Bio
Reliable, Punctual, Accurate

When translating you need to balance accuracy with creativity to create natural sounding English that transmits the same message as the original, but often with different words. Good editing means that the translation is then ready to be published quicker. Punctuality is also a must in translation in an international market where timing is everything and lateness can make you lose clients.

I am a professional mother tongue English (UK) translator currently resident in Italy and with work experience in the non-translation fields of marketing, education and finance in both Italy and France.

What Clients Say

"I have had the pleasure to work with Mirella Biagi for the past few months. She is a great resource for our community. She translates our Italian posts into English, and by doing so ensures global reach to our news. Ms Biagi is an accurate and reliable translator: she has shown great commitment to the project, delivered quality work that requires nothing but minor editing, and never missed a deadline. Ms Biagi is professional and independent, and she would be an asset to any organizations."
- Annalisa Merelli, Italian Country and Language editor for Global Voices Online

"I am very pleased to write in support of Ms Mirella Biagi: since she joined my team I have been much impressed by her work. She is reliable and thorough, and it is obvious that she takes the trouble to check or query any doubtful items. We often work to quite a tight schedule, and Mirella always sends work back well in advance of any deadline. My task has been made much less onerous since she joined us, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in need of her skills."
- Gillian Forlivesi Heywood, English Language Coordinator for the International Choral Bulletin
