Gilda Dina – Translator

I am a native Italian literary translator from English with experience mostly in Humanities and Social Sciences non-fiction.


I can provide culturally resonant translations given my deep and sensitive approach to the text. I love to challenge myself to always find the best words that fully express the author's voice and perspective.

My education in Intercultural Mediation prepared me to engage with works of translation of Anthropology and Sociology academic essays, as well as in the field of Performing Arts. These have been the most stimulating translations I made so far, but I am looking forward to translating novels to apply my sensitive approach on a more vivid way of writing.
