Bio

Actually, better say "About us": we are a team, the two of us, both in life
and work since 35 years.

 

Cinthia, Foreign Languages High School Diploma (English, French and
Arabic, this last long since forgotten. Living two years in the U.S. and ten
years in Spain.

She's an accurate and
careful researcher, and a very hard worker. In our team she mainly looks after
editing, reviewing and proofing, both from English into Italian and vice-versa.
Very often she shares the total workload.

 

Arrigo, Classical High School Diploma. I studied French as a kid, then English
plus, of course, Latin and Greek and, more recently, Spanish, on location.
Several long stays abroad working in USA, UK and other European Countries.
Moreover, one year on an English course provided by the Company then hiring me.
I used do the most part of the translation job and join her in the proofing;
now, we both translate and exchange roles on each other's translations.

 

Current work: freelance translators
EN->IT->EN (don't be misled, it's now since over 35 years that we earn
our living thanks also to our knowledge of English).

 

Previous works: we both
worked in different roles (tech, admin, sales, logistics and procurement) in
international corporations, specializing in Information Technology (HW &
SW), mechanical/electrical engineering, automotive, communication electronics.

We also ran for ten
years our own firm for HW, SW and IT Services to end users in Rome area.

 

From a professional
point of view, the last 12 years have been “very good years”; below you will
find a partial list of customers and matters.

our major account), Rolls-Royce, Chrysler, Honda, GM, Mazda Lexus, Toyota,
FIAT, IVECO, Maserati, Piaggio. Technical, operation and maintenance manuals,
Marketing documentation, commercial ads, e-Learning and training courses,

Perhaps our funniest
experience was subtitling a well-known mobsters movie from Neapolitan to English
(sic!).

 

In addition, we have
been selected and
certified as EN->IT->EN translators by a major Italian outsourcer, currently
hiring us very often.

 

Our tools: complete and
redundant HW, plenty of SW, Windows10 + Office 2003/2007/2010. We definitely
improved our skills with SDLX, Trados 2007, Studio 2011/14/17 and Across 6.3.

 

We can afford to be very
fast, yet maintaining a high quality level and, last but not least, we are not
scared by working overtime when schedules are to be met.

 

We never leave a customer stranded, Saturdays
and Sundays don't exist for us if a customer is in need: we were grown at a
"Think Customer" school…, and it has
always paid.
