Skills

Simultaneous and Consecutive Interpreting

Good concentration, listening and speaking skills acquired throughout the MA Conference Interpreting course. The course provided full training in simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, as well as an advanced module which focuses on working for the EU and the United Nations. I have acquired and consolidated my interpreting skills thanks to the various mock conferences organized and webstreamed at the London Metropolitan University. The topics for the simulated events were related to the fields of "Immigration, "Ageing in today's society", "Violence against women", "Protection of civilians in armed conflict zones" ,"Saving the environment and recycling" "Entrepreneurship as a strategy for employment". Furthermore, I practiced consecutive interpreting and I was evaluated by professionals and assessors by partner universities during six virtual classes.

Translation

My customers are for the most part Italian and foreign translation agencies whereas my direct and indirect customers include large multinational and private companies. I translate various documents that range from manuals to oicial documents, transcripts, e-books and websites. I am also part of dierent Italian voluntary translators teams: "Watching America, TED talks etc". I also provide subtiling and QC services for various agencies.

Conference Management

At the London Metropolitan I was both an event and speaker's manager for mock conferences. I was able to communicate professionally and eectively with my team , establishing and maintaining positive relationships with fellow professionals. Moreover I was able to manage the mock conference from launch to handover. I supported fellow interpreters and conference organizers to facilitate the smooth running of every mock conference. I have experienced and contributed to the eective work of the team, which is essential for the successful booth and interpreting performance. 

Public Speaking

During the course I was trained to write and deliver speeches for the purpose of the interpreting practise and simulated conferences, as well as delivering speeches during presentations that were interpreted. Verbal and non-verbal communication was fully integrated into my practise as public speaker and interpreter
