Background


I am mother-tongue English, and have almost 25 years' experience translating from Italian to English.

I lived in Italy for around two decades, and make frequent trips there to keep up-to-date.

Quick turn-round. Accurate.

Although my speciality fields are scientific/technical, medical, I am happy to translate literary and general material.

Reader for Pan Macmillan Publisher.

I adhere to the code of ethics of the Translators Association (UK).
