English and Italian feel so similar, yet so different?

Communicating between different languages and cultures doesn’t happen by chance. It happens through careful writing. That is when a translator and post-editor – better yet, a highly trained, perfectly organised experienced translator and certified post-editor like me comes into play.

About me

About me

In my work, I strive to translate not only words, but concepts, ideas, and intentions. I carefully polish each sentence to make sure the word choice is perfect, the phrase is catchy, and the message hits home.

Want to know more about me? Check out my LinkedIn profile to see the recommendations of my customers (and follow my #PaintInTranslation interview series) or read my blog (come on, I’ll take you behind the scenes!).

Work with me

Translation is my passion and my only focus: I only do what I do best, so that you always get top-notch results.


I specialise in the following areas:

  • Technical translations Think: manuals, specifications, brochures, press releases, blog posts, presentations, etc.
  • Legal translations You’ll need this for your contracts and agreements, and I also offer a sworn translation service
  • Audiovisual translations For example, you may want to subtitle or dub your corporate videos

Life has taken me to work especially in the surface treatment and coating industry. You can find out more about this through my #PaintInTranslation posts and articles on LinkedIn.
