Professional practices Marco Corradi endorses's Professional Guidelines.

During my studies of Italian Language as
well as Literature and Research in Language Teaching with a main emphasis
on translation at Hamburg University I was also able to nearly simultaneously
work as a freelancer at the Italian Cultural Committee in Hamburg, where I have
translated the business correspondence into German, and then my function
increasingly expanded thereafter.

Since the responsibilities of the
Italian Cultural Committee are very diverse, I was able to acquire appropriate
specialist knowledge on translating guidebooks, newspaper articles, short
stories and historical/art-historical essays. The Italian Cultural Committee on
the one hand is designed to promote the intercultural exchange between Germans
and Italians living in Germany and on the other hand to assist Italian
emigrants with their social and cultural integration. Apart from preparing the
information events taking place regularly, I was also responsible for the
bookkeeping. I had to prepare tax returns and balance sheets for both German
and Italian authorities. Moreover, I had to act as a simultaneous interpreter
at conferences and meetings.

During my semester abroad, at the University of Genoa I also learnt to prove myself in a variety of communicative contexts. In the process, I learnt by experience that, as in my case, in addition to a sound language training, above all intercultural knowledge is the prerequisite to a translation that reflects the original both linguistically and stylistically.

In the marketing sector, I translated
all kinds of texts for both of my language pairs ITA>GER and ENG>GER
(corporate brochures for publicity agencies, consultancies, authorities and
departments, tourist guides for publishing houses, advertising material for
resorts and informational materials for cruise lines).


I localised the websites for a
well-known Italian telestation and several enterprises which are operating in
the traditional Italian food industry in the language pair ITA>GER. In the
language pair ENG>GER I localised marketing tools for a leading PR agency.

The tourism sector is my main field of expertise in my
language pair ITA>GER. On behalf of an Italian publisher, I translated the
travel guides from Milan, London and New York. In the language pair ENG>GER
I mainly translated travel catalogs and travel brochures in this subject area.

I have chosen the sample translations for my profile
at not only because of the great number of technical terms which can
only be used if one commands the appropriate specialist knowledge, but also
because of their stylistic subtleties that play an important part in the
translation of specialist texts and require an appropriate routine.
