Bio
I work since 1988 in the field of marketing and communications services.
My first job has been as a copywriter in an advertising agency: there I confronted myself with the usual arsenal of a "language workshop": texts, captions, body copies, speechs, articles, headlines, proofreading.
In the latest years, in my international career as a freelance, I have developed an experience in magazines, and became Professional Journalist, belonging to the Order of Torino, Italy.
Between the main clients I worked for I can list: Apple Computer (localization of marcom material, and writing of an international b2b campaign in english, with its following translation in italian), DuPont de Nemours (internal commincations material), Sicis (writing of every pr material from 2004 to 2008), Singapore Design Council (localization of their communication material for the Blueprint exhibit in 2008), Singapore Furniture Industries Council (writing and localization of all their marcom material for their participation in the Salone del Mobile di Milano 2010, where I also provided for them translation services).
I am specialized in localizing advertising and communications material from english and french into italian, and giving it a copywriting flair, making it more easy to understand and more convincing; more, i translate generic italian texts into american english.
