Bio

35 years of experience in the technical, legal and financial fields. Reliability and quality assurance are the keys to my mindset.
If what you need are fast and accurate translations, please don't hesitate to contact me. 

After obtaining a diploma in industrial mechanics, I graduated in foreign languages (Russian, English and French) at Ca' Foscari University of Venice. Then I worked four years as a public relations manager in a leading company producing turn key plants for the ceramic industry before moving to Britain, where I worked and studied for two years, obtaining the Certificate of Proficiency in English (Grade A). In 1980, I came back to Venice and set up a translation company specialising in technical subjects, particularly mechanical engineering and maritime law, given the presence of Marghera, Venice's commercial port.

I've also collaborated for a long period with CVN, the State Concessionaire for the defence of Venice from high waters and restoration of the balance of ecosystems in the lagoon. The translation of thousands of pages of literature on the subject has enabled me to build up an in-depth knowledge of environmental protection themes (above all, in wetlands) and the sophisticated technologies associated with the project to close the lagoon mouths with mobile buoyancy gates (MOSE).
The more than fifteen-year long collaboration with the world famous textile group Benetton has enabled me to develop a detailed knowledge of not just the textile sector, but also business, economics and finance. Benetton is a shareholder in some hundred or so companies throughout the world and has its own financial holding company. I also specialise in the field of climatisation and heating appliances, high-pressure water jet equipment (motorised sweepers and pumps of the IP Cleaning brand) and household appliances of all kinds (De Longhi group brand).

Since 1981, I have been registered with the Court of Venice as a consultant for sworn translations.
