Translation

Professional translations, right first time

Polished, professional translations from Italian and French into English.

Deliver your message to an international audience in style: I will produce a natural-sounding human translation that reflects the style and nuances of the source text. 

You can rest assured that I take your texts as seriously as you do: whether it's a press release or an academic paper, I take time to research your subject matter or brand, to ensure accurate terminology and the right tone of voice.

COPY EDITING

Prepping for publication

Need to correct an English text written by a non-native speaker? Want to get your academic paper published or get that research grant? Have you been asked to write a business presentation in English?

Perhaps you're a native speaker but struggle with putting your ideas into persuasive, polished English: I can help you with that too.

Troubleshooting less-than-perfect text is a challenge I enjoy! With my hawk-eye for typos and grammar mistakes, I'll polish and refine your writing until it flows and is ready for publication.

Transcreation

Give your brand an authentic English voice

Transcreation, or 'creative translation', is the perfect solution for advertising or marketing copy as it allows you to engage with a specific international audience in a way that truly speaks to them and their mindset. 

Based on your brief, I can produce a creative, well-written English adaptation of your digital marketing content or advertising copy that's tailored to the cultural expectations of your ideal customers.

Interpreting 

Helping you connect with Puglia

Planning to tie the knot in Italy ( I can help you find the perfect wedding venue in Puglia!), trullo-hunting or here on business?

 

For liaison interpreting services (small meetings, in person or online) and wedding planning support in the Valle d’Itria and Taranto area, please contact me.
