Translation Experience:
Full-time freelance translator/proofreader since November 2009
Two years' experience as an in-house translator/proofreader: technical brochures/guides, marketing, tourism, business reports, interviews, press releases...

Language skills:
I am trilingual, speaking English, Italian and French with ability to also exploit the Sicilian dialect. I live in England, and confirming the view that language and culture cannot exist without each other, I regularly visit Italy and France, in order to keep in touch with both cultures and I consistently immerse myself in relative media.

Education:
BA French and Italian from the University of Exeter (2006)
MA Translation from the University of Surrey (2007)
