I am a qualified Italian translator, with a MA Degree in Translation Studies (Merit) from the University of Portsmouth with a dissertation focusing on the practice of subtitling. I have actively subtitled an episode from Sex and the City into Italian. Previous to the MA I obtained a BA Degree in Interpreting and Translating from the University of Udine (Italy) in the language combinations: English-Italian, German-Italian. During the BA course I have spent a semester studying at the Institute for Interpreters and Translators at the Ruprecht-Karls Universität in Heidelberg, Germany.
I have over 15 years of experience, both as independent translator and full-time translation project manager. I worked for over four years as translation project manager at a UK translation company, dealing with complex translation projects in over 100 languages, this included voice-over and subtitling projects. Prior to that, I worked as in-house translator/translation manager for a company dealing with international payroll, Cloudpay, for over 3 years. I translated their payroll software, website, marketing collaterals, and I also acted as technical writer (manuals, user guides, newsletters, knowledge database). And prior to Cloudpay, I worked as trilingual customer service advisor at Intel headquarters. Working in IT environments for six years (hardware at Intel / software at Cloudpay) has allowed me to familiarise with the terminology used in the field.
I specialise in the fields: IT (software & hardware), marketing, subtitling, videogames, payroll & HR, media, technical writing.
Examples of clients include: Amazon, Vodafone, ADP, Symantec, Tiffany & Co., Yamaha, ZTE etc.
I have been living in the UK since 2004, I am therefore very familiar with the British culture and the nuances of the English language. I also spend a lot of time in Italy, this allows me to keep up to date with the natural evolution of the language.
