Hi! I'm Marina

Your Italian translation specialist.

I’m a certified and sworn translator from English into Italian with 10 years of experience and different specializations.

I’ll help you with the translation of your documents into Italian, the revision of Italian texts or the translation and adaptation of your website and online content to suit your Italian audience.

Marina Montalbano - English to Italian certified translator

Over the last decade, I’ve helped direct clients, businesses and LSPs with translations of their general and specialized texts.

My previous experience as an in-house translator and client service executive for two international law firms honed my ability to handle several projects at once and develop close attention to my clients’ needs.

This background has provided me not only with the skill set needed to deliver an excellent translation but also with the aptitude to understand my clients and fully focus on their needs.
