Here are only included the more significant translations (titles), with regard either to their length and/or their nature. Most range from two thousand to eight thousand words in length and I indicated the actual word count for the more important projects. I personally translated ALL jobs listed with the only exceptions of the UFGS and the FAO projects, for which I coordinated all work (both over 240,000 words) carried out by several translators and translated myself 80,000 of those for each one.

From English into French, more translated fields are the following : Science & Technology; Economics & Commercial; Energy & Environment; Construction & Public Works; from Italian into French : all.

I have already built-up my personal library of translation memories and glossaries for almost all of these projects, creating a most extensive trilingual terminology database. This wide-ranging lexical base compiled over the years is employed exclusively to ensure greater terminological consistency in translation, revision and/or editing. In no case is proprietary terminology ever transferred or divulged to third parties, in order to avoid breach of clients' confidentiality. The same for translation memories and glossaries protected by copyright.

As translations are generally subject to non-disclosure agreements, I don't give out translation samples. Only in a very exceptional way, and on the grounds of serious reasons, I can provide short anonymized examples of work upon request.

As well, if a new client want me to do a paid test for assess my translation quality and writing skills, text must be no longer than 200 words (40,00 € minimum fee to charge).

Projects directly undertaken by Studio 92 Snc into English or into Italian are not mentioned here. With regard to subcontracting activities, several agencies have entrusted me with their more complex projects.

All links are clickable, allowing you to access the translation page in French, from where you can go back to the category you want by clicking on the flags. This page is always on progress, please come back from time to time to see new entries.

Unified Facilities Guide Specifications

As said on the UFGS' site, Unified Facilities Guide Specifications are a joint effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), and the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA, and are for use in specifying construction for the military services.

We are talking about a 240,000 words project in less than three months, the biggest and the most difficult I've ever translated (I was together project manager, team coordinator, translator, proofreader and so forth). This version of specs was updated at 1996. Below is the list of chapters to be translated.
