My name is Silvia Nigretto and I'm a technical
Translator & Interpreter, member of AITI, the Association of Italian
Translators and Interpreters.

I translate English and French into Italian.

I started my career in 1996 in an engineering office
producing user manuals, owner's manuals and workshop manuals.

This made me start!

I was assigned the translation of Volvo workshop
manuals and other technical information documents from English into Italian.

I was really fascinated by the automotive &
mechanical sectors and, when in 1999 I became a freelance, I decided these
sectors would have become my speciality.

Today, after 23 years working for cars, car radios,
navigation systems, automotive diagnosis testers, Recall Campaign letters and
much more, I'm still fascinated, although among my regular assignments there
are manuals about motorbikes, trucks, bus, workshop tools, and something
completely different, i.e., industrial printing machines, mobile phones, TV
sets, robotics, and much more.

I'm accurate, reliable and expert - I don't accept
jobs which are not among my specialities.


My interpretation job helps me to understand all the
procedures, the car systems and the workshop tools which I find in the manuals
I translate.
