Overview

I am a published non-fiction author ("Alla scoperta della crittografia quantistica", Bollati Boringhieri 2006 - an introduction to quantum cryptography for the general public) and since 2007 I have been translating maths, science and philosophy books (EN+FR>IT) for Italian publishers (Einaudi, Dedalo, Codice Edizioni, among others) and for science and psychology magazines (Le Scienze and Mind).The complete list of books and articles is on my website.
I love science-related stuff, but I wouldn't call myself a geek, although I have a degree in theoretical physics.
I have worked for many years for science festivals and science exhibitions, both as developer and project manager, managing the Genoa Science Festival lectures programme from 2006 to 2011.

HOW I WORK
I am a freelancer since 2011, and I would never get back to a 9-to-5 job: I like working on my own and getting to choose - and be chosen by - my own clients.
I am passionate and very committed to my job and I consider myself lucky to work with words in different languages on a daily basis.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
I can translate into Italian, fact-check and edit science books and scientific articles aimed at a non-technical audience, focusing on understandability, clarity, and terminology.

I can also assess a translation from Italian into English (which has to be provided by a native English speaker) taking into account many issues non-specialised translators are usually not aware of, such as a correct use of scientific terminology and lexicon, jargon avoidance, compliance with international conventions, etc.

Working for - and with - Mary was a real pleasure. I learned many things translating her book and if she ever writes another one I would be happy to translate it as well!
