Ms. Durante has worked for Empire Group since October 2013 as a proofreader and translator into Italian language. Eugenia was expected to show that she is a trustworthy team member, with knowledge in the field, who can handle up to 3000 words per 24 hours. She did 110% What I appreciate in her the most is that while she is proofreading, she is not only picking up errors, typos, spelling and grammar mistakes, but also she is going an extra mile by checking the translation relevancy. Eugenia is a professional, extremely intelligent person and a responsible professional. The rest of her advantages you’ll discover during your collaboration. She is really great!

Eugenia worked for me at both IQ Magazine and the International Live Music Conference in 2014 and I can honestly say that she has easily been the best employee I have ever had. Her aptitude is outstanding and her ability to learn and understand new tasks is very impressive. Without fail she turns around tasks quickly and efficiently and has even improved the ways in which certain editorial jobs are processed. Her sunny disposition and sense of humour also made her a fantastic colleague to have around the office, which can get quite tense leading up to deadline. However, Eugenia’s approach to work and to generally helping others made her a fantastic asset to the company and she will be sorely missed. Her language skills, in particular, proved incredibly helpful and her ability to interview people over the phone shows maturity beyond her years as a journalist. In short, I could not recommend Eugenia highly enough for any future position

I've asked Eugenia to proofread an essay which was fundamental to me (it will be featured in a book of the 'Popular Music' series from Bloomsbury). I needed someone proficient in translation, communication and music, and I had quite a strict deadline. Eugenia totaly met my expectations. I strongly recommend her, and I'm sure I will contact her again in the future.
We’ve worked with Eugenia on several projects involving user interface translation. Each time she’s been responsive, professional, and easy to work with. Grazie, Eugenia!

It was a pleasure working with Eugenia as a freelance Italian translator. She’s reliable, communicates very clearly, follows directions and also met our production deadlines. Looking forward to working with her again. Thank you!

I highly recommend Eugenia Durante as a candidate for employment. I hired Eugenia as a freelance translator for The Huffington Post last year, where I worked as the Deputy International Editor. Eugenia has always been highly responsive and motivated. Her work was always accurate and delivered right on time. Eugenia is a valuable asset and has my highest recommendation.

“Eugenia is a trustworthy and precise collaborator. She understand her tasks quickly and complete them flawlessly.”
Mariana Eugenia Califano, Editor at Bridgehead Media
I know Eugenia from university and have worked with her on several projects over the past few years. She is one of the most reliable translators I know, always delivering on time or before deadline, inquiring when something isn't 100% clear and delivering top-quality results. Eugenia is my go-to Italian translator for projects within her language pairs and expertise areas. Revising her texts is delightful and her cooperation in my team is essential – so I'll definitely keep working with her and I recommend her to anyone who needs the service she offers.
