about_me_circle

My mother tongue is Italian, but I have been learning English, French and Slovak for many years. In addition, I spent long periods of time in the United Kingdom, in French-speaking Switzerland and in Slovakia.

My working tools are my languages, a deep-rooted sensitiveness to the nuances of words, a great attention to the appropriate terminology and a very good knowledge of interpreting techniques and translation tools.

Lending my words and voice to other people is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Since I am very well aware of the importance of the task, I always do my best to deliver top quality services and to do everything I can to obtain excellent results.

My specialisms

Calice di rosso

Wine

I discovered the world of wine some years ago, when I started working in an association that organises wine tourism events. Since then, I started being fascinated by everything that concerns wine tasting and winemaking, so I decided to learn more about wine, not only for my job, but also out of personal interest. In 2014, I attended a wine tasting course organised by ONAV (Italian Organisation of Wine Tasters): I passed the final exam and now I hold a certification of wine taster.

Tourism

Apart from being one of my hobbies, tourism has been my main job for some years, having worked full-time in a wine tourism association. Still today, I often have the opportunity to work on interpreting and translating assignments concerning tourism. One of the most frequent tourism-related assignments I have is translating promotional texts for websites or brochures: a type of translation that, in order to be effective, requires a deep knowledge of the specific style employed in the field of tourism.

Immigration

Immigration

Immigration has become one of my specialisms out of personal interest and thanks to many interpreting assignments I have worked in over the years. To learn more about this topic, I attended several courses about multiculturalism, intercultural learning and immigration law, where I particularly focused on immigration from the social and legal point of view.  In addition, I had the opportunity to address immigration firsthand volunteering as a teacher of Italian language for immigrants.
