Balance needs harmony and strength, it connects and creates focus. Both in the practice of translation and in life.

Meet Sara: the soul of Balance Your Words

I’m an Italian translator and interpreter based in Manchester with more than 8 years of experience in my field. I am familiar with all facets of the industry, with my professional background spanning freelancing, in-house Italian translation and project management.

I was raised in a lively Italian family, where we also spoke both French and English, and I developed a passion for languages almost immediately.

Later, I studied foreign languages and translation at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the UK and Italy and travelled to Belgium and Ireland to hone my language skills and develop a deeper understanding of other cultures.

Key qualifications

  • MA Translation
  • MA Foreign Languages for International Communication
  • BA Foreign Languages

While studying languages and translation I also began practicing yoga and became a fitness instructor. I was striving to find a natural equilibrium between my passion for languages and health, and I loved so many things that finding the right balance was very difficult.

However, in 2005 a university friend asked me to work as Italian translator on a small paid project and I accepted, convinced it would be just temporary.

That small project kick-started my passion, gave me a glimpse of the profession and fired up my dreams of working on my own and running my own business.

Since then, I have set up my own business in Manchester, developed my knowledge of languages (I speak English, French, Spanish, Dutch and I am also a qualified TESOL teacher) and translation (I hold a BA and two master’s degrees in languages & translation) and have continued with my work in the fitness industry in my spare time.

Over the course of my career, I have also become an IAPTI and MET member, an active contributor to the ITI Bulletin, a ProZ trainer, a translation trainer & speaker and a prolific blogger.

Now my professional world is a balanced mix of words, projects, business meetings and trusted collaborators.

But after work, I still give myself permission to let things go, practice yoga and find my inspiration.
