Do you need to translate an instruction manual, an appraisal, technical documentation, a press release, technical-scientific article or product catalogue, the user interface of your software or your website into German? You have found the right person, who not only has the language skills, but also the necessary technical skills.
“I don’t just speak your language. I speak the language of your machines, your plants, your engines. In the language of your target audience.”
My hometown is Munich, one of the German automotive strongholds. My parents are from Turin, the undisputed automotive capital and my home for 30 years. I grew up between two cities and between two languages, and I breathed the air of cars and engines from an early age. I made my profession out of my passion for languages and technology and became a translator specializing in the technical field. I started my own business in 2005 and, in addition to the automotive sector, I specialize in the sectors of machine tools, robotics and automation, hydraulics and mechanics, and lifting equipment – with a long excursus into the world of lifts.
I am deeply convinced that only if I know how a machine tool works can I translate the user manual of the machine tool using the correct language, or be an interpreter during the training course on the machine. Only if I know how engine timing is performed can I simultaneously translate the entire procedure into the target language. A technical translation requires not only perfect command of both languages, but above all in-depth technical skills.
In over sixteen years of working as a translator I have acquired a high degree of specialization in the technical field, which is my jewel in the crown. I translate into your language, but above all into the language of your industry. For this reason, I only provide translation services in the technical sector and only from and into German.

AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION
I offer technical translations in the following areas:
I am a member of Assointerpreti, the Italian National Association of Professional Conference Interpreters, which for almost half a century brings together only interpreters specialized in simultaneous, consecutive and whispered interpreting. Access to the association is reserved to professional interpreters who can demonstrate a long experience of interpreting at conferences and other institutional events.
I am a qualified member of AITI, the main Italian association of translators and interpreters and a founding member of FIT. From 2008 to 2015 I was a member of the Training Commission of the AITI Piedmont and Aosta Valley branch and took part in organising training events for professional translators and interpreters.
From 2017 to 2020 I was a member of the AITI National Interpreters Commission, which deals with promoting the profession of conference and liaison interpreters and organising dedicated training events.
In 2019 I passed the AITI exam for conference interpreters for the German language (simultaneous and consecutive)and obtained UNI 11591:2015 certification.
Since March 2020 I have been a certified conference interpreter in compliance with the UNI 11591:2015 standard. My certificate number is: TRAINT2020-00122, verifiable on the Accredia website. Certification entails a practical exam of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation (in both directions, Italian>German and German>Italian), a written test on the standard and finally an oral exam, always regarding the contents of the UNI 11591:2015 standard. The UNI 11591:2015 standard “Unregulated Professional Activities – Professionals working in the fields of translation and interpreting – Requirements in terms of knowledge, skills and competence” unambiguously defines the activity of the professional translator and interpreter and is in force from 10 September 2015. Originating from Italian Law 4/2013, it was drawn up thanks to the strong commitment of the Working Group made up of professional associations, including AIIC, AITI and Assointerpreti, with consultancy provided by the University of Bologna, the San Pellegrino University Foundation and the University of Trieste (IUSLIT-SSLMIT). UNI certification is a guarantee for customers because it clearly identifies the knowledge, skills and expertise that distinguish professionals from amateur or non-professional operators and who are officially certified by a body accredited by the Italian Accreditation Body (ACCREDIA) according to the ISO/IEC 17024 standard for the certification of persons.
