Bio

Who am I?


Certified Italian native speaker, ProZ.com Certified PRO, and localization & transcreation specialist. Experience in handling localization processes as a whole for text-heavy open-world video games, as a translator (transcreation, proofreading, photo editing), LQA tester, and localization project manager (file preparation, regex tagging, developer relations). Freelancer providing professional language services for gaming, technical, and marketing content. 2,000,000 words translated, with an average daily output of 2,500 words.


In 2012, I started translating minor mods as a hobby for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, an action RPG. In 2017, I got in touch with a fan translation team through a video games forum. I joined the team and started volunteering in a big Skyrim translation project (Enderal: The Shards of Order, a total conversion ARPG made from scratch with the Skyrim game editor and engine; half a million words translated/reviewed/tested in-game).

Starting from the same year, I taught myself regex, tags, term extraction, CAT tools, project management, OCR software, and localization QA as I undertook more projects, mainly Discord (VoIP software), Divinity: Original Sin II (classic RPG; now as an official language on both PC and consoles), Tower of Time (dungeon crawler; now as an official language on PC), and Black Mesa (shooter; Half-Life remake).

Since 2017,  I've been working on Skywind, an ARPG total conversion for Skyrim that aims to re-create The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind into the more modern Skyrim engine (to this day, I localized 1.3 million words for this project by myself).

In 2020, I started freelancing for various agencies, specializing in gaming, technical, and marketing content and achieving successful results (for instance, I'm a Top Scorer and Pro translator for Gengo).


Most of my projects involve technical translation: UI errors/debug messages/text with placeholder tags and tag pairs, text within untagged code, code comments, software, & tools (e.g., Discord, Vortex). Furthermore, I have localization experience in the following fields: electronics, hardware, manuals, IT.

All my gaming projects also involve transcreation: NPCs, items, spells, locations, rhyming, idioms, and more.
