I am very thorough in my work, researching everything with utmost care, checking and double-checking everything as detailed as possible (almost obsessively) so that the end result does not create confusions.

I adapt every translation task to customer’s requests and, also, depending on the specific field, I draw up custom glossaries, which I update regularly.

I use a wide database, both electronic and printed, and also institutional web pages, which represent a major source of field-specific terminology.

Strict compliance with deadlines

I approach each task responsibly, making sure that the set deadlines are met, at the same time keeping confidential the contents of the documents I am entrusted with.
