italian translation

words you can rely on
lorenzo martinelli italian translator and tutor

This is not just a slogan. It is the underlying principle by which I work.

I want you to be certain that the translation will communicate your message across cultural and language barriers clearly and effectively.

In over 25 years of activity I have worked for a number of important clients, learning to accommodate their needs with the maximum flexibility. In all this time, I have never missed a deadline.

I specialize in:

  • Product documentation and brochures
  • Manuals and press releases
  • Web sites, rich content, localization
  • Certificates

I can work with most electronic formats, including Microsoft Office, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe InDesign, HTML, CMS databases, Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal sites, XML, PDF, resource files, uncompiled help files, and many other formats to provide you with the easiest path to your Italian readers.

Whatever format is your document, I can most likely work on it.

italian tuition

you can learn italian
papaveri in toscana

We all love the Italian climate, art, architecture, and Italian food. You can get a lot more out of your Italian experience if you actually do speak some Italian.

Although most Italians will be more than willing to practise their English skills on you, you'll make a splash if you can say Buongiorno to them, or buy those oranges bursting with freshness from the market stall and book your hotel stay using their language.

Whether you want to learn Italian for pleasure or for work, to make the best of your Italian experience, I can offer you:

  • Fun and sympathetic conversation sessions, where you can practise (and improve) your Italian, at whatever level it is.
  • Tailored, one-to-one or small group tuition and teaching, with a more structured approach, so you can learn Italian from scratch, or improve it.

I will offer you the maximum flexibility, at your place or in my study room, and even using Skype or videoconferencing, if we really must. I can take you from zero to survival Italian in an amazingly short time (from survival to fluent takes a little longer.)

I want you to learn to communicate in Italian, and I will help you to develop the skills you need, and learn how to ask questions, understand and give answers, use the Internet, and discuss the subjects you are interested in.


We can use books, web sites, and many other resources, based on your needs, at your speed, and for your benefit.

Let me know what you need, and what you want to achieve, and I'll help you do it!

the italian language

Dante Alighieri

Italian is a neo-latin, or Romance language, evolved from the language spoken by the Romans. It is currently spoken by at least 85 million people.

Like all living languages, it is constantly changing and, as a linguist, I remain attentive and attuned to these changes to offer you a modern and idiomatic Italian that sounds just "right".

what is translation?

latin translation of Aristotle, commented by Avverroe

Translation is really mediation, getting it right across and transferring knowledge from a language to another, from a frame of mind to another, from a point of view to another, interpreting cultural differences to reach a clear, common understanding.
