Do you want your text to be translated clearly and effectively?
Then I am the right person for you.
In addition to being a translator, I'm also a Public Relations Specialist with journalistic experience. As a result, I will not only translate your text well, but will also write it clearly and impeccably, in the style and language suitable for your target audience.
I was born and grew up in Ticino, Switzerland. In my family we spoke Italian and German. This probably contributed to my decision to study languages. I have now been working for two decades as a professional translator from German and English to Italian and Swiss Italian.
In the course of my studies, I spent four years abroad to improve my language skills. On my return, I worked in import-export and banking, where public relations where among my duties. I obtained the federal certificate as a Public Relations Specialist. This gave me the motivation to embark on a journalism course and pursue a career as a freelance journalist. During those years, I also worked as a freelance translator and graduated in literature and art history. Combining study and work was not easy, but it was worth it. It improved my writing and critical thinking skills. For you, it’s a guarantee that in addition to translating your texts well, I will also write them clearly and impeccably.
Kindness is my core value.
I translate from German, English to Italian and Swiss Italian.
I specialise in the following fields:
- Public Relations
- Corporate Communication
- Corporate Media
- Content Marketing.
