My Background

Personal Profile

Growing up bilingual, speaking French and Italian, I was able to develop a flare for languages. I learned English thanks to the World Wide Web and German, as well as Swiss German, when I got my first job in Bern right after my vocational training ended. 

I have been active in the insurance sector for ten years and have developed a vast vocabulary of the sector in multiple languages.  

My degree introduced me to all aspects of the language industry and pushed me to practice translating and subtitling, as well as how to use different kinds of CAT-Tools.
