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.
and her uncommon skills in translation deserved to be highlighted."
