• ABOUT ME •
Languages are like a secret code. Master the code, and previously locked-up doors will open up to you.
I Take Care of Your Words.
I grew up in Turin, a beautiful city in Northwestern Italy, and I have always had a passion for foreign languages ever since I was a child. This is why I have continuously studied them, delving into grammar rules, technical jargon, and idiomatic expressions.
I always strive to find the best way to convey concepts and ideas. My innate curiosity and my love for challenges are key factors that help me achieve this goal. I never settle for the most obvious solution, which is rarely the best, and I never slack off in my training to constantly improve my skills.
With my previous experience working in the psychiatric field and writing for my own psychology blog, I have gained valuable copywriting skills and expertise in this sector, making me a specialized translator who knows their business. I pride myself on my attention to detail, my inquisitive nature, and my ability to deliver on time. I am always eager to listen to your needs and fulfill your requests to the best of my ability.

A Few Tips for an Outstanding Collaboration
Why not consider hiring a freelance translator to provide you with top-notch translation services? That's a wise choice! But how can we be sure that...
I work with both direct clients and companies, as well as with the translation agencies that I partner with.
What Are Your Language Pairs?
I translate from English and French into Italian, and from Italian to English. Before starting any project, I always ask to view the source materials – if possible – so I can be sure to deliver the best results.
How Does the Translation Process Work for Private Clients and Agencies?
When working on a translation project for a private client or an agency, the process typically begins with the client sending me their text, or an excerpt, for me to view. I will then provide a quotation for the job, and our cooperation will begin. If you require subtitling, I will take care of your video in every detail. Throughout the project, we will maintain an open dialog, and I will follow your guidelines and preferences. Finally, I will revise the project for any trace of ambiguity and send it back to you in its correct version, as regards terminology, register, style, and formatting. If your text is from Italian to English, I will also collaborate with an English native speaker.
Do You Use Any CAT Tools?
Yes, I use various computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools to ensure internal text coherence and quality control. It's important to note that these tools are not machine translation tools, and your project will always be 100% human translation.
How Much Does a Translation Cost?
Each project receives a personalized quote based on factors such as language pairs, domain, complexity, length, and urgency. These factors help determine the most accurate and fair price for the work required.
Do You Have Any Certifications?
Sure I do!
I hold a degree in specialized translation for my three language pairs (EN<>IT and FR>IT), which was issued by the Higher School for Translators and Interpreters (S.S.I.T., Scuola Superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori, operating in Italy since 1979), and is acknowledged by the European Federation of Education (F.E.D.E.)
Additionally, I hold three language certifications:
CFG French Language Certificate C1 issued by the International Business Management Institute
GECT English Language Certificate C2 issued by the same institute
EF SET English Language Certificate C2 issued by EF Education First.
I also have a healthcare degree as a Mental Health Rehabilitation Professional, which was issued by the University Hospital and School of Medicine in Turin, and an MA in Mindfulness Techniques for Stress Management. These qualifications further enhance my translation skills in the field of healthcare and related topics.
Why Should I Pay More for a Professional Translator?
Have you ever thought that simply speaking a foreign language was enough to provide a correct translation? Even worse, have you ever considered using a machine translation tool to get the job done quickly? Well, it's not that simple.
Mistakes in translation, lack of idiomatic expressions, or inadequate context can severely damage a company's or professional's public image. Each text type has its own set of rules, best practices, and codes, whether it's a website, recipe book, scientific essay, or a user's manual. All of these must be respected to build trust with your readers or potential clients and stand out in the crowded translation market we face today.
While machine translation has made significant progress, it's still light-years away from replacing a human translator who is a real expert in their field of expertise and cultural context. A professional translator can spot when something doesn't fit and ensure accuracy and fluency.
By choosing a professional translator, you can significantly reduce the margin of error and increase your chances of success.
