 Peculiarità

I have a strong academic and journalistic background, graduating with a distinction from my Masters' Degree, so am confident with academic language, and media English, and have extensive knowledge of political, historical and economic issues.

I developed specialisations in specific fields thanks to my work with a number of clients - As a film programmer and journalist, I have extensive knowledge of cinematic vocabulary. As a product specialist for McLaren, I am familiar with automotive. Through my work for the Ministry of the Environment, I have specialised in issues around energy and climate change.

As I have studied and trained in classical theatre, I am also confident in literary translation specifically for drama and theatre and have some experience in that field.
