Make Your Story a Priority.

I certainly will.

Do you dream of publishing your book in Italian?


I transport your message, voice, and meaning into a native story that meets Italian readers at eye-level –  and tugs their heart, mind, and soul strings.

Fast-Paced or Winding?

Always just right!

As a native Italian, a veteran translator and a fellow bibliophile, I’m here to transport your story into my mother tongue, complete with subtleties and innuendos.


Native Italian writer or author of recently translated work:

You need a detail-focused expert to make sure your published work hits all the right notes.

I’ve been traveling all kinds of fantastic worlds, laced in magic, science, and fiction for all ages.

Fact-checking, editing, proofreading:
I help you create a stellar impression with Italian readers and publishers.

Make your story an Italian bestseller.

Testimonials & Client Feedback

Mara is my go-to Italian translator and proofreader for HopeLit, making English literature for all ages available to our Italian readers. With poems, empowering books for young readers, and books that aim to make hard topics graspable, ours are taxing projects with a mission we're proud of. Mara's a joy to work with, over-punctual and her results are impeccable. I highly recommend her for literary translations & proofreading.

Nicole König Head of Translations @ HopeLit

Mara helped my husband and me with some Italian-to-English translations and document searches in 2017. We were so grateful to find someone in Italy who knew the ins and outs of local government and could also get official translations for us. It was easy to communicate with Mara, and we were impressed with her help and attention to detail. Highly recommended!
