When I started this blog I thought it would help attract more visitors (and perhaps potential customers) to our company's web site.
It has become, instead, a way to share my passion for this profession with others.
Something about me
My name is Riccardo Schiaffino.
I have always worked in translation: first as a freelance translator, then as a partner in a translation company, later still as translator, translation manager and special software translation project lead for a major software company.
As a translation manager, my main interest was the improvement of translation quality and the development of translation quality metrics and tools.
Currently I work in Aliquantum, a small company which I established with a few friends and colleagues to provide high-quality translation services and language consulting.
I also teach translation at Denver University's University College where I teach a course on the theory and practice of translation, and another on the localization of software and web pages.
Thank you for visiting!
