About me

I am a professional translator working from Italian into English, my mother tongue.

I have been working as a freelancer since 2015. During this time, I have developed my specialisms in the food industry, travel and tourism, and marketing.


MA Applied Translation Studies

In 2015 I completed this European Masters in Translation programme at the University of Leeds, graduating with merit.

During this course I achieved distinctions in specialised Italian translation and audio-visual translation.

BA Italian and Linguistics

In 2014 I graduated with 1st class honours from the University of Leeds.

At graduation I was awarded the Lucy Whitmell prize, given to the student who shows the greatest merit in Italian.

Why work with me?

  • English native speaker: I only translate into English, my mother tongue. This guarantees your translation will be so elegant you can't tell it's a translation.
  • Education: Owning a calculator doesn't make you an accountant. In the same way, speaking two languages doesn't make you a translator. My education has allowed me to develop the skills necessary to deliver accurate translations with the correct terminology and an appropriate register.
  • Professionalism: I listen to all your requirements, answer your questions during the project, and I am always punctual.
  • Friendly service: Amy Translates isn't a big anonymous corporation. With me, you'll always get friendly, clear and honest communication.
"Amy Holland acquired an exceptional level of linguistic awareness in Italian
and her uncommon skills in translation deserved to be highlighted."
