Who am I?

About

It’s only natural to want to know a little more about the person handling your translation.

Let me introduce myself.

I’m Virna Bazzo and I’ve been in the translation industry for over 19 years.

As a native Italian speaker, qualified translator and marketing specialist, I help small businesses, large businesses, and startups boost their presence in the Italian-speaking market. Using my expertise and creativity as a marketing translator, I communicate your message in the most effective and persuasive way to address and spark interest from potential clients.

I also specialise in corporate communication, beauty, fashion and tourism.

Crafting clear and compelling content in the Italian language is what I do best.
