CV/Resume English (PDF)


I am an English mother tongue translator, currently working in the English department at the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation. I previously worked for one of the Italian branches of STAR Group (, a leading global language service provider. I also worked as the lead translator and reviser for La Stampa in English and was the single in-house translator and editor for the English section of the Vatican Insider website, run by Italian national newspaper La Stampa, a role I held for five years. During that time I combined my work in the newsroom with freelance translation and revision, using SDL Trados 2014 as my main CAT tool. I am able to adapt to any software/workflow system provided by my clients.

I have 5+ years’ experience working with often highly complex journalistic texts on topics ranging from religious affairs, to finance, law, international politics, music and much more. Give me any type of newspaper article in Italian, Spanish or Greek and I can turn it into a beautifully written, accurate and natural-sounding piece in English (visit Vatican Insider for a taster). My translations have been re-tweeted and reprinted by major newspapers such as “The Sunday Times” and I have extensive experience in the various elements of copywriting and editing as well as translating in real time for live blogs, covering major events such as the Italian elections in 2013, the Papal Conclave and Pope Francis’ visit to Turin.

I have also translated numerous legal and technical texts (see CV), including divorce certificates, university diplomas, school reports, manuals for home appliances and industrial machinery, motorsports, medical studies, cosmetics, fashion and beverage catalogues and much more (see samples published on my Proz profile page to get an idea). In addition, I have translated unpublished excerpts of literary works which I would be glad to provide samples of. In July 2016 I attended "Translate in the City", City University London's 5-day Literary Translation Summer School, where I attended practical workshops and lectures on various aspects of literary translation (including fiction, crime fiction and poetry).
