En ligne Hors ligne
I am passionate about translation! I was born in 1973 in Italy and have been studying and practicing English both in Italy and the UK since the age of 10. I graduated in Oriental Languages at the University of Venice, Italy and English was among the main subjects. Having studied Sanskrit, ancient Greek and Latin, I have a deep knowledge of linguistic structures. I have lived and worked in Bangladesh for a year and in London, UK for over 9 years. I presently live between Italy and Australia, where my partner is from. I am well traveled and entertain relationships with people from all around the world. I have gained experience in writing/translating a variety of texts including official documents (government, court, police), scientific/medical and narrative. I have a very good attention to detail and am always thorough in what I do. I can work to tight deadlines and deliver on time. I have an innate attraction to languages and love coming into contact with other cultures.
