More than words. 🔍

Even the tiniest word can make a big difference if put in the right context. For this reason, a fair deal of knowledge about the source and target languages is fundamental to understand the underlying nuances of each message, so as to find the best way to convey them.

Being bilingual allows me to work both with English and Italian materials, while many years of study have made me improve French, Spanish, and German language skills for business.
