About me

I have worked as a professional Italian, English and Spanish translator for over 20 years and I have been enrolled on the Register of Technical Consultants and Experts of the Courthouse of Bologna since 2002. I provide individuals and businesses alike with translation, proofreading, sworn translations and translations certified by the ATA (American Translators Association), in the USA and by the ITI (Institute of Translators and Interpreters) in the UK, as well as legalising documents, and providing quality control services (LQA) and language consulting services.

I graduated in Translation from the Scuola Superiore di Lingue Moderne per Interpreti e Traduttori di Forlì at the University of Bologna in 1997 and my dissertation was on Chicano (Mexican-Americans) and frontier literature.

Areas of expertise

During my professional career I have focused on the following areas:

  • BUSINESS
  • MARKETING
  • ADVERTISING
  • IT
  • HR
  • LAW
  • ECONOMICS AND FINANCE
  • SPORT
  • TOURISM
  • 1995

    Before graduating, I worked for almost a year as a sales executive in an editorial distribution company (Logos Impex srl, Modena).

  • 1997

    After graduation, I worked with friends and university colleagues to create a local translation agency, Albatros Soluzioni Linguistiche, srl (Bologna).

    In the first few years of my professional career, my curiosity and desire to learn about and experience different cultures, and to use the skills I had acquired, led me to combine my work as a translator with teaching Italian.

  • 1998

    I accepted an offer from the head of culture at the Italian Embassy in Quito, Ecuador (Mr. Valerio Giovetti) to work as a volunteer Italian teacher at the Universidad Técnica de Ambato, where I spent one academic year.

  • 1999

    Back to Italy, I worked with the Scuola Dozza (now Istituto Comprensivo 1 di Bologna) organising and teaching literacy courses for foreign students in primary and secondary schools.

    At the same time, I worked with Cultura Italiana Bologna, a private language school with headquarters in Bologna, as an Italian teacher, teaching both individual and group classes.

  • 2000

    I accepted a 6-month post from the University of Bologna (January-June 2000) as an associate professor of Italian at the King Saud University (Riad, Saudi Arabia).

  • 2000-2001

    After my experience in Saudi Arabia, I was selected by the American translation agency ilanguage for its production centre in the Dominican Republic. Although I was initially taken on as a translator, I went on to become a coordinator for Italian language services.

    I later moved to the company's new branch in Costa Rica (San José), where I lived and worked until July 2001.

  • 2001

    Teacher on a two-week intensive Italian course for foreign students at the Johns Hopkins University (SAIS).

  • 2001

    Since autumn 2001 I have been working full time as a freelance translator.

  • 2002

    Enrolled on the Register of Technical Consultants and Experts of the Judge at the Court of Bologna for civil and criminal proceedings. This gave me a deeper understanding of the legal field, as well as leading to greater specialisation in other areas, such as business, marketing, advertising, information technology, HR, law, economics and finance and tourism.

  • 2005

    Temporary Spanish teacher at Istituto Comprensivo n. 6 in Bologna (secondary school).

  • 2011

    I passed the EPSO/CAST/S/1/2011 selection process for contract agents for the European Union in the Italian-Language (IT) Translators category.

  • 2019

    Temporary Spanish teacher at the Istituto Comprensivo n. 9 in Bologna (secondary school), participating in secondary school examinations.
