A British freelance translator with an academic and clinical background in nursing, I specialise in the translation of medical texts from Italian to English.
With over fifteen years' professional translation experience, excellent writing skills and superb research abilities, I focus on providing quality texts with flair and precision, attention to detail and target register, attentive to meeting client needs and deadlines.
I translate all types of medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare documentation, with a special interest in cardiology, radiology, endocrinology and diabetes.
I also have broad experience in translating the arts and the humanities. SERVICES
I offer both translation and editing services. I will also consider post-editing projects if the output is of reasonable quality.
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
I am a member of the association Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) and the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL). I am committed to ongoing professional development through these associations, as well as taking advantage of other educational and training opportunities as these arise.
