Professional practices Claudia Catena endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I am an Italian mother-tongue translator and conference interpreter based in Rome (Italy), but I have travelled extensively across Italy, Europe, and also Asia for my interpreting assignments.

I have received important and challenging assignments that gave me the possibility to work for high-profile companies, representatives of the Italian and international public and private sector, politicians, VIPs, athletes, scientists, EU representatives and commissioners, and others. 

What I offer:

  • 20 years of experience as a full-time, high-quality, impartial and reliable translator and conference interpreter, focusing on providing accurate services for an effective communication of your message,
  • Expertise in a wide spectrum of fields,
  • Knowledge of areas of expertise and working languages constantly updated, 
  • Flowing texts that are not literal translations and most especially do not sound like translations,
  • Excellent communication skills and professional, low-profile, customer satisfaction-centered approach, thanks to which I have succeeded in building trusting relationships with my customers,
  •  Extensive experience as team leader, and provider of interpreting services to direct customers (up to 6 interpreting teams). E.g. I organised the interpreting teams for high-profile events held during the Italian EU Presidency (2003), G7 Healthcare (2017) and on many other occasions. For a complete list, please get in touch to receive my CV,
  • Good availability to accommodate urgent jobs,
  • Affiliate Member of AITI.

Please, visit my portfolio to discover my translating style. If no text therein is of your interest, do not hesitate to contact me for a translation test (max. 230 words).
