Italy - Last active: 09/07/2013 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 7

I started my freelance position as translator and proofreader, expanding my skills up to substantive editing, creative writing, copy-editing, ghost-writing. I really can work a text and make it sound most appropriate according to a specific context, target public, and degree of specialization. Boredom is something which I cannot stand. I think there is always something interesting to say, it only needs the right way to be communicated, and needs attention. In my opinion, flawless style and localization are the just basic stages of a good translation job: every text has its own public.

The past ten year I've been specializing in software and application localization and quality assurance, as well as software and web related translation projects. I have a combined software/hardware background and know my drives from my buses.

You don't need any web content but a really working one. The one that provokes interest and makes your clients want to find out more. The one that inspires them to make a decision to your benefit. The one that pushes them to click "Buy Now". Or "Like". Or whatever you want. I can do it.
