What’s behind Edit et Versa’s translations?

I have always known my ideal job was one in which I could leave a trace of my own personality while being able to communicate a message and use languages in a creative fashion. Finding out what kind of job that was, though, required some trial and error.

Tv-shows subtitler, press office assistant, junoir copyeditor, content and copywriter, and language teacher: I did it all and each one of these experience helped me collect knowledge or develop skills that add a special flavour to my Italian translations for marketing, telecommunications or the education industry.

Each translation comes with:

  • A special attention to language change, sensitivity to culture, curiosity and high familiarity with slangs (so much that I wrote my Bachelor’s thesis about it).
  • Specialized knowledge on SEO best practices, marketing, and copywriting.
  • Use of CAT-Tools to ensure consistency in terminology and to allow me to work faster.
  • Accurate revision process… twice.
  • Quality Analysis check

Voilà! Your Italian translation is ready!

My specializations

Marketing

Product descriptions, booklets, body copy, newsletters, blog posts… basically everything that can end up shared on social medias.

Telecommunication and ICT

Do you have user guides, handbooks, manuals, data sheets, or other texts about phones, computers and technology to be translated? I am here for you.

Education

Websites and eLearning portals, as well as excercises, textbooks and any didactic material are my bread and butter.

Publishing

One must not think only about novels but also about short stories, e­­­­books, essays or magazine articles. In short: everything that has an ISBN code!

Continuing professional development

Languages evolve, and so do the techniques, the software, the market… Alas, one never finishes to learn. But, thankfully, I like learning.
Here there are some of the most important courses and webinars I attended to stay on top of my game:

FAQ

What kind of file should I send?

In order to translate your documents, I need an editable format, so a Word or Open Office document is perfect. Other types of documents I can work on are Excel, HTML and HTML5 files. And if you really just have a PDF, send it and I’ll see what I can do.

Cost of the translation

The cost is calculated in source words for shorter texts or in standard pages (1,800 characters with spaces) for literary texts or similar. It varies according to the job’s complexity and it can go from 0.08€ to 0.12€ per word.

Payment methods

I accept payments through a bank transfer as well as Paypal. You don’t have to pay the sum in one go, we can agree on dividing it into installments if it is more convenient for you.

How do you use CAT-tools?

CAT tools are offline softwares that help me be faster and keep consistency in the texts I translate. If requested by you, I don’t use online CAT tools.
I usually use SDL Trados 2021, but I can work with Wordfast Pro and Memsource as well. Every CAT tools saves chunks of your original text together with the translated segment into a translation memory so, if we have recurrent projects together, these memories make sure that I always use the same names for your products. I will not share this with anybody and, if you wish, I can delete them after project completion.
