Translator and Writer

United States - Last active: 7 days ago

I am a full time college student with a passion for writing, languages, reading and learning. I have a bachelor and master degrees. I am currently back in school learning about the education field, which allows me to be surrounded by language (and I love it!). I have been fortunate enough to live in the United States and Latin America, which has helped me gain excellent command of the English and Spanish language. I understand metaphors, idioms, slang, colloquialism, etc. On my spare time I love to write and read (fiction and lit). My goal for having a profile on this site is to obtain jobs as a translator (English/Spanish) and writer. I'm very excited to be on this site and eager to start working, so contact me for further information...

Conference Interpreter and Translator

Italy - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 2

I am Italian and I live in Padua, in the north-east of Italy. I have a Master’s degree in Conference Interpreting (English, French and Russian as working languages) and a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Interlinguistic Communication. This educational training not only taught me how to deal with stress and pressure, but it also gave me the chance of studying topics linked to several political contents, like human rights, environment, international cooperation and European affairs, but, at the same time, I had also the opportunity of analysing texts like journalistic articles, textbooks, comics and subtitling movies and animated cartoons. I have an open mind and I love working with other people. I believe teamwork is not an obstacle; on the contrary. When people having different cultures are involved and working together, the same issue can be analysed and solved by using different approaches. At the same time I had the possibility of deepening my ability of working as an individual, while respecting deadlines and quality in order to satisfy the client's needs. Thanks to my previous internships and my professional experience, in fact, I have learned how to be independent and well organized and I have acquired excellent communication skills. I also understood the importance of taking initiative and that of flexibility to suggest new solutions and meet the requested objectives. Nonetheless, I am always looking forward to improving my linguistic and communication skills. I like films and all what is about motion-picture industry. My Master thesis was about the analysis of American and Soviet animated cartoons of the period 1945-1965, where I presented a subtitled version of six animated shorts. I also enjoy reading novels, cooking and love to travel and learn more about people’s cultures: I spent about three months in Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Kiev to strengthen my Russian language. I am deeply interested in humanitarian issues, that is why I have been a volunteer of the Italian Red Cross since 2006. I strongly support the importance and benefit of variety, most of all represented by diversity of ideas and contexts: this is one of the reasons why I decided to study to become an interpreter and translator. I am looking for a job which, by taking advantage of my education, could let me be part of a major work project.
