About me

About me:

A highly skilled translator with experience spanning almost 30 years.

Mother tongue British English.


Raised part in Italy and part in the United Kingdom, I have spoken both Italian and English since birth and consider myself truly bilingual. Immersed in languages from a young age, I studied French, Italian, Latin and Spanish at school and later French, Italian, Russian and Portuguese at university.

With several years’ experience in the travel & tourism and banking & insurance sectors behind me, I have been providing Italian to English translation and interpreting services for more than twenty-five years.


I have gained extensive experience in a number of fields over the years and provide expertly crafted, meticulously researched, seamless translations from Italian into English in most fields.

Specialist fields:

• Banking, finance and insurance

• Business and commerce

• Law: contracts

• Law: patents, trademarks and copyright

• Medical and pharmaceuticals: clinical trials, medical devices

• Food and nutrition

• Health and beauty

• Non-fiction


I offer liaison, consecutive, whispered and simultaneous interpreting services between English and Italian and have provided the following services on a regular basis since 2000:

• Public Service interpreting for Edinburgh City Council

• Legal interpreting within the Scottish Criminal Justice System including: Sheriff Court, High Court of Justiciary, Justice of the Peace Court, Crown Office, police stations, prisons, tribunals, lawyer’s offices

• Interpreting at events and exhibitions

• Interpreting at Scottish Parliament

Professional Qualifications:

• Diploma in Financial Services - Chartered Institute of Bankers in Scotland

• DPSI (Diploma in Public Service Interpreting) - CIOL (Chartered Institute of Linguists)
