About me
My name is Luca Vaccari and I am the managing director of Viking, with main office in Modena, Northern Italy. You may have heard of my town when talking about cars (the Maserati factory is just around the corner to our office, you can reach the Ferrari plant in Maranello in a short while), fine food, vinegar and Pavarotti.

After a university degree in Scandinavian languages and two years in Stockholm working as a switchboard operator and with an import/export company, I have been a full-time translator since 1990. Translator's certificate from Kommerskollegium can be shown upon request.

Swedish is not a "big" language for Italian customers, so I've been acquiring knowledges and communication skills in several fields, from the most technical documentation to a hotel homepage, an instruction booklet for a washing machine or divorce papers.

I started my career as translator far before Internet existed, so once I had to go to the public library to achieve terminology about damages that carrots can suffer of whereas they are packed in plastic bags in shops. Or call a friend in Sweden and confirm my language choices on the phone, before delivering knitting instructions for an Italian fashion company.

Following an increasing number of assignments, the company expanded in the mid-90's, so I involved other highly-motivated professionals to join the business. So here I am with a translator group specialized in translations from/into the Nordic languages. Thanks to our different backgrounds, we can provide you with the quality you deserve in a huge amount of fields. Proof, edit and copy/localization included in price. We are not an agency and do not outsource any jobs.

At present, I share my working time between translating and proofing/editing.


Professionisti con oltre 20 anni di esperienza al vostro servizio per traduzioni in svedese, danese, finlandese e norvegese e, naturalmente, traduzioni in italiano.
Manuali uso e manutenzione, statuti, certificati di iscrizione, pratiche di divorzio, atti di citazione, riviste aziendali, sondaggi o materiale pubblicitario.
Il servizio è completo di revisione interna.
La presenza diretta in Svezia e Danimarca ci permette di fornire servizi integrati alla traduzione e consulenza marketing.

Vänd dig gärna till oss för en icke-bindande offert. Våra översättare i Lund kan personligen hjälpa dig eller ditt företag att få fram ditt budskap på italienska, men även danska, norska och finska. Så klart översätter vi till svenska också!

Vi står altid til rådighed – uanset om din dokumentation skal oversættes til italiensk eller dansk. Personlig service gennem vores oversætter/tolk i Århus.

Vi har ikke et fysisk kontor i Norge, men vår norske oversetter, som ofte reiser til sin hjemby, Stavanger, har har vært bosatt i Italia i mange år og har derfor veldig en god kjennskap til kulturen og landet i tillegg til språket naturligvis. Vi kan dermed gi deg og din bedrift den service du forventer deg ved oversettelser eller tolkeoppgaver til eller fra norsk, og til en konkurransedyktig pris.

Pyydä meiltä tarjous! Meillä ei ole toimistoa Suomessa, mutta Italian toimipisteessämme työskentelevällä suomalaisella kääntäjällämme on vuosien kokemus Italian kielestä, kulttuurista ja paikallisesta mentaliteetista. Kotikaupungissaan Tampereella hän käy mahdollisimman usein. Käännämme italiankielisen tekstisi suomeksi ja päinvastoin kilpailukykyiseen hintaan ja laadusta tinkimättä.
