I am a native Italian translator based in Italy (time zone UTC+1)

Investing in translation means investing in communication, the real key to success and efficiency for every organization in our era.

Thanks to my physics degree and science communication studies followed by a specialized web communication and SEO training I can translate technical documents as well as marketing materials and web contents, accurately and paying attention to the smallest (but significant) details.

During my studies I focused on particle revelation instruments and after an internship at VIRGO, the Italian interferometer for gravitational waves detection, I wrote a thesis on the position feedback system for inverted pendulum suspended mirrors and the optical spring phenomenon.
I also have a basic knowledge of astrophysics, quantum mechanics, theory of relativity, strings theory, nuclear physics, solid state physics and surface/interface phenomena.
