Certified Translator & Interpreter

La traduzione è un magico crocevia, una vera potenza espressiva, un ponte tra culture diverse.


Italian is my mother toungue and advertising in all its fine distinctions and scopes is my main area of translation expertise. Ranging from ads to websites, cars to tourism and radio to TV.

You can count on quality work thanks to my strong linguistic sensitivity in addition to a creativity in language adaptation and communicative use of the Italian language.

I back up these qualities with extensive international experience, a Translator's Bachelor degree and several language and specialisation courses in Europe as well as in the USA.

I completed my three-year studies at the School of Translators and Interpreters S.S.I.T. (now SSML Carlo Bo) College for Translators and Interpreters in Milan, where I obtained a diploma as a translator and interpreter for German/English  >> Italian.

As part of my studies, I attended several language and specialisation courses in the USA, England, Irland, Germany und Switzerland. These experiences have greatly influenced and enhanced my intercultural skills.
