Whether it’s Italian or English, you can express yourself in the language in which you are most at ease. I’ll take care of making communication happen: I interpret the meaning of your message, translating it from English to Italian or from Italian to English accurately, fully, and effectively, with respect for how you communicate.

  • You need to organize a literary or film festival, conference, or symposium, and you want to attract a good number of participants, who can all benefit from the event on an equal level without wasting any time.
  • Your goal is to form international cooperation relationships, but you don’t know the language of your potential foreign partners.
  • You want to take part in a food and wine fair to meet customers and suppliers and it is your only chance to make a good first impression.
  • You want to give visitors a tour of your winery, but you are afraid of not being able to express yourself how you’d like.
  • You have to discuss sensitive matters or mediate during restorative justice meetings, and you need an interpreter who is sensitive and discreet keeping cultural aspects in mind. 
  • You’re organizing a business lunch or dinner with your foreign partners and want everything to be smooth sailing.
  • You and your sweetheart dream of having your wedding in our belpaese but one of you is not an Italian citizen. You want to forget about “language” problems and experience the moment with the peace of mind it deserves.

Depending on the type of event, we will choose the best type of interpreting for you:

Simultaneous interpreting from English to Italian and Italian to English

Perfect for events with a large audience like conferences, seminars, and congresses. I sit in a soundproof booth with a headset and microphone with a view of the room (even if on a screen). I hear in the headset what the speaker is saying, and I translate it in real time with a minimal time lapse. The audience listens to the translation in Italian or English through earpieces or headsets. For events over an hour long, I work in pairs with another colleague, with whom I alternate about every 30 minutes to ensure optimal translation. 

I can use simultaneous interpreting for online events – like webinars and meetings – using specific platforms equipped with interpreting functions

Consecutive interpreting from English to Italian and Italian to English

The best choice for short events like press conferences and presentations with a single speaker – who speaks English, for instance – addressing an Italian audience. In these cases, I do not translate in a soundproof booth but sit or stand next to the speaker with a notepad and pen.

While the speaker speaks for 5–10 consecutive minutes in their language, I take notes. As soon as they are done speaking, I recreate the speech in another language. This is why we say that consecutive interpreting happens in two times. If someone from the audience would like to speak, I translate in real time for the foreign speaker, whispering in his or her ear (whispered interpreting or chuchotage).

Whispered interpreting (chuchotage) from English to Italian and Italian to English

Perfect for short events when everyone will use the same language and only one or up to three people need translation. I stand or sit next to those who will listen to the translation and translate in real time whispering in their ears. 

Liaison interpreting from English to Italian and Italian to English

This is perfect for trade fairs, company visits, B2B meetings, bilateral meetings between a limited number of people (usually two) in whichthe communication exchanges are at the pace of conversation.

There are no standard prices for an interpreting service because so many variables come into play (How many languages are involved? How many interpreters are needed? How many days does the event last? What is the subject? Is it an urgent project? Does the interpreter need to travel outside the region or fly abroad? And the list goes on). Every project is unique.

To give you an idea of how much you might spend to include in your budget under the “interpreter” item:

  • One hour of interpreting starts at €115
  • One day of simultaneous or consecutive interpreting starts at €500
  • One day of liaison interpreting starts at €420

It should go without saying that you will make a difference! By working with me – a professional in intercultural communication – you will enhance the impression you make on others, including your audience, your customers, and international partners who will see that you are someone who leaves nothing to chance, pays attention to details, and aspires to optimal quality

You will have no added agency costs because you will have direct contact with me and will know right away that I will devote myself to your project heart and soul.


Contact me using the form below. I will get back to you with a questionnaire that helps me collect the information I need to prepare an exact quote that is clear and complete. At this point, you should already know the exact date that the event will take place, the languages involved, the topic discussed (try to be as specific as possible), and how long it lasts

If you have never organized an event with multiple languages and would rather talk to me, book a free consultation. I would be delighted to answer your questions and help you.

Absolutely. As an interpreter, I am bound to professional secrecy. I keep in the strictest confidence all the information I come into contact with before, during, and after the event. I assure utmost professionalism as I abide absolutely by the profession’s code of ethics and the professional code of Assointerpreti, the Italian interpreters association. I am also pleased to sign a non-disclosure agreement for you if you like.

The earlier you can contact me, the better. The preparation time for assignments varies widely: It could be 3 days, a week or 2 months. To ensure you get the best quality service, I must study the event’s topic in depth, prepare one or more glossaries in Italian and English and memorize them, study the bios of the speakers, the schedule of their speeches, and any other material you provide (such as slides, presentations, programs, etc.), watch speaker videos – if available – to familiarize myself with their speaking style, accent, and speed of speech, practice the type of interpreting chosen by choosing videos on the topic. 

Payment is made by bank transfer as follows. When you accept the quote, you make an advance payment of 30% of the total amount. After the event is completed, I will issue an invoice that is due within 30 days for the remaining 70%. 

No, I’m sorry. There are no discounts on the base rate (except for social interpreting for NGOs and volunteer associations). But I do have some good news. You can pay in installments to make the expense easier to manage. 

Interpretation is a highly specialized job that requires special training in interpreting techniques and entails a great deal of responsibility. The investment for an interpreting service is not based on the number of people who will use the translation or how long the event lasts (unless it is an hour-long meeting for which I apply my hourly rate). 

There are many reasons that the service’s cost is calculated based on a 7-hour day and is non-divisible;

  • Whether I work 4 or 7 consecutive hours, the time needed to prepare for the event remains the same; 
  • When I start preparing, I focus exclusively on your project and do not study for other interpreting assignments. This means that even if your event is for 4 hours in the afternoon, I will not work on another job in the morning. 

All of this has the single aim of ensuring you get top-quality interpreting

These are the factors behind a quote for interpreting:

  • Days spent studying;
  • The actual hours of interpreting during an event;
  • the time used for travel; 
  • telephone and email communication and briefing before the event. 

Yes, I'll take care of it! I draw on a network of trusted, experienced colleagues. We make an excellent team! 

Of course! I can travel to meet you abroad, provide remote interpreting or support you on your trip from Italy to a foreign country to help you communicate with the local people. 


If you agree that a mistake or wrong choice can undermine your project, make your hard work in vain, and cost you a lot (much more than my interpreting service), don’t opt for a do-it-yourself approach if you can “get by” in Italian or English. Your project deserves so much more!

Get in touch with me and I will carefully assess what you need: I will suggest the solution that is best for your event to achieve your professional objectives tied exclusively to your individual case.

When will I respond?

You can contact me whenever you like, and I will respond from Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM CEST, excluding holidays. 

I always try to answer as quickly as possible, generally within 24 hours. When I am out of the office or on vacation, you will get an automated response.
