Bio











- About Me -


I am a native Italian speaking translator
specializing in English into Italian translation. For the last 5 years, I have
been helping clients such as Airbnb, Canon,
Apple, TomTom, Carte D’Or
and a number of SMEs to effectively translate
their contents in Italian.

I specialize in making your marketing
collaterals as effective in Italian as they are in English. Whether it’s below-the-line
or above-the-line, from IT to apparel and cosmetics, I craft texts that make
your products and services sound as enticing as they deserve to be. At the same
time, I report any potential cultural issue that may arise because of your
copy, so that you avoid any faux-pas.



Projects worth mentioning:

In 2015, I transcreated all the Italian communication (social media copy,
Facebook ads, TVC, billboards and more) for the launch of the TomTom Bandit
action camera. Throughout the project, I transcreated more than 100 assets.


I have always been an avid traveller. When I started working as a
translator, I made the most of my personal experience and lifelong passion to translate
contents for the travel and hospitality industry that sound as if they were
written in Italian. I mostly work on travel guides, contents for vacation
rental owners and promotional materials for big hotel chains.

Daily output: Between 1,500 and 2,500 words a day, depending
on the kind of text.

CAT Tools: Experienced user of SDL Trados Studio
2011
and, SDL WorldServer and Smartling. Also a basic to intermediate
user of different online tools.

Formats I work with: Microsoft Office Suite files, PDF (translated
version will be sent as Word document – plain text), UTF -8, .CSV, .HTML, .XML
and similar.



 

I hold a
B.A. degree in 'Languages for Interpreting and Translation' from
Libera Università Degli Studi San Pio V (LUSPIO), and have gained
qualifications in photography. I also speak French and have been studying Arabic
for three years.

Marketing
Translation and Transcreation


 

In the last 12 months I have translated more than 300k words and completed 50+
transcreation projects
in this field only.


Photography

Having gained qualifications as a photographer and photographic technician,
I leverage a deep understanding of technical components and procedures used in photographic
equipment to also help clients in the field of camera manufacturing. And as a
previous professional photo editor/enhancer, I am also able to help localizing photo
editing/retouching software without any technical glitches.

 

My passion for and understanding of photography is based on 5 years
of study
 and 2 years of working experience as a
professional photographer and photo enhancer. In 2017, I translated more than 200k words of photography-related
contents.

 

Projects worth mentioning:

In 2017,
I localized product pages and technical manuals for a major camera manufacturer
(name can’t be disclosed as it’s under NDA). The project, which took more than 6 months, involved more than 100k words of translation and
localization.

 

Hospitality
and Travel


 

In 2017, I have translated more than 150k
words
in this field only.

 

Projects worth mentioning:

Starting May
2017, I have been working with one of the best-known hospitality brands in the
world. So far, I have translated more than 80k
words
of website materials, blog posts, UI elements and promotional
contents.
