Italian native translator

Italy - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 20 - Portfolio: 1

I'm Italian mother tongue, fluent in English and Mandarin, with good (and continuously improving) knowledge of Spanish. As an Italian native, I can also count on the benefits of a strong background in etymology and linguistics, thanks to my classical studies at high school, where I was specifically introduced to Latin and ancient Greek. I got a degree in languages at the University of Venice, where I learned to translate from English and Chinese to my mother tongue. I spent 2 years working in China for an Italian company where, among other secretarial duties, I was responsible for the translation of company documents from Italian to both English and Chinese, including: business emails, supply contracts, product brochures, quality manual, work procedures and instructions, etc. I also have several experiences teaching English as a second language. I've been working as a freelance since 2012, mainly in the translation field, and recently joined oDesk.
