Hi This is


Professional Freelance Translator

Hi Guys!

Sassytranslations is a fresh and innovative project, born from the dream of a lifetime, and developed with dedication and strength.
I’m Erica Mele, graduated with full marks with a Master’s Degree in Modern Languages and Translation, at Unisalento University. My love for languages, combined with that for reading and writing, that accompany me since I was a child, have been the essential motivation that pushed me and made me approach this world, as beautiful as challenging.
I worked with different kinds of specialized texts: biochemical, psychological, economical, bureaucratic-administrative, archaeological, etc.
While, as for narrative texts, I had the honour of translating two e-books (“Andalusian in Jerusalem” by MoisBenarroch, and “The travels at the turn of the century. Travel to Mallorca” by Mario Garrido Espinosa, both from Spanish to Italian), my first, and certainly not last, experiences in the world of literary translation.
From July 2018 I’m also registered as a Technical Consultant for the judge (sworn translator) of the Lecce Court. My aim is to start from these experiences in order to improve more and more, by offering my knowledge and my services with integrity, dedication and punctuality, and fully respecting the client, along with his/her needs and demands, and by providing the best quality of the service in a short time.
English -> Italian Spanish -> Italian French-> Italian
(For translations from German or Portuguese there will be an extra charge)
