English to Italian Translator, Proofreader, Web Writer
I'm a young lady with a BA in Modern Languages and Literatures. I'm a native Italian speaker and have a solid educational background in English and German translation studies.
I currently work as a tutor for middle and high school students who struggle with language learning. In the meantime, I'm also concentrating on the translation of an award-winning Australian children's book that will hopefully help me gain visibility within the publishing industry - becoming a professional translator is written in capital letters on my personal "bucket list" as it has always been my ultimate life goal. The proposal, however, is still pending approval.
I do love writing and blogging, too. Out of passion, in 2010 I suddenly decided to set up a blog aimed to help internauts study the languages I love. I offer language lessons (mainly English and German lessons), exercises, translations, transcripts of audiovisual material and, since recently, also never-ending and passionate reviews of movies and books that happened to catch - and keep - my eye.
Thanks to my "bookworming" and blogging activities, I was given the chance of improving my skills as a writer of Italian. And thanks to my academic path and experience abroad, I acquired the means and linguistic comprehension that are needed to yield a successful translation from English to Italian and vice versa.
In case you are interested in evaluating my work as a translator and/or writer, I have provided you with a link to my website. You'll find it in my portfolio, along with a more complete description of the blog.
Looking forward to working with you!
