Technical writing in Italian and English

Over 20 years of experience in technical translation from English to Italian.
Project management and coordination for large projects developed in team.
I’m able to deliver the most complex projects with the highest quality standards.

I work in all major word processing and desktop publishing platforms as well as multi-media. With state of the art terminology database management applications, advanced translation memories and glossary development tools, I use leading-edge technology for speed, accuracy and economy.

For my proven skills in administering complex software applications, and my ability in undertaking terminological decisions for innovative technologies, I was in charge of several translation verification tests for major software houses at their labs in Silicon Valley, California; RTP, North Carolina; and Taipei, Republic of China.

The hardware is being continuously updated, as the global demand for communication services grows larger and more complex.

Important update about my rates:
In some cases, e.g., a known colleague asking for help on particular projects with not so a tight deadline, substantial discounts to my rates could apply. In case you are intersted in my services, feel free to e-mail me for a quote.

Actively contributing to the community since January 2002.
