About me

I am an Italian native speaker translator, Certified Pro network, nowadays based in Romania, Brasov county, Transilvania. Being an italian native speaker, I only translate in my mother tongue. Thanks to the use of up to date Cat Tools during the translation process, I apply all the past experience and the certified linguistic knowledge to give a sense of freshness to your contents without losing their original significance, making them accurate or finding when possible creative solutions, captivating and interesting, focusing on the details and on the effects of the translation. Localize the contents is a priority to me, working and focusing on keywords.

“Per capire un testo – e a maggior ragione per tradurlo – bisogna fare una ipotesi sul mondo possibile che esso rappresenta.” (Umberto Eco) “I traduttori sono i cavalli da tiro della cultura.” (Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin) "Without Translation, we would be living in provinces bordering on silence" (George Steiner) "A Translator is a reader, an interpreter and a creator all in one" (Bijay Kumar Das)

During my post graduation period, I spent my years away from Italy for familiar and working reasons and I travelled a lot and worked both in England and Germany for many years. After a period spent on the cruise ships as Excursion Manager, I began my career as Hotel Manager in Austria and Germany and at least I moved to Italy again. During my working experiences in the tourist industry I get a lot of expertise in marketing and business, management, safety work legislation and administration. Then, when I moved to Romania and I learned the language I decided to dedicate myself to the translation experience which actually has become nowadays my full time activity.

I've been cooperating with many agencies and end clients from all over Europe and Usa offering translation and revision services from English, German Romanian in Italian in different fields of expertise.

That was when I began exploring other subjects and fields like the medical one, reading, studying and attending several interesting webinars about how to combine the specific terminology and the perfect translation.
