Born and raised in Italy, I learned flawless spoken and written Italian thanks to my wonderful Primary and Middle School teachers.
During High School, Latin studies me realize that my professional future lay in languages. I soon developed a passion for reading English books, watching English films, and checking English websites. In addition, I was able to study a number of scientific subjects (Biology, Chemistry, Science) on which I grounded my passion for Medicine and Biology.

I carried on my Language studies, obtaining a BA at Università degli Studi di Milano where I complemented my practical language skills with solid knowledge of the main Indo-European linguistic structures. I studied Spanish and Swedish, and I further developed my passion for original language literature and culture, in all three languages.

Before going freelance, I worked for three years as an in-house technical translator/proofreader/editor. I translated mainly printers' user manuals and service manuals, display/softkey text, help files, sales guides, and marketing brochures.

After two year's worth of pharmaceutical translations and a Medical translation course, I am now specialized in the medical/pharmaceutical field.

Quality translation needs full understanding of the source language, flawless writing skills, sound knowledge of the subject, good research abilities, and sharp intuition; I constantly work to develop and update these skills, to be able to provide as accurate and flowing translations as possible.
