Professional practices simon tanner endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
My main areas of expertise are law, history (both ancient and modern), and food & drink. Being married to a lawyer I also have immediate access to specialist legal knowledge.
Apart from being a translator, I also teach English Language, Linguistics and Translation (Faculty of Letters), and Legal English (Faculty of Law) at the University of Messina.
I am a full member (MITI) of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting.
I use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Acrobat and SDL Trados
