Struggling to find the right words? Then you’ve come to the right place:

I’m Elena Ferrara and I offer fuss-free interpreting and translation services. I work with individuals and companies worldwide, as they strive to get their message across clearly or to ensure that their clients can enjoy a slick event, where language is not a barrier.

Approved by the Italian Consulates in London and Dublin, I provide certified translations of official documents by using a streamlined process that helps you to navigate those choppy bureaucratic waters with ease. With the same client-focused approach, I undertake a wide variety of interpreting assignments – specialising in European Works Councils and medical, legal and pharmaceutical sectors – with unfaltering enthusiasm and professionalism.

After many years of living in the UK, where I gained an MA in Interpreting with distinction, I have acquired an excellent grasp of both the language and the culture of my adopted country, while still keeping my finger firmly on the pulse of events in my native Italy. Allow me to provide you with translations and interpreting of the highest quality, so that the only thing that will leave you speechless will be my impeccable service.

Remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI)

Technology is a great help when budgets are squeezed and productivity needs to be maximised. Feel the miles between us disappear while I relay your words seamlessly and accurately, in my characteristic professional and friendly manner.

Certified translations

Whatever the occasion, I can assist you by providing a fast and reliable service so you can tick one item off your to-do list without delay. For years I have been translating documents that are regularly requested by the Consulate and other official bodies (e.g. the Home Office), such as birth certificates, wills and marriage certificates. After noticing a consistent desire for clarity, I perfected a system to make these bureaucratic processes as hassle-free as possible for my clients. With empathy and professionalism, I’ll answer your questions promptly and always provide first-rate customer service.

Translation

With an ear trained to capture nuances in Italian, English and Spanish, I delve deep into your legal, pharmaceutical and business documents, and present you with a clear translation the grammatical accuracy of which is faultless. Ambiguity and convoluted language have no place in my work: communication should be effortless.

Elena has worked for us on remote simultaneous interpreting projects for the pharmaceutical industry. We found her to be a reliable interpreter, with a professional attitude and an efficient approach towards her work. We are also impressed with Elena’s linguistic abilities and we look forward to working with her again.

Martina Giannarelli, Language Connect

Elena has completed several translation projects (both marketing and legal) for our company. She made herself known as thorough, committed and always on time. With her proactive approach, she has assured the quality closely followed our needs. She is not only being friendly, but understands translation services are much more than that. Thank you for all your help!

Agata Zaleska, TransPerfect

Ho avuto il piacere di lavorare con Elena in numerose occasioni, sia per progetti di traduzione che durante conferenze. Elena si è sempre dimostrata una collega altamente qualificata, professionale e affidabile, non solo in cabina. Le sue conoscenze linguistiche, il suo spirito di collaborazione e la sua passione per la professione sono sempre garanzia di alti standard professionali e di risultati eccellenti. Spero di lavorare di nuovo con lei presto!”

Eleonora Tasinato, colleague

Ciao Elena Senza il tuo preziosissimo aiuto sarebbe stato tutto molto più difficile. Sei stata davvero indispensabile, sicuramente dovessi avere bisogno ancora di te non esiterei a contattarti!

Thank you again for being so efficient and professional.

Incredibly fast, professional and dynamic. A pleasure to work with, especially when under pressure and in need of a quick response. Very competitive prices too. Highly recommended

Consulate client

Grazie mille. È stato un piacere lavorare con lei. Apprezzo molto la sua professionalità.

Consulate client

Ho contattato Elena per la traduzione certificata di un atto di matrimonio. Elena non si è limitata al semplice compito di traduzione, ma mi ha aiutato a capire anche la corretta procedura da seguire (nel mio caso la validità del documento da inviare al Consolato) in base alla sua lunga esperienza professionale. Ma la cosa che merita di sicuro il mio riconoscimento è la velocità con cui l’intero processo si è svolto: pagamento effettuato alle ore 12:08, traduzione completata alle ore 16:07 dello stesso giorno. Se in futuro avrò bisogno di un ulteriore servizio di traduzione so  già a chi rivolgermi. 

Consulate client

Elena provided fast and accurate translations of multiple urgent documents.  A pleasure to work with; Elena is highly professional, highly responsive and highly recommended.”

Elena was assigned to perform simultaneous interpretation of my technical presentation during a press conference. The feedback from the audience underlined a high level of comprehension thanks to Elena’s interpretation skills and quality. Her attitude and preparation is very professional and she has a very nice personality on top.

Kotaro Yamamoto, Honda

I had the chance of having Elena as a Language Tutor and Supervisor (Dissertation) during my MA in Conference Interpreting at London Metropolitan University. Besides being a highly qualified interpreter and translator, Elena is also excellent tutor. She is extremely dedicated about her job and supportive with her students. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Annalisa Imperi, MA Interpreting student

I was delighted to welcome Elena to my team. I hired her for an Extraordinary Annual EWC meeting. I decided to give this job to Elena based on her background and very impressive CV. The Italian interpretation was excellent; no technical issues were observed or reported on her side. I could see she is passionate about developing her skills further. She was meticulously well prepared for the assignment. I have no hesitation in recommending Elena as an interpreter as I trust she will be a great asset to any company hiring her. It was a pleasure to have her in the Italian booth.

Veronika Wagneter, Panorama I.L.A.

I’m particularly impressed by Elena’s ability to handle in detailed and professional way the task she’s assigned to. I absolutely recommend her!

Consulate client

I have had the pleasure to work with Elena on an interpreting mission for a Club Med training with our top sellers. Elena is very professional; she has prepared thoroughly the content and was in line with our own jargon. I will definitely work with Elena again.

Elena was always swift to reply and very responsive and accommodating at all times. A pleasure to deal with!
