    Italy - Portfolio: 2

    Hi, I'm Irene, I'm Italian and I work as a freelance translator. I was born in Italy, but partially raised in France; I'm bilingual, so I can easily write and speak both languages. Moreover, I have a Bachelor Degree in Modern Languages and Literatures, specializing in translation from English to Italian (I uploaded my thesis in the section 'Portfolio' so that you can check yourself both my translation skills and the revision/proofreading skills of Valentina, the partner I work with). I will translate French to Italian, Italian to French and English to Italian. All the translations will be done personally and delivered without errors; if needed, I can even review Italian/French texts or translations and fix the grammar. My Translations skills may accomodate your translating needs for: apps descriptions, homeworks, songs, dialogues, web sites, commercial, product reviews, price lists, documents, technical language and much more! For large orders, please contact me beforehand.
