    Certified Translator and Interpreter

    Italy - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 8

    I earned a degree in Foreign Languages in Italy, but I thought I needed to improve my education. Therefore, I went to USA where I took a Master's degree in English Language and Literature, living in California for almost three years. As soon as I come back to Italy, I have worked for a long time in private companies, in particular in their export departments, where I had the chance to develop my communication skills in English and Spanish. After this useful and interesting experience, I have finally decided to focus myself in translation and interpreting practice, because I believe those are the activities where I can be more competitive. The main works I have done so far are legal and technical translations, but I am always willing to test myself in other fields like proofreading.
