Bio
I am a native speaker of Italian and also an instructor, editor, proofreader, and translator. As a translator, I work from English, Spanish, and French in Italian which is my native language. While in the last decade I have been translating documents as birth, death, divorce, and marriage certificates, I am especially interested in literary, journalistic, and academic translations.

I held two Masters'degrees in literature (one in Spanish and French from the "Università degli studi di Torino" and another in Italian from the University of Wisconsin-Madison). While in Turin I took some courses in translation theory and in journalism and volunteered for a small Italian newspaper. At the end of my studies in Italy, I wrote a translation from Spanish to Italian of the theatrical play "Historia de una escalera" by Antonio Buero Vallejo.

Later, I earned my second Master's at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I acquired a lot of understanding of academic papers and become a good proofreader and editor of Italian texts. Indeed, the last job had the opportunity to edit is awaiting publication and the client I worked for in this project said about me:

“Manuela, Thank you for the excellent editorial assistance you provided for my Italian essay.
Not only did you correct spelling, grammar and style, but your queries and suggestions contributed greatly to the clarity and readability of the writing; my Italian editor was very pleased with the final product. I would highly recommend your services to anyone needing a good editor”, Michael Sweet, Ph.D. , Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, UW-Madison.
