I have a Master of Arts in Linguistics with specialisations in sociolinguistics and Brazilian Portuguese linguistics, a Graduate Certificate in Culture, Language and Social Practice, a Bachelor of Arts in English and Italian and the Diploma in Translation for translation from Italian into English.

I have been translating professionally for fifteen years. I lived in Italy for four years and I spend a few weeks per year in Brazil. I specialise in business, financial and marketing translations, and I also have considerable experience translating legal, tourism and technical documents. I have specialist knowledge of IAS/IFRS terminology. I work in a variety of industry sectors including, but not limited to, banking, telecommunications, energy, utilities, insurance, real estate, transport and information technology.

I also provide proofreading and editing services and hold an editing certification from the University of California, Berkeley.
