About me
I have a Master in Translation from the University of Geneva (Diplôme de Traducteur from ETI – University of Geneva, Switzerland, 1982, Attestation d'Equivalence: August 2010) and a long-standing experience as a translator, localizer and copywriter.

I started as literary translator (I translated several English and French books for major Italian publishers, listed below), then moved to Information Technology and localization. I worked extensively on projects of Microsoft, Compaq, HP, Quark, AutoDesk, Lotus, Computer Associates, JDE and several other software producers. I also substantially worked for: Agfa, Reflex, and other international manufacturers.
Today I work as technical and patent translator and website transcreator.
I can translate approx. 2000 words per day, ensuring high quality and punctuality.
I have a solid experience in Trados as well as several other translation tools (such as MemoQ, Star Transit, IBM TM, XL8, OmegaT, other proprietary tools, etc. )
