Oh hi there, I'm Sarah.
I am a creative, a foodie, a traveller, an aspiring prima ballerina (although I may have missed the boat on that one).
I am based in Bologna (via Glasgow, Luxembourg, Edinburgh and Brussels).
I am a copywriter, an editor, a translator: I craft content.
- I devour books
- I speak three languages fluently
- I love, LOVE broccoli
- Coffee or tea? I can’t decide
- I am on a mission to visit every country in Europe (20 and counting…)
- I am firmly team cat
- Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day
What I do:
I am a highly motivated native-English speaking experienced copywriter and translator, with excellent Italian and French. Extensively knowledgeable about copywriting, copy editing, website translation/localisation, and with more than 8 years’ experience in the industry, I am able to create texts in accurate, fluent and catchy English.
My professional interests include fashion and design, editorial, blogs and all things digital. I am currently writing copy for companies in these sectors.
I was most recently a translator at Prometeia and a localisation and content editor at YOOX NET-A-PORTER. I am a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, where I further honed my writing skills with a postgraduate degree in translation.
