Former UK Service Manager, Export Sales Area Manager, Accounts Technician. During my career I have translated hundreds of documents from English into Italian and vice versa. As a freelance translator I have translated dozens of User Manuals, Workshop Manuals etc. mostly for the automotive industry. Some of them run into hundreds of pages. I seldom use dictionaries: glossaries reside in my head, they have been accumulating for 40 years now!.
