Catherine Salbashian

Translator for the Creative Industries in Italy

My name is Catherine Salbashian, and I offer translation and editing services from Italian and French into English. Originally from London, I am now based in sunny Puglia, the "heel" of Italy, after more than a decade spent living and working in Milan.

With around 15 years of experience as a freelance translator, I am also available for editing, proofreading, corporate blogging and copywriting. I generally prefer not to use CAT tools as the kind of work I specialise in requires a more organic, handcrafted approach.

I enjoy the intellectual stimulation of working with creative and academic clients to produce engaging, natural-sounding texts in my native English on a variety of mainly arts-based subjects.

My main fields of specialisation are

fashion and cosmetics

furniture design, art and architecture

film scripts and treatments

museum studies

travel and tourism

market research

luxury sector (haute jewellery, fashion, leather goods, yacht design, champagne etc.)

academic essays on humanities/social science subjects.

I am a new member of Mediterranean Editors and Translators.
