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.

I'm not one of those people who are being satisfied with the simple things. In life I have learned to respect the deadlines, follow the instructions and use them to get to the best possible result. I do not accept a job solely for financial gain but because I want to improve and perfect my knowledges. From my employer I expect to provide me a totaly freedom, because a perfectionist like me knows very well how to do his job. I like to improve myself everyday, learn unusal and non common things. My biggest passion are languages. I am fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I'm a professor of Italian and Spanish and I have a strong desire to prove myself. I would like to open language school, which will be dominated by Italian and Oriental languages​​, above all Hindi. I have extensive experience in translation and I'm a person that will meet all your expectations in terms of translation. I speak Italian from the age of seven and the majority of Italian speakers do not believe that I was not born in Italy. This is a brief summary of my experiences and expectations, and you should contact me if you are offering a job in the field of Italian language. My primary interest is the Italian language but I'm also interested in jobs like: data entry, administrative support, blog writing, article writing, virtual assistent, web design, autoCAD modelling etc. My expressed qualities are optimistic spirit, communication skills, accuracy and extraordinary verbal skills.
