Gianluca Attoli.
Freelance translator.

A really good one.

About Me

I am a full-time, 7 years-experienced freelance translator, editor and linguistic consultant based in Milan, Italy.

I translate and revise documents from English and French to Italian.

And I am pretty good at it.

I am focused, passionate, accurate, reasonably smart and cultured enough to think out of any box.

I know my mother language and my reference registers deeply enough to shape them exactly for your needs and targets.

I am honest enough to accept only projects for which I can guarantee the best quality for.

... and I love this job enough not to mind spending weekends or nights helping you meeting the deadliest deadlines.

Services

I currently work mostly with SDL Trados 2014, MemoQ 2015, Fluency Suite and Memsource 6 but no problem if you prefer me to use your own cloud-based or web-based CAT platform - I am a quick learner.

I translate, revise and edit texts and documents mostly in the following areas, which are the fields I have the best & long-time experience in (as that small selection of happy end clients down there can confirm).

I am always open and willing to explore new segments as long as my expertise can fit in. Try me.

bio

I was born in 1984 in Monza, a lovely town near Milano, Italy. I graduated in 2009 in Communications and Publishing (MA) with a thesis concerning Jacques Rivette's film Out 1: Noli me tangere from 1971 (still my favourite film to this day). I started working as freelance translator basically just right after my graduation, things started to go well surprisingly soon, and here I am today. I never thought for a single second about changing my job or looking for something else.

I am an avidly voracious music fan, loving tens of thousands of records and musicians, from Art Blakey to Portishead. You know the "I will make you a compilation tape" kind of guy anyone in the 1990's knew at least an example of? That was me. And just as much as that, I am also an avid reader. My office/living room is filled with books, you can find anything from Dante Alighieri to Mickey Spillane.

Finally I also like classic tattooing, fragrances, cinema, food and tennis.

I share all this fun with two smart, beautiful, blonde-haired and green-eyed female creatures - a four-pawed one and a two-legged one.
