It was a pleasure working with Ms. Giulia Bancheri on the translation of the international comic book series, Priya’s Shakti and Priya’s Mirror which was funded by the World Bank. She did a beautiful and poetic translation and understood the delicate and intricate cultural nuances in the languages. Equally important she addressed complex social issues and helped bring attention to the problem of gender based violence through her translations.
Ram Devineni, Founder & President of Rattapallax, Inc.
As general editor of the academic series ALL of our University of Udine Press, I have personally and very closely worked with Giulia Bancheri for some of our most important published translations from English. She is a reliable, conscientious, sensitive and excellent translator, with a fine ear not only to the meaning but also to the rhythm of the texts she translates. Riane Eisler, the author she was recently translating for us, complimented her for the high quality of her work in the author’s acknowledgments of the Italian editions of the texts.
