Hi, I’m Beatrice.

And this is Chewbe, my faithful coworker.

With him by my side, I spend my days localizing English and German games, comics, books and creative texts into Italian.

Born, raised and based in Milan, I’ve been fascinated by creativity and languages since forever.

As a small child, I was endlessly playing board games with my brother. As a university student, I was endlessly geeking out over the nuances of translation theories. So when it came to choosing my career path, it was a no-brainer.

I took the things I love and turned them into my profession.

In my spare time, you’ll probably find me devouring:

Being immersed in the world of nerd means I can create a version of your game, book or text that really speaks to your Italian audience.

Let’s geek out together

The Language Compass

“Translation is a journey over a sea from one shore to the other. Sometimes I think of myself as a smuggler: I cross the frontier of language with my booty of words, ideas, images, and metaphors.”
Amara Lakhous

Just like Amara, I’ve made it my mission to help words safely over the border into Italian.

Through The Language Compass, I’ll guide you on your way, making sure your project reaches Italy’s shores perfectly intact and ready to make its mark.

If you’re feeling a bit at sea in the world of translation, I can show you the way.
So come on, let’s go on an adventure.

What makes me stand out from the crowd?

Focus on inclusivity

Representation is important to me,
so I’ll make sure
the Italian version
of your game
or book is inclusive.

The tools
for the job

I use CAT tools in my translations, and can test your games on specific platforms (PS4, Nintendo Switch, Android OS, iOS, PS Vita and Steam).

Always
up to date

I’m all about Continuous Professional Development, constantly polishing my skills and adding to my knowledge so you get the best possible results.

Translations with a smile

Let’s make the process fun. I’m optimistic, dynamic and think the best translations are the result of the best working relationships.
