb is based on reciprocal respect.
Her reliability, competence, professionalism and speed are instrumental in the fluid and flawless progress of our projects. (...) Her translations' accuracy and her sensitivity to the reference context have ensured that our advertising slogans, created for an Italian audience, have had the same impact on a foreign target.(Target Graphics and Communication)

... we were impressed with Sarah's translation from English into Italian, where she deploys notable creative and editing skills. Also appreciated are her readiness, accuracy, and reliability. (Adeo S.p.A.)

... Sarah has shown excellent organizational and personal skills, readiness and speed, and we are pleased to provide excellent references. (Sage S.r.l.)
