about me

Catherine Salbashian

I've been helping businesses, academics and creative professionals communicate with an English-speaking audience since I chose translation as a career in 2003. 


As a Londoner, I grew up surrounded by people speaking different languages, and made the most of the capital’s cultural scene; after a degree in French and Italian, I lived in Italy's fashion and design capital Milan for thirteen years, before moving to beautiful Puglia, the heel of Italy.
My experiences have given me a deep understanding of the specific references and subtleties of Italian culture, society and language in various contexts. 

A background in business marketing & communications and a lifelong fascination with fashion, the arts and travel, means I relish the intellectual challenge of translating complex creative and cultural texts.

I hold a First Class Hons B.A. in Modern Languages from the University of Bristol, and the postgraduate professional qualification Diploma in Translation (DipTrans) issued by the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL), of which I am a Member – check my profile here.
