I am an Italian native-speaker freelance translator and I currently live in Italy. I translate from English and French into Italian.
My specialties are:
I graduated in Translation and Interpreting and then obtained cum laude a Master's Degree in Literary and Technical Translation (specialty fields: tourism, subtitling and videogame localization). I also attended a Postgraduate Master Course in Translation of Post-Colonial Texts from English into Italian (Literature, Essays, Drama and Cinema). As part of this course program, I worked in a publishing house, translating articles and proofreading English and Italian texts. Thanks to this experience, I further developed my precision and attention to details. I also attended a course in Translation of Young Adult Fiction from English into Italian.
I am registered as an expert in the English language with the Camera di Commercio di Taranto (Taranto Chamber of Commerce, Italy), number 341.
I translated in team the English subtitles of the film "Dying in Athens"ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â by Nikos Panayotopoulos, showed at the 8th European Film Festival in Lecce (Italia) in 2007.
I think that new technologies are hugely important nowadays, so I learned how to use some helpful software tools, such as the CAT tools Wordfast Pro and OmegaT, the subtitle software Subtitle Workshop and the localisation software LocStudio.
I have excellent searching skills on the Internet, in terminology databases, dictionaries and glossaries. Naturally, I have a 24/7 broadband Internet connection to perform searches.
I am proficient in MS Windows and I can also use Mac OS and GNU/Linux-based OS. I also learned some basic notions of SEO and HTML to help in creating my website.
I attended a French intensive course (FranÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â§ais Langue GÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â©nÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â©rale) at the Alliance FranÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â§aise in Paris (France), then I obtained the DiplÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â´me dÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â°tudes de Langue FranÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â§aise (DELF).
