Teacher, Technical translator and proofreader

My working languages: EN, SP> ITA.

Years of experience: 6.

After qualifying as an English teacher, at the last National Contest for school teachers, sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Education, I've worked for seven years for state schools, mainly secondary level institutions, as a substitute teacher. But I've always had something for translation. Which is why I'm getting a degree in Translation, to be held in December, from the Advanced School for Interpreters and Translators of Trieste.I usually compile a specialized corpus to improve my translations. After this it is very interesting to investigate the corpus with a Corpus analysis tool, such as Wordsmith.
This technique can be of great help in confirming intuitive decisions, in verifying or rejecting decisions based on other tools such as dictionaries, in obtaining information about collocates (words that typically co-occur), in reinforcing knowledge of normal target language patterns, and in learning how to use new expressions.
