Lori Hetherington - Translator

Firenze, FI, Italia

Twenty-five years of experience, collaborating with a range of clients to create high quality texts for publication.

Overview

I'm an Italian>English translator, proofreader and linguistic consultant. I moved to Italy from the United States thirty years ago and have never left! Currently, most of my work is with entrepreneurial authors to ready their manuscripts either for consideration by English-language publishers or agents or for self-publication, although I also have some experience with publishers. In addition, I've spent more that two decades translating and revising scientific/technical texts and articles for academics.
I particularly like working in situations where there is a sense of team work and look specifically for projects that I can feel passionate about. My favorite projects involve the kinds of books I love to read: women's fiction, historical and literary fiction, with some romance, mystery and thrillers thrown in. If you've already had your book translated, I'm also available for proofreading or quality assessment.
Please contact me for additional examples of my work as I have many that do not currently appear on sales platforms.
