Dr. Patricia Hampton graduated in Modern Languages at the University of Birmingham (U.K.) specializing in French and German.

She subsequently gained a P.G.C.E. (Post-graduate Ceritificate of Education) in language teaching at the University of London, King’s College.

During this period Dr. Hampton worked in London as a language teacher and as a translator in the field of journalism.

In 1973 she moved to Italy, where she learned Italian “in the field”, subsequently perfecting her knowledge of the language and working as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and translator.

Since 1987 she has been teaching English in the second year of the Degree Course in Foreign Languages and Literature at Milan State University.  She also taught Language Teaching Methodology for the Silsis (University Teacher Training Courses in Lombardy) and has led training seminars for teachers of English on various different occasions.  This area of interest has also led to her to collaborate on the production of English language textbooks.

At present her main field of activity is translation.  She works for University Departments (e.g. Sociology, Philosophy) and Italian and European Associations operating in the field of the cinema.

Since 2005 she has been working with the Founder Members of the Psych-dendron Association on the Italian adaptations of personality assessment tools, from the phase of the back version to discussion of the final version in Italian, involving comparison with the original version, not only from a linguistic but also from a cross-cultural perspective.
