I am a native British English translator working from Italian into English in the fields of marcomms, the environment and arts & crafts. After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Italian & Philosophy, I spent nine years working in international media and advertising, a position which allowed me to build up considerable insider knowledge of the industry. Since 2015 I have been working with small businesses to turn their Italian texts into eloquent, thoughtful and eminently readable translations which capture the spirit and essence of the original. I am committed to continuing professional development and am scheduled to sit the IoLET DipTrans in January 2018.
