SPECIALISED AREAS

BIOLOGICAL AND NATURAL SCIENCES

Scientific language can really be challenging, sometimes even risky. There is a lot of technical terminology involved and, as such, it is fundamental that the scientific facts you are presenting are crystal-clear and that your message gets across in an effective way.

ECOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENT

Environmental issues are becoming more and more important in today’s world, as the scientific evidence grows on the challenges our planet is facing. As a consequence of these issues, business decisions are taken, political agendas are updated, consumer awareness increases and so on.

ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Caterina Angela Dettori and I am a professional independent translator and subtitler working from English, Spanish and French into my native Italian.

I combine my translation, linguistic and scientific education and skills to provide tailored, top-quality language services and to help my clients stand out and reach their next goal. If you need not only a translator, but also a specialist that really understands your language and business needs, you have just landed in the right place.

READ MORE

Born and raised in Italy, I am a former scientific researcher with a BSc and an MSc in the Natural Sciences area, a PhD in Environmental and Applied Botany with a thesis in Plant Population Genetics and four years of experience as a post-doctoral researcher. In 2014, I obtained a Professional Certificate in Translation (awarded with Special Merit) and I started to develop my career in translation, which became my full-time job in 2016. In 2018, I obtained the prestigious Diploma in Translation (DipTrans), awarded by the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL).

A travel-addicted lover of nature and languages, I attended a bilingual high school (Italian and Spanish) as a teenager and since then I have had the opportunity to live and work in different countries.  This has allowed me not only to deepen the knowledge of my source languages, but also to become aware of even the slightest cultural nuances.

I currently live in Sardinia (Italy), but I often travel abroad.

Each project is unique, which is why I need to get as much information as possible from you before I can provide a quote.

All my quotes are calculated on a per word, per hour or per minute of video basis, depending on the type of work requested. The rates vary depending on different factors, such as subject matter, amount of research required, length, formatting and, in case of editing/proofreading services, on the quality of the provided document(s). Surcharges will be applied to rush jobs, special or non-editable formats and projects that require working over the weekend or during bank holidays.

Whatever your specific needs, you will get a cost-effective, tailored quote and clear terms and conditions before the start of the project.

Do you need a quote for your project? Just get in touch, I’ll be back to you within 24 hours.

MY COMMITMENTS

1. Punctuality: I never miss a deadline.

2. Maximum confidentiality when dealing with your files.

3. Prompt and friendly communication to ensure that every project runs smoothly.

4. My motto is providing quality. I am here to provide the best Italian linguistic services and to help you stand out. These are the pillars of my working method:

– in order to ensure that even the slightest nuance is captured in my translations, I only translate into my native Italian;

– I don’t use Machine Translation tools (like Google Translator): you will get a human translation that will read naturally and effortlessly, as if it had been written in Italian in the first place;

– I only accept projects in my areas of specialization or in subject areas that I feel comfortable with;

– whenever necessary, I will use Computer-Aided Translation tools such as SDL Trados or professional subtitling software.
