I specialise in literary, philosophical, historical, cultural, popular science and reportage-style texts. I have translated several books, some already published, others yet to be, as well as a number essays that are either stand-alone or part of a book. In addition, I am the sole translator for a bi-lingual annual cultural magazine about Sicily. I have a Master’s in Translation, achieved with Distinction from the University of Bristol, a degree in Journalism from the London College of Communication, and I am a member of the ITI. I am a meticulous and dedicated worker, always going far beyond the call of duty to ensure accurate and excellent writing, and I always meet my deadlines. I am very computer-literate as I use many different software packages every day, both in my working life and personal life. I am also a very quick learner, and so am completely open to any new programmes. I am willing to provide short sample translations free of charge to potential clients. I can accept payment in British Pounds, Euros or US dollars. Contact me for high-quality, accurate, well-written, on-time and reasonably-priced translations!
