skarabeo created by Patrizia Borsa, offers faithful, creative and punctual professional document translation from German, French, English and Spanish into Italian.

I was born in Lugano and I grew up in the Italian part of Switzerland, but my passion for foreign languages and cultures took me to various parts of the world, from Italy to Latin America, from Germany to France, from Greece to the Maldives, from Switzerland to Austria. At the moment I live and work in Neggio (Ticino-Switzerland).

Being able to speak different languages has always fascinated me which is why I decided to make a profession out of my pastime. 

In 1999 I obtained my diploma in translation at the School for Translators and Interpreters of Zurich (DOZ), in Switzerland. I then worked for two well-known translation agencies and specialized in various fields, i. e. insurance, banking, advertising and marketing. 

I translate, proofread and edit different kinds of documents, including technical, advertising, and commercial texts. If need be, I rely on the support of experts in order to assure a high-quality service. 

I have worked as a freelance translator since 2006 and I am a member of the Swiss Association of Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters (ASTTI), the Interpreters' and Translators' Association (DÜV) in Zurich and of the Polo Traduttori Grigioni Italiano (PTGI). 

You will have the advantage of dealing with only one person to whom you can entrust all your confidential company information without going through other intermediaries. 

I offer translation services in the following language combinations:
