I’m Licia Corbolante, an Italian terminologist and localization specialist. Terminologia etc. is my personal blog on terminology, translation, localization and anything language-related that attracts my attention. It is currently available only in Italian.
I hold a degree in translation from the University of Trieste, Italy, and a diploma of advanced studies in applied linguistics and marketing from the University of Salford, UK; I also did further studies in computational linguistics at Dublin City University, Ireland.
I have been working in the localization field since the early 90s, mainly at Microsoft, where I was instrumental in defining Italian localization standards, developing target language processes and driving best practices across languages. Until recently I was Senior Italian Terminologist with Microsoft Language Excellence, an international team of terminologists and language specialists responsible for maintaining a multilingual, concept-oriented terminology database and supporting Microsoft product teams and localization service providers (for additional information, see the outline of my presentation Working with terminology at Microsoft at tcworld 2008 and a brief list of articles and speeches).
I currently work as an independent terminologist and localization specialist and I am based in Milan, Italy. My profile is in LinkedIn.
