Professional practices Fabio De Grandis endorses's Professional Guidelines.
Fabio De Grandis - Italian translator ENG > IT.

I hold a Master's degree in specialized translation ENG > IT (technology/biological/pharmaceutical) and a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistic and Cultural Mediation.

I think that a translator should be specialized in only few fields in order to produce quality work. Therefore I avoid having too much specialties and I rather try to keep myself up-to date in my fields of interest.

My hands-on experience in electronics is an added value, but I am also very interested in technology, biomedical and pharmaceutical translation.

My main objective is to improve my translation skills year after year, and build a honest and professional work relationship with my clients.
