What I Do
Italian To English Translation
Translation is an interpretative act that blends creativity and fidelity. Translation of texts that will be read by an anglophone audience requires not only competence in translating from Italian to English but also the ability to understand the source text so that the author’s intent is not lost on the reader. A great translation should read and feel like an original text to convey the desired meaning across different cultures. For best results, have your texts translated if English is not your first language.
Copyediting and Proofreading
Language editing for non-native English speakers For ESL authors with excellent English skills. Language editing aims to ensure that grammar, register and style are correct and appropriate for the intended purpose and readership, addressing language use at the sentence and paragraph level and correcting non-idiomatic English to deliver flawless, polished texts.
Copyediting ensures that your text is correct in terms of grammar, punctuation, spelling and capitalization, along with addressing awkward syntax and inconsistencies, and removing repetitions.
I will also address formatting issues—ensuring that headers, notes, and reference lists are in line with the required style guide (Chicago, MLA, APA, etc.).
Presentation is as crucial as content. The quality of your writing and the way you present your ideas can make or break your professional reputation. Only powerful, flawless texts can bring you higher prestige and wider dissemination of your work—and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that language will not be a barrier.
