My last position prior to starting up my freelance translation service was as Head of Sales for a small Italian automotive supplier which served a primarily German customer base.

Highlights of my professional profile:
  • Native Italian speaker, currently living in Italy
  • Awarded a Master's Degree in Translation from the University of Bristol (UK) – with Distinction
    • Languages applied in the studies leading the degree: English, Italian, and German.
    • Awarded the Routledge Prize for the best dissertation related to translation studies.
  • Have lived and worked in Germany for extended periods (> 6 years) primarily in the automotive industry (OEM and Tier-1 supplier)
  • Many years of experience in technical translation and interpretation in the language pairs: German <> Italian and English <>Italian
  • Have acquired extensive work experience at OEMs and Tier-1 in Germany and Italy as a translator / interpreter and as an account manager in close contact with high level technical, commercial, and strategic issues (in the following sectors: automotive, metalworking, metal processing, as well as industrial processing)
  • Degree in Political Science (with an emphasis on Sociology) and a Degree in Public Relations from Italian universities (Università degli Studi di Pavia and IULM Istituto Universitario Lingue Moderne-Milano, respectively)
