Speaker:
Fabio Descalzi (Uruguay), Arquitecto y traductor técnico

Bio: Nacido en Uruguay en 1968, Fabio estudió alemán en el Colegio Alemán de Montevideo y el Instituto Goethe, donde se formó como docente de idioma extranjero y obtuvo el KDS. También tiene nivel profesional en inglés y aprendió por su cuenta portugués y otros idiomas.

Fabio se recibió de Arquitecto en la Universidad de la República (1996), realizó un posgrado sobre Proyectos de Inversión Inmobiliaria (UCUDAL según planes de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, 1998) y trabajó en estudios de arquitectura. En 2000 se fue a Alemania, donde adquirió experiencia en la industria de la construcción y el sector inmobiliario; de regreso en Uruguay, paulatinamente fue dedicándose a las traducciones a tiempo completo desde su hogar, a medida que la red de redes fue creciendo en popularidad y esto se hizo posible.

Ha dedicado sus esfuerzos a la organización de talleres de formación en herramientas de traducción asistida por computadora y al aseguramiento de la calidad en la industria del lenguaje. Por su espíritu emprendedor, en setiembre de 2007 la Cámara Nacional de Comercio y Servicios le confirió una Mención Especial a la Originalidad en la Exportación de Servicios.

Además, en ProZ.com es moderador de KudoZ en los pares alemán>español e inglés>español, y también modera los foros de Corrección/Edición/Revisión, Diversidad Lingüística y La Traducción en Uruguay.
____________________________________________________________

Born in Uruguay in 1968, Fabio studied German at the Montevideo German School and the Goethe-Institut, where he trained as teacher of foreign language and attained the KDS. He is also proficient in English and a self-taught speaker of Portuguese and other languages.

Fabio holds a degree in Architecture (University of the Republic, Montevideo, 1996), a postgraduate degree in Real Estate Projects (UCUDAL according to syllabus of the Pontificial Catholic University of Chile, 1998) and has work experience in architectural studios. He moved to Germany in 2000, where he gained work experience in the construction industry and real estate sectors; back in Uruguay, he gradually moved into full-time freelance translation from the comfort of home as the growing popularity of the web began to make this feasible.

He has devoted his efforts to the organization of CAT Tools training workshops and to Quality Assurance in the translation industry. Due to his entrepreneurial spirit, in September 2007 he received a Commendation for Originality in Export of Services from the National Chamber of Commerce and Services of Uruguay.

He also moderates the German>Spanish and English>Spanish subcommunities on Proz.com and the forums for Proofreading/Editing/Reviewing, Linguistic Diversity and Translation in Uruguay.
