Reliable, Punctual, Accurate When translating you need to balance accuracy with creativity to create natural sounding English that transmits the same message as the original, but often with different words. Good editing means that the translation is then ready to be published quicker. Punctuality is also a must in translation in an international market where timing is everything and lateness can make you lose clients. I am a professional mother tongue English (UK) translator currently resident in Italy and with work experience in the non-translation fields of marketing, education and finance in both Italy and France.

What Clients Say "I have had the pleasure to work with Mirella Biagi for the past few months. She is a great resource for our community. She translates our Italian posts into English, and by doing so ensures global reach to our news. Ms Biagi is an accurate and reliable translator: she has shown great commitment to the project, delivered quality work that requires nothing but minor editing, and never missed a deadline. Ms Biagi is professional and independent, and she would be an asset to any organizations." - Annalisa Merelli, Italian Country and Language editor for Global Voices Online My interests include the Scout and Guide associations, psychology, cooking and music (both classical and modern).
