As a certified professional Italian translator, I have written many technical publications, reports, and documents.
Any article – or part of it – published by Roberto Crivello can be reproduced provided his name and the source of the article (that is, this website) are mentioned.
This is the presentation I gave at the ATA 53rd Annual Conference – San Diego, October 27th 2012. You can download it as PDF:
The Technical Translator’s Dictionary (in Italian)
This is a work in progress. It is a collection of difficult words that appear often in technical documents. However, these words do not have an instant translation, are usually translated incorrectly or upon further examination give insight into linguistic/translation issues.
For any feedback or request for further information on this topic please write me, in English or Italian, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Training modules on technical translation into Italian
I am the author of two training modules on technical translation into Italian, written for ICoN (Italian Culture on the Net) Group. In partnership with three Italian universities, ICoN offers a Master in Translation modeled after the European Master’s in Translation. Among university professors specialized in translation and world-class professional translators, IcoN decided that I was the person most suited to write about the various aspects of technical translation into Italian.
