Bio

I am an Italian native speaker with competency and proficiency in English and Spanish and knowledge of French and Portuguese. 

I have a BA in Linguistic Mediation (Spanish and Portuguese), an MA in Cultural Anthropology (specialized in Latin America) and a Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology with a focus on environmental issues and qualitative fieldwork in the United States. Moreover, I've recently obtained an MA in Audiovisual Translation (subtitling, dubbing, captioning, audio-description, and localization of videogames).

Throughout my studies, I gained experience as a copywriter, a linguistic editor, a subtitler, and an English-to-Italian translator. I worked for the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), the Italian Ecovillage Network (RIVE) and several Italian Film Festivals (Asiatica FF, Flowers of Taiwan, Cinema d'Idea, Rome FF), both as a translator/subtitler and an assistant coordinator.

I also have volunteer collaborative experience as a translator and subtitler for TV series and I have done valuable internships at subtitle agencies, TV companies, and post-production studios.

Altough I have only few years of experience as a full-time translator, I strongly believe that my previous career as a cultural anthropologist has provided me with great research skills and with the right tools to understand and respect the complexity behind cultural diversity, things that have proven to be essential for carrying out quality translation work.

I have strong communication and interpersonal skills, I love doing research and I have a keen personal interest in all things related to popular culture, folklore, music, cinema, and the environment.

These are some of the videos I subtitled for "Italia che Cambia", an Italian website about sustainability:
