Please allow me to introduce myself: I am not the usual 'one-size-fits-all' translator, as I work *exclusively* in my specialization fields: Information Technology, Computers, Hardware, Software, Networking, Consumer Electronics, Multimedia, Mobile devices, Audio/Video/Photo, Telecommunications, etc. - from English into Italian (my mother tongue).

You might want to give a look at my details below. I have built 24 years of experience in this kind of translation and - thanks to quality, speed and affordability of my services - have been able to win as direct clients all the major Italian Computer Publishing Houses, such as:

Mondadori Informatica (PC Professionale ), VNU Business Publications Italia (PC Magazine, Network News Italia, Computer Reseller News, Computer Idea), Duke Italia (Windows & .Net Magazine, Linux Journal, Internet World), Edizioni Master (Computer Bild Italia, AudioVideoFoto Bild Italia), PlayPress Publishing (Chip Magazine, Vista Magazine)

Another important direct client is Dell Computer Italy.

My background in engineering and as a technical journalist, coupled with so many years in translation, can make a real difference. Last but not least, I can use Trados and my rates are very competitive!

Education :
* Scientific High School, Collegio Santa Maria, Verbania, graded 60/60.
* College of Engineering, Politecnico di Milano, 25/30 ex.

Experience : 1988-now In 1988 I founded Microwide, a company that provides translation services. In that position I have further improved my experience in the field of computer-related technical translation from English into Italian, being able to win as customers all the major Italian Publishing Houses in the IT industry.

1986-1988 While continuing as a consultant my activity of translator and journalist, I joined J.soft s.r.l. in Milan (a former publisher that became a nationwide exclusive software distributor for Lotus software and other IT products) as marketing manager. In that period I also wrote two computer books ("Il libro dei giochi per il Commodore 64" and "Lavoriamo con il Commodore 16"), published nationwide by Gruppo Editoriale Jackson.

1984-1986 Developing a previous hobby, I started my first job as editor for the computer magazines SuperVic, SuperCommodore 64, and PaperSoft, published by Gruppo Editoriale Jackson in Milan. In 1986 I graduated as a journalist (n. 55663, Milan). Afterwards, in the spare time I started a consulting activity as a translator from English into Italian, translating many articles published by those and other magazines. In the same period I translated a number of computer books for the same publisher.

Skills :
All the mainstream office tools (Windows 98/NT/2000/XP, MS-Office, databases, servers, Internet software, and much much more). I use a number of state-of-the-art computers systems (all Windows), a 24x7 Internet connection, voice recognition software, in-house developed software, and many other tools.

Current jobs :
I am translating on an on-going basis whole or part of the following Italian computer magazines:
* Windows & .NET Magazine (Gruppo Editoriale Duke Italia)
* Linux Journal (Gruppo Editoriale Duke Italia)
* Internet World (Gruppo Editoriale Duke Italia)
* PC Magazine (VNU Business Publications Italia)
* Network News Italia (VNU Business Publications Italia)
* Computer Reseller News (VNU Business Publications Italia)
* Computer Idea (VNU Business Publications Italia)
* Data Business (VNU Business Publications Italia)
* CHIP Magazine (PlayPress Publications)
* Computer Bild Italia (Edizioni Master)
* AudioVideoFoto Bild Italia (Edizioni Master)

Among other jobs, I am translating on an on-going basis technical and marketing documentation for Dell Computer Italy.

Objective :
To start a collaboration as a consulting translator which utilizes my more than 20 years of translation experience, my experience in the IT industry, and my experience as a journalist.

I *don't* offer proofreading/editing services, but translation only!
