"The work of translating is an art"


Sandro Botticelli, c. 1485-1488 - The Judgement of Paris

I’m a native Italian speaker and a professional translator with over 25 years’ experience in the field of language services and a marketing and financial background. I started working in Austria since 1985 as an in-house translator for a joint-venture enterprise between Snamprogetti, an international engineering company, and OMV, one of Austria’s largest listed industrial companies.

In 1989 I decided to become a freelancer translating from English and German into Italian (native speaker principle). Occasionally, though, I translate from English and Italian into German too, a language I'm fluent in, depending on the area and the purpose of the translation.
