English to Italian Translation Professional Maria Assunta Castriota

Member since May 06, 2013

I am an English to Italian translator based in Bari, Italy, and I would like to offer my services to your agency. I am seeking for an opportunity to bust my translator’s activity and to use my language skills within a professional business context where I can successfully develop my passion for modern languages.



I officially started my activity as freelance translator in the beginning of 2013, and since then, I have been dealing with general and technical texts related to consumer electronics; culture and literature; tourism and hospitality; marketing and advertising; IT; videogames, apps and web contents; medical reports; personal documents and academic records sectors.



Although my professional experience is quite recent, my secondary school and academic education, as well as my work experience in a multi-ethnic environment, allowed me to develop a deep linguistic competence.



In particular, from September 2006 to March 2010 I have worked in Galway, Ireland, with a manufacturing company leader in the production of UPS and cooling systems and, during my time there, I was often asked to translate white papers, brochures and internal communications from English to Italian. This experience gave me the opportunity to improve my communication skills but also to acquire a very good knowledge of the technical and business language used throughout the company.



I usually work with Trados Studio 2011/2014 and my daily output is about 2000 words per day for techincal texts and about 2500 words per day for general content texts. I am also interested in editing and proofreading tasks.
