Ciao,

Come si dice 'Even when she was young she liked to do charity work?'

Grazie :D

    I try this way.
    Benche' fosse giovane, amava fare lavori di beneficenza.
    I think "benché fosse giovane" is the translation of "even though she was young" (which doesn't convey the sense of the original, i.e. that she likes doing charity work now but liked it even back when she was young).

    Maybe "even when" could be translated as "già quando era giovane" (literally "anche/persino quando...").

    Per puro caso ho trovato un altro "even when".
    He goes to bed late "even when" he has to get up early in the morning.
    A questo punto credo significhi "anche se".
    Giusto?
