About Me

My name is Francesca Grande, I’m a freelance linguist who has been working for over 17 years in the interlinguistic and intercultural communication sector.

I’m an Italian native speaker and a higly reliable professional. I follow a continuous development process by studying industry specific subjects and thereby stay up-to-date regarding the main developments in my fields of expertise. Having translated numerous texts on similar topics I have specialised in many jargons. I am fast in handling projects, extremely flexible to the clients’ needs and I keep strict confidentiality about documents and data. Last but not least… I have never missed a deadline!

My commitment to quality. I take extreme care to make sure, the style, the register and of course the contents are appropriate for the language. Thanks to the creation of translation memories and terminology databases and to the editing of reference glossaries, I can create a real “terminological history” for each client, thus guaranteeing consistency and cohesion.

My focus on the client. My aim is to deliver a tailor-made solution for each client. In Words Up I personally handle every aspect of the workflow: requests’ assessment, project management, production process, bookkeeping, etc. Working with the same person gives the client the opportunity to get an answer to all his/her requests directly and additionally gain the flexibility of stepping in whenever desired, to specify particular deadline and delivery needs, style and formatting conditions, changes in the text or the importance of adopting an existing company-specific terminology.
