Read a few testimonials from my students:

Nadine è una traduttrice professionista molto preparata e il corso è ben strutturato; ottimo per chi vuole avvicinarsi al mondo della traduzione, offre importanti spunti di riflessione (differenze strutturale delle due lingue in questione, registro e tono di voce, inclusività del linguaggio). Sono previste anche alcune brevi esercitazioni pratiche per mettersi alla prova e testare quanto appreso. Lo consiglio!

Thea M.

Sto iniziando a muovere i primi passi nel mondo della traduzione e sento che questo corso mi ha dato moltissimi spunti e basi per affrontarlo al meglio. Nadine affronta davvero tantissimi argomenti in modo molto interessante. Super soddisfatta, lo consiglio a tutti/e coloro che vogliono acquisire professionalità, precisione e dimestichezza.

Sara S.

Il corso di Nadine è strutturato molto bene: le sue spiegazioni sono chiare e veramente utili! Nonostante, come dice lei stessa, alcune cose possano venir date per scontate, è sempre meglio ricordarle per evitare di commettere errori banali.

Read a few testimonials from my happy mentees:

Nadine really helped me understand my career goals and how to reach them. I feel more confident about my skills and I have a real business plan to follow now! She used an amazing PPT presentation (she also sent it to me after the mentoring session) and she gave me useful material and information. Thank you so much!

Ana, Spain (single mentoring session)

I’ve graduated one year ago and tried to find good clients for months, but I only managed to get very well-paid jobs. Nadine tought me some very useful strategies to find better clients and to charge fair rates that respect both me and my job. She also helped me create a new resume and cover letter, improve my LinkedIn profile, and organize my work schedule. I really recommend her mentoring program!

Laurine, France (package of 4 sessions)

The mentoring experience with Nadine was simply great! I’ve been looking for a mentor for ages, but every translator I tried to connect to asked so much money I was going to abandon the idea. Then, I found Nadine on LinkedIn and I reached out to her. She was very kind and immediately found some time to speak with me. She spent even more than one hour (I had so many questions!) but only charged me the regular fee. I’ve learnt a lot with her, and she’s always available to answer questions via email. I couldn’t recommend her more, as a translator and as a human being.
