Statement: I have always loved languages. I had my first English lesson at the age of 8, added French at 11 and German at 15. I have lived in Italy, Germany and now the UK. My education is also international: I studied in Italy, France, and the UK. Background in IT - I have worked in the industry for several years while studying translation and my first official gig in translation was a two-year job in the localization department of a cool IT start-up. Moving on to the Law - I specialised in legal translations, launching my career in this field in 2016 when I was awarded my Diploma in Public Service Interpreting. Since then, I interpret in courts, for solicitors, and the police in criminal cases, giving a voice to victims of crime.
