MY SERVICES

Services I provide include translation and editing from English, French and Japanese into Italian. To optimize time and results, I use computer-aided translation (CAT), term management and QA check tools. My main expertise areas are Business & Legal Translation, IT & Web Localization, and Machine-Translation Post-Editing, with a broad real work experience and commitment to continuous professional development (CPD).

BUSINESS & LEGAL
Every text related to Legal & Business field – contracts, business correspondence, catalogs and brochures, company docs, warranties, terms of use, policies and so on - encompasses a specific set of ideas and concepts that should be conveyed accurately. Thanks to my work experience, commitment to CPD in this area and proficient use of CAT tools and QA and term check procedures, I can guarantee term accuracy and style command, with great care of customers' confidential data. If it is necessary to certify the translation or to submit it to foreign authorities, I also provide sworn translation and/or legalization (apostilling) services.
IT & WEB LOCALIZATION
Unlike the mere translation, the localization implies a neater adaptation of contents, focusing on specific culture and conventions of local market/audience. In other words, localization aims at making those contents (related to software and hardware products, Web sites, etc.) as usable as possible to prevent the sense of confusion that could arise from strange concepts to target culture and language. A typical example is to think about an English text containing sports metaphors taken from baseball, that can be adapted with metaphors referred to football universe in Italian, as they are more familiar to Italian final users and readers. Thanks to my experience in this field, I am aware of challenges posed by any localization project and of different technical requirements to meet (i.e. length restrictions, use of industry-standard and product terminology, adherence to style guide) for the best rendering.
EDITING & POST-EDITING
Editing and MT post-editing goal is to check translation accuracy on different levels, including spelling, grammar, syntax, terminology, and adherence to style guide. While editing is addressed to review the work done by other (human) translators, post-editing consists in reviewing and fixing machine-translated (MT) contents, that are processed and built using automated translation engines. Over the years I have developed a robust check procedure that allows me to provide both services in an accurate and thorough manner.
