I have been working for more than seventeen years (Since February 1990) as a freelancer, translating more than 5.000.000 words (on the average: 5 pages a day) in the above mentioned fields of expertise. My career in the translation business began in the early 1990's, when the Internet wasn't yet as widespread as it is today. Back then, I used to translate technical and scientific journal papers for fellow students and local agencies alike. Over the years, I have developed a very strong committment to the profession and have been continuously fine tuning my natural skills as a technical writer, both in English and Italian, in the scientific and technical fields of expertise mentioned above. I have written some entry level technical papers published on the Pluto Journal by the Linux User Group Pluto; those papers are introductory articles on the Java Programming Language: Introduction to Java and Java Philosophy. You can find another article about Java, really devoted to the layman, in this Principles of Java for the man of the street featured paper.
Currentlly, I am translating, on a regular basis, from French into Italian, for the scientific and technical magazines Explora and Scoprire, devoted, respectively, to an adult lay readership and to graders. I am working, as well, as an ICT translator, from English into Italian, for the magazine Quale Computer and write technical papers about the Linux Operating System for the Linux Magazine; both magazines are published by Edizioni Master.
I have translated, on behalf of the Italian ICT publisher Duke Italia, from April 2004 through February 2005, about 80 professional papers on the Linux Operating System, published on the Italian edition of the world renowned Linux Journal.
Moreover, I have been working for two years (1996-1997) as a freelance publishing consultant and scout for the world renowned publishers: Gordon & Breach, Inc., USA;
Routledge, Inc., USA; Routledge, Ltd. , UK.

I have worked, for three months (1998, July, August and September), for Barnes & Noble, in New York city, and attended, during this same period, two qualified workshops on technical editing and copywriting.

I have worked, on behalf of the world renowned pharmaceutical giant BAYER, in translating advertisement and users information documents relating to pharmaceutical products and health services.
CURRENTLY ALSO IN TRANSLATION I am working, through an agency (Translators Pro) located in Dallas, Texas, on behalf of the consumer electronics manufacturer LEXMARK on a couple of projects involving very careful fine tuned promotional and advertising documents, requiring the utmost writing skills and style abilities.
My writing and translation activities are focused on the ICT and technical and scientific publishing market, since I am working as a translator and writer/copywriter for the leading Italian ICT publishing house Edizioni Master and the magazine publishing house Casa Editrice Universo.

I am working once again for Duke Italia but, this time, not as a translator bus as a consultant, author, reviewer and editor.
