Hi, I’m Sabrina.
Nice to e-meet you!
If you need your documents or your voice messages translated from and into Italian, English, Portuguese, or Mandarin Chinese, you’ve come to the right person.
I’m a wandering polyglot, and I work as an interpreter, translator, and consultant.
Since 2016, I’ve been making communication easier for companies and individuals throughout the globe. I’ve been freelancing full-time since 2018.
From technical documents to more creative projects, conferences to corporate meetings, my job is to find the most suitable and convenient option for my clients’ needs. I always aim at bringing more value — that’s what I stand up for.
Professionalism, trust, and confidentiality are paramount for me. I strive for an honest and direct relationship with my clients, keeping their best interests in mind and trying to find high-quality and flexible solutions for them.

Fun facts about me:
- I can never answer the question ‘where are you from’. I’m from Italy but I’ve graduated from a Portuguese high school, and during my uni years I’ve lived and studied both in China and Taiwan.
- I never travel without a book or headphones. If I’m not listening to a podcast or learning something online, chances are I’m probably reading a book.
- I have an inordinate passion for business backpacks and bags, especially if they come with lots of pockets of all sizes – gotta keep everything organized!
- I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes, new cooking methods, and way too many gadgets.
- I love writing, and I am very active on my professional profiles on social media. By the way, an article I wrote was been shared by the European Commission’s Knowledge Centre on Interpretation!
