Working as a freelance translator for the last twenty years, I have gained extensive knowledge in various fields, specialising in technical documentation for aerospace and defence industries, logistics, shipping and nautical topics, energy & environment related documents, railway engineering,  legal and business texts.

Having grown up in a bilingual family and focused my studies on foreign languages, my native command of English and Italian allows me to provide accurate translations in both language combinations. I am confident my knowledge of source and target languages and relevant cultural nuances can represent a significant asset for your projects.

My professional background and experience have always been focused on meeting deadlines and achieving specific goals and targets. I do not accept jobs on topics I am not familiar with and despite being capable of offering a good turnaround in terms of time, I prefer not to undertake an assignment if the volume/deadline ratio does not allow for an excellent translation.

I served as a volunteer in the Moderator programme for KudoZ and for the Italian Forum section from 2010 to 2014 Organizer of the 2011 International Conference in Rome and of the 2014 Conference in Pisa

I am a certified trainer in Aerospace and Defence Simplified Technical English and I have been an associate member of the ASD-STE100 Simplified Technical English Maintenance Group since 2014. Together with the STEMG I contributed to the release of Issue 7 of the ASD-STE100 specification (January 2017). We are currently working on the release of Issue 8 which is scheduled for early May 2021.

As a further background on this specialisation, I am proud to mention that I held a presentation on Aerospace and Defence Simplified Technical English at the ELIA Together Conference in Athens in February 2018 and at the ApTrad International Conference for Translators in Portugal in May 2018. I also represented the STEMG as a Speaker at the 2018 S1000D User Forum and ILS Specification Day in New Orleans in September 2018. One of my sessions focused on "ASD-STE100 implementation in S1000D: improving clarity to reduce human factor risk and optimize translation costs".
