Bespoke communication services. Dropinka®: couturier communications

When you choose to communicate, you do it for a reason.

You communicate because you want to persuade people to do something, or simply improve your brand perception. You communicate to take your products across borders, so you need to make yourself understood by people speaking a different language than your own. Or you communicate to let people know about something, i.e. to inform.

Communications is a fabric made of different textures. Persuasion, translation and information are the three textures of communications I deal with. And through my work, I myself am its common thread.

I’m not an agency, but an independent professional personally offering you a full range of communication services – so you can rely on just one contact. That means you’ll save time and get a service that’s been crafted with love and meticulous attention to detail to fit you like a glove.

Claudia Benetello: copywriter, translator, interpreter, journalist – Italy

I’m a freelance professional based in Milan, offering an array of communication services.

Italian copywriter for origination and transcreation

I prefer to call myself an artisan of communication rather than a freelance copywriter: I write your advertising and marketing copy directly in Italian (origination) or can adapt it from English or German for the Italian market (transcreation). Online, offline and for any industry.

Italian translator and interpreter

I’m a professional translator and interpreter specialized in music. Combining my experience as a journalist and publicist in the music field with my training as a conference interpreter, I offer translations from English and German to Italian, and can help you with Italian-English interpreting services.

Italian journalist

I’m a journalist and member of the Italian Journalists Association. I started out as a music journalist and I’ll be happy to help you with corporate communication and brand journalism projects in other fields as well.

Some samples of my work?

  • I had the chance to experience Claudia’s professionalism, creativity and warmth during a series of webinars on transcreation that she held in collaboration with the Swiss Association of Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters (ASTTI). The lessons were carefully prepared, and she provided a range of specially created materials in advance. They were very interactive and she made sure that the technology was in place so we could connect with each other and share our work. I found the deep dive into Claudia’s past work for big brands particularly interesting. A very worthwhile course, which has already yielded results!

  • Claudia is a very intelligent and effective copywriter, she really is amazing. I have often had to deal with complex advertising copy – thanks to Claudia's intervention, I have had many happy clients. She can understand the deep meaning of a sentence and accurately research it, explain it, twist it and repackage it as an effective solution.

  • Sometimes a few choice words are all it takes to clarify the concept that’s whirling around in your head, though you’re not sure how to say it. With simple yet incisive words, Claudia managed to express what our company felt and what it believed in.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Claudia on an important and delicate project. She was precise, prompt and open, and immediately established an excellent rapport with the artist she was interpreting, which is very important and doesn’t happen every day. We will unquestionably work together again in the future. The fact that she is passionate about music and knows exactly what she’s doing when she’s working between artist and journalist is essential and makes a difference, since a translation error can create problems in terms of communication.

  • I couldn’t have interviewed Roger Waters, the great Roger Waters, without Claudia Benetello. Her translation of the lyrics from the record Is This The Life We Really Want? and then of the interview that Waters gave Jon Pareles of The New York Times was invaluable. The same holds true for the subtitles of my video interview. Claudia is both excellent and meticulous. Plus she’s fast, which doesn’t hurt. Mentioning her in the written interview as well as the one on video, both of which published by Il Fatto Quotidiano, came naturally, the right thing to do. It was a pleasure to work with her and I look forward to next time.

  • Claudia is 100% professional, an expert and a person with whom it’s a pleasure to work – a rare quality. A copywriter and translator like her is a key asset for any company and/or organization that wants to take its business to the next level. But she is also a passionate and capable journalist who is inspired by her contagious love for the music industry, which she experiences and conveys from a completely personal and special viewpoint – as in Face The Music.
