I have 30 years' experience in translating highly technical material from English and Spanish into Italian and Spanish, with full dedication and commitment.

I can offer vast experience, superior quality and extensive working knowledge in the following fields/industries:

- motor vehicles/equipment since 1988: mechanics, electronics, bodywork, courseware for cars, vans, lorries, motorcycles, ATVs, earth-movers, construction vehicles, agricultural and road paving equipment, snow-blowing/ploughing equipment, (marine) engines, motors, generators, pumps, power equipment etc., with anything between 12 and 15 million words translated up to now;

- telecommunications since 1993: products and services for public telephony, digital TV & Internet: fixed, mobile, radio, cable and sat; VPNs; (military) radar consoles and navaids; European prestandards; protocol interfaces; call & contact centers; both consumer and professional devices, equipment and services; approx. 8 million words;

- software, hardware and IT since 1994: including both consumer and professional SW/HW; medical & dental SW/HW; call & contact centers; fire watching/fighting & surveillance systems; business, military & law enforcement thermal imaging systems; software & website localization; and niche SW/HW related to my fields of expertise; approx. 5 million words;

- industrial machine tools and factory automation tools since 1994: lathes, turning centres, etc.; tube forming machines, decoilers, slitters, screening and processing equipment; approx. 5 million words;

- big machinery and industrial plants since 1994: telecommunications, oil, power plants and alternative energy sources, light and heavy industry, turnkey factory solutions, etc.; approx. 5 million words;

- food packaging machines and processes since 1997: mostly liquid fillers and related processes, with approx. 6 million words;

- railways and industrial power equipment since 2006: big disconnectors, circuit-breakers, isolated amplifiers, protection relays, etc., with approx. 2 million words;

- and, last but not least, e-learning & technical marketing material for all the above fields.

In all these years I have never failed a deadline nor delivered an inaccurate or improper piece of work. It ought to go without saying that obviously I should not have been in business for all this time if I did not keep my promises and respect my commitments.
