I am a certified English to Italian translator on Proz.com.
I am also SDL Trados-certified.

I also translate from Spanish and Portuguese into Italian.

In 2000 I obtained a PhD in Physics from Imperial College, London University, having carried out research into protein crystallography and molecular biology.
After finishing my PhD studies I felt the time had come for a change of direction and, to combine my strong scientific background with my passion for languages, I enrolled in a Master of Science in Scientific, Technical and Medical Translation with Translation Technology (Imperial College, London University), which I completed with Distinction in September 2002 (feel free to browse my article on Science Careers for an insider's view of this MSc).

In April 2003 I took up a post as a full-time Italian translator for SDL International, Sheffield, one of the global leaders in translation and localization services, where I was involved in several localization projects. I left the company in August 2005 in order to pursue my career as a freelance translator.

During this employment, my work included translation and review of software documentation, online help, technical documents, marketing material, videogames and consumer electronics texts. I was also involved in software testing, DTP linguistic check, QA, terminology extraction and glossary compilation. Some of SDL International's clients for whom I undertook projects included Microsoft, SUN Microsystems, Palm, RealNetworks, Sony, Mercury, Hasbro and Symbol Technologies.

I have been a freelance translator since 2005, except for an 11-month period (Sept 2018 - July 2019) when I worked at the UE Translation Centre in Luxembourg. In my freelance work I use the suite SDL Trados Studio 2019 as well as other software packages.
