Professional background
Freelance translator since 1988

Started my career translating articles from Italian into English for Italian-based publishers dealing with the Italian textile machine industry (weaving, spinning, dyeing, bleaching processes, etc).
Have translated a large amount of material in the civil and mechanical engineering area for bilingual (IT/EN) technical magazines published in Milan.
Strong experience in the paper/board converting area, with 5-year collaboration with a Milan-based publisher for whom I translated large volumes on a regular basis. For the same publisher, I also translated material for a bilingual (IT/EN) magazine addressing building/civil engineering issues.
Over the years I have gained experience in some other areas, and specifically: economics, user manuals (pipe bending machines, turning machines, etc.), technical specifications, culinary arts, advertising.
I also have broad experience in the environment/geology area, thanks to ongoing collaboration with an Italian avalanche research center that publishes a magazine addressing snow and avalanche safety issues.
