Professional practices Marco Strazzi endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).

After graduating in languages and journalism, I was a member of the editorial staff and subsequently a desk editor of an Italian sportsmagazine. During this time, I translated from English, French and Spanish hundreds of articles and interviews sent by foreign correspondents, mostly on football and tennis.

Later on I changed my career path and became involved in communication related to watchmaking. I wrote and published five historical books on this subject: two in Italian and three in English and Italian. I did several translations for high-end Swiss watchmakers: advertising campaigns, technical descriptions, historical publications.

I live in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland and Italian is the language I speak and write most - at home as well as in translations, as a consecutive interpreter during the visits of Italian-speaking agents and VIP clients to the manufacturing facilities of a well known brand and, lately, as the writer of a historical novel. In 2013 and in 2014, I entrusted the English and French translations of the latter to professionals. Two projects I followed not just as an employer but, more importantly, as an active supervisor and counsellor.

I am your choice if you are looking for a translator who is also a writer.

Dopo la laurea in lingue e il conseguimento del diploma di giornalista professionista, ho esercitato l'attività di traduttore parallelamente a quella di redattore e poi caposervizio presso una rivista sportiva italiana, traducendo dall'inglese, dal francese e dallo spagnolo centinaia di articoli provenienti dai corrispondenti esteri, in particolare sul calcio e il tennis.

In seguito ho cambiato settore editoriale, scrivendo e pubblicando cinque libri storici sull'orologeria: due in italiano e tre in inglese e italiano. Inoltre, ho portato a termine numerosi mandati di traduzione per conto di Case svizzere di primo piano: campagne pubblicitarie, schede tecniche, pubblicazioni storiche.

Vivo nella Svizzera italiana e l'italiano rimane la lingua che pratico più assiduamente: a casa, nelle traduzioni, come interprete consecutivo durante le visite di clienti e agenti di lingua italiana presso una manifattura d'orologeria e, da ultimo, come autore di un romanzo storico. Nel 2013 e nel 2014 ho affidato a professionisti membri di le traduzioni inglese e francese di quest'ultimo. Progetti ai quali ho partecipato non solo come datore di lavoro ma anche come collaboratore e supervisore assiduo.

Se stai cercando un traduttore che è anche scrittore, credo di essere la persona giusta.
