I have 20+ years of experience as freelancer translating high-tech, industrial, and technical marketing documents for direct clients and translation companies.

I was born and raised in Italy. I have engineering degrees and have worked as R&D engineer in both Italy and US. In my career I have translated ads, brochures, catalogs, hardware/software documentation, company newsletters, product guides (installation/operation manuals), press releases, slide presentations, video scripts, web sites, and white papers.

I work in many technical fields, including automotive, computer hardware/software, engines, gear drives, heavy machinery and vehicles, high-tech medical instruments, hydraulic systems, machine/power tools, motors, networking, optical instruments, packaging, pumps, measurement/monitoring electronic instruments, test equipment, turbines, and uninterruptible power supplies.

Client testimonials “… your strong technical background is invaluable. Even with a technical background, technology is constantly changing and you are a translator who insists on understanding before translating. (Unfortunately not all translators are so conscientious.)”
…As one of our clients who recently reviewed a translation that you completed said, “We learned from our Italian sales company that your Italian translator does his job very well.”
~Cathy Hubbard, General Manager, SH3 Inc. “My clients in Italy have often commented on Roberto’s excellent understanding of technical terminology and the high quality of his translations.” ~Franks Semmens, President, Translation Services International “We have had many favorable comments from clients and advisors as to the quality of Roberto’s work.” ~Kevin M. Lenzen, Technical Publications Account Manager, JLS Language Corporation “Our client sent the files to their reps in Italy for review and they were very pleased with your translation.” ~Karen G. Landis, Director of Operations, Languages Unlimited Inc. “Mr. Crivello is an astute technical translator. His ability to dissect the source text, in order to visualize the product, is amazing. He is accurate, on-time, and our choice for technical Italian translations.” ~Bonnie Hawes, Production Coordinator, Accurapid Translation Services, Inc. “Dear Roberto,
We received copies of the catalog you translated… The client was very happy with the results and used the catalog at a big international electronics show.”
~John Jacobs, Publishing Technologies Inc. “Dear Roberto, my client said that he was informed from his contacts in Italy, that your Italian translations are the best they have seen.” ~Rogelio Cipriano, President, Atlantic International Translators “Hi Roberto,
I just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for the excellent Italian
translation work you have done for our company. The last project we did was extremely difficult due to the very technical nature of the text. We were very impressed with how comfortable you were with the text. You showed an excellent ability to “cut” through the “engineer speak” of the manual.
The client’s European office gave your translation an excellent rating.”
~Peter Argondizzo, President, Argo Translation, Inc. Don’t take chances for your next translation project. Tap the full range of capabilities that will assure you of the best possible results: native-fluency, solid technical background in both English and Italian, utmost attention to accuracy and consistency of terminology, and solid writing skills.
