I think you’ve done a great job with a very tricky piece of writing – I must admit my heart sank when I received the essay for the first time as I thought I would never get a decent translation.  How wrong I was!

Jenny Christensson, art curator


Adriana is an experienced English to Italian translator knowledgeable about all aspects of the subtitling process. She has a friendly attitude and outstanding professional skills. She can deliver quality under time pressure. We hope there’ll be other chances to work with Adriana in the near future.

Adriana has always been very active. Her level of professionalism and flawless translations set her apart from the crowd. She’s what I call a “bulletproof” linguist.

Prof. Jorge Díaz Cintas, University College London


Adriana delivered a very well-received workshop on transcreation, exhibiting and generously sharing her knowledge and obvious expertise on the subject. The attendees of The Translation and Localization 2016 conference praised Adriana’s workshop for its practical character, interactivity and level of professionalism. Adriana is not only a great and engaging presenter, but also a real specialist in transcreation.

I’d like to thank Adriana for a very enjoyable and informative subtitling course on Saturday. I learned a lot about the principles of subtitling and it was great to get some hands-on practice too. The day was well structured and Adriana pitched her teaching perfectly to the needs of the respective students, who all had different degrees of experience.

A quick note to thank you most sincerely for the splendid [transcreation] day you gave us last Friday. Exit polls suggest unanimous praise.

Michael Cunningham, Chartered Institute of Linguists


I’ve had very positive feedback about the transcreation workshop you did for the students last week. Many of them reported having been inspired to think about transcreation as part of their portfolio of services and all of them seemed to enjoy the exercises and discussions. Thank you!
