FEDERICA ZAMPARINI,

FREELANCE

LANGUAGE CONSULTANT.

About me

Federica Zamparini language consultant

My language pairs include Italian, my mother tongue, English, which I started learning as a child, and French, that I first came to know at school.

My curiosity and the will to experience different cultures pushed me to travel, to go on study vacations and to obtain a degree in translation and interpreting. Moreover, I studied German and Spanish at a basic level.

Writing has always been one of my passions, together with foreign languages. That’s how I came across translation. I also work as a language consultant and, from 2013, as an English and French teacher.

Translation

Translation is not an exact science. Beyond knowledge and skills, each translator has their own style and aptitudes.

Morevoer, it is crucial to master the language you’re translating into, this is why a translator should be a native speaker. This does not mean his or her eductaion is poor. Despite learning, it is hard to emulate the nuances of folk wisdom. However, it is sometimes possible to translate into a foreign language,but only after careful examination of the text and of the audience you are addressing to.

My fields of specialization include:

  • Publishing : articles, press releases, literature
  • IT / Technology : reviews, guides, PCs, devices, OS
  • Web : websites, strings for apps and games, source code
  • General : general content (non technical)

Teaching

Like translation, teaching can be considered a vocation. It is crucial for a teacher to have direct contact with his or her students – of any age and kind - if he or she wants to impart knowledge.

I offer language courses for adults and tutoring for students.

More in depth, my courses focus on:

  • Grammar
  • Literature
  • Comprehension
  • Oral skills
  • Linguistic mediation

 

tariffe

Rates

As for translation, rates vary according to texts (eg. topic, difficulty). A standard rate per word is applied to the whole amount of words, to which an extra charge can be added.
