After my training in NL-EN-IT translation at the University of Amsterdam I spent two years in London, studying contemporary dance at the Laban Centre of Movement and Dance. I then moved to Milan for an in-house position as secretary and translator at the European School of Oncology. Going freelance a few years later, I continued to work with ESO as the managing editor of their monograph series. I’ve copyedited English-language medical journals published in Italy (specialties: oncology, nephrology and nutritional therapy) for many years and now work mostly as a freelance editor of medical English. I also translate from Italian and English into Dutch and from Italian into English, with medicine and tourism as my specialisms. I’m a qualified member of the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters (AITI) and have been part of MET since its first conference in 2005, serving on its governing council from 2006 to 2012 and again from 2016 to 2022.
