I am Mirko, native Italian speaker and independent translator  with more than 10 years of experience, specializing in video game, software, mobile app and website localization. I have a solid knowledge and experience with IT and related content and I also work with marketing and tourism copy.

I am very dedicated and detail-oriented and I have never missed a deadline so far.

Adherence to style guides, high attention to detail, extensive research, communication and queries, tags/code/variables management, careful full final reread, spell-check and QA checks are an integral part of my work procedure.

Fields of Work:

• Video game localization
• Software/mobile app localization
• Website localization
• Marketing, tourism and IT related content

I have had the chance to work with a wide variety of CAT tools (Trados Studio, SDLX, memoQ, IBM Translation Manager, Star Transit XV, MS LocStudio) and in different environments, ranging from small offline projects to very large online ones (e.g. 4+ million words) with shared resources, complex style guides and involving multiple translators and reviewers.

CAT Tools:
• memoQ
• Trados Studio 2015
• SDLX 2007
• Memsource

Please check my "Project History" on this very same page for some examples of projects I carried out and the "Willingness to Work Again" (WWA) section for clients' feedback/references. Here you can find additional information about my identity and its verification.

• "Mirko is a very detail oriented professional who has devoted himself to good quality. Thanks a lot for all the good work!"

In addition to being a "Certified PRO" translator here on ProZ, I am a qualified member of the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters (AITI), member of the International Federation of Translators (FIT).

Very good knowledge and command of the English language, at level C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
Winner of the 2019 ProZ Translation Contest "Benevolent deception: The placebo button effect".
