Bio
If you are reading this after checking out my CV one thing will immediately strike you as peculiar: throughout my working career I have never really translated as a way of making a living. What my working career has provided me with though is a wealth of knowledge regarding the environment within which I have been moving for over twenty years.

My decision to try my hand at professionally translating texts has more to do with a life long passion for languages in general - I am continuously striving to memorise words and expressions even from the most improbable tongues I have come across in my roamings - than with a real need to make a living as I currently carry on working full time for the ING Renault F1 Racing Team.

Having been a fixture in the Renault F1 travelling personnel group for the last fourteen years adding to the seven I had already totalled before I moved to the UK from Italy I feel I can rightfully claim having collected a vast experience in dealing with diverse cultures and people from around the globe and I have more than proven my ability to communicate in any of the five languages I fluently speak and write. In more than a few instances I have been acting as an impromptu interpreter for team members, sponsor representatives, journalists and the like, increasingly frequently on behalf of my employer.

So, there you have it, give me a try. I am more than capable of tackling all sorts of subjects with a distinct edge in technical, automotive, marketing and tourism related fields, you won't regret it.

Keywords: Twenty plus years of working with racing cars and in the automobile industry in general make for this field being my best speciality area. Working on a daily basis in an international environment going to add to a very varied personal life spanning regularly a number of nations helped my getting confortable with expressing myself in five different languages.
