About Me

Hello! My name is Francesca Grande, I am an Italian native speaker and a freelance linguist. For over 20 years, I have been working in the interlinguistic and intercultural communication sector.

As a highly reliable translator and interpreter, I value continuous professional development. I keep on 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 specialized in many jargons. I am fast in handling projects and extremely flexible to the client’s needs. Moreover, I keep strict confidentiality about documents and data. And yes, I have never missed a deadline!

My commitment to quality. In my work, I strive to make sure that my translation reflects not only the contents but also the style and register of the source text. I create and make use of translation memories, terminology databases as well as reference glossaries. This allows me to build a real “terminological history” for each client, thus guaranteeing the highest level of consistency and cohesion.

My focus on clients. My aim is to deliver a tailor-made solution for each client. In WordsUp I personally handle every aspect of the workflow: requests’ assessment, project management, production process, bookkeeping, etc. Working with the same person gives clients the opportunity to get an answer to all their requests directly and to step 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.
