Some people just have it… and I have always had an in-born passion for languages and writing since my early childhood.
Therefore, I started learning English, German and French at the secondary school for five full years obtaining my diploma of languages with the highest score, 100 out of 100.
Later, I moved from my home city, Catania, to Forlì (University of Bologna) where I studied International Relations and conquered my bachelor and master titles with honours.
Back to pure Linguistics: before leaving Forlì, I completed a course at SSLMIT (School of Modern Languages for Translators) and then left to travel through the “Europe of my languages”.
As a translator, I have been working as both a freelancer and in-house, thus refining my language skills and learning how big international firms operate and what their needs are. I have worked in Leipzig, Bologna and Frankfurt am Main, and have lived in Germany and in England.
Thanks to my broad range of experiences, I have specialised in the following fields:
* Government and Law:
Business and Commerce
Law and Contracts
Websites and e-commerce platforms
Video games (Nintendo video games, MMORPGs, browser games and smartphone apps)
Transcreation (reinterpretation of a text in a creative way) and adaptation for a target market
