I am a full-time, 9 years-experienced freelance translator, editor and linguistic consultant based in Monza, Italy.
I translate and revise documents from English and French to Italian.
And I am pretty good at it.
I am focused, passionate, accurate, reasonably smart and cultured enough to think out of any box.
I know my mother language and my specialty areas deeply enough to shape them exactly for your needs and targets.
I am honest enough to accept only projects for which I can guarantee the best quality for.
... and I love this job enough not to mind spending weekends or nights helping you meeting the deadliest deadlines.
I currently work mostly with SDL Trados 2017, MemoQ 8.5 and Memsource 6 but no problem if you prefer me to use your own cloud-based or web-based CAT platform - I am a quick learner.
I translate, revise and edit texts and documents mostly in the following areas, which are the fields I have the best & long-time experience in (as that small selection of happy end clients down there can confirm).
I am always open and willing to explore new segments as long as my expertise can fit in. Try me.

I was born in 1984 in Monza, a lovely town near Milano, Italy. After getting a Diploma in Foreign Languages in 2003, I graduated in 2006 in Inter-Cultural Communications (BA) and in 2009 in Communications and Publishing (MA), with a research thesis concerning Jacques Rivette's film Out 1: Noli me tangere from 1971 (still my favourite film to this day). That project involved quite a lot of translating efforts... and something "clicked" for me with that. I started working as freelance translator basically just right after my graduation, things started to go well surprisingly soon, and here I am today. I never thought for a single second about changing my job or looking for something else.
I am an avidly voracious music fan, loving tens of thousands of records and musicians, from Art Blakey to Portishead. You know the "I will make you a compilation tape" kind of guy anyone in the 1990's knew at least an example of? That was me. And just as much as that, I am also an avid reader. My office/living room is filled with books, you can find anything from Dante Alighieri to Mickey Spillane.
Finally I also like tennis, horology, cinema, cooking and classic tattooing.
I share all this fun with two smart, beautiful, blonde-haired and green-eyed female creatures - a four-pawed one and a two-legged one.
