Translator (from Italian), Writer and Proofreader

I am a bilingual Classics graduate of the University of Cambridge. I have taught the art of translation for many years and translated, from Italian into English, two hardcover books of over 200pp, as well as countless articles, brochures and websites for various sectors and for local government. Having studied and taught Latin, Greek and English language and literature with excellent results, I am a true grammar expert and most dependable proofreader. I am professionally trained with CIEP (Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, Entry Level Member) and have mastered sophisticated aids such as macros to ensure speed and consistency of service. I have also written articles for magazines and newspapers, which have received many enthusiastic reviews.
