Interview with Riccardo Schiaffino," About Translation blog" | Wordbee

Interview with Riccardo Schiaffino," About Translation blog" | Wordbee | Language and Translation Industry | Scoop.it
Riccardo was kind enough to interview with us about the state of the translation industry in a wide-ranging, insightful, and rambling interview.

Riccardo Schiaffino writes the About Translation translation blog, which was selected by BabLa as one of the top 25 language professional blogs, and also as one of the top 100 language-lover blogs being published today. When you look around the little world of translation blogs on the web (but what a world it is!), it doesn’t take long to discover the About Translation blog, whether it’s referenced, or on somebody’s list of best translation blogs. Oh, and he’s a truly experienced and specialized translator for English into Italian legal work!

We would like to thank Riccardo for interviewing with us, and for providing such insightful and thoughtful answers!

The interview covers a variety of topics, like the future of machine translation, the nature of “word people,” and the differences between the translation industry in Italy and in the USA.

We requested a photograph of Riccardo sweating over a translation on an Olivetti typewriter, but we’ll have to settle for a picture of Riccardo working at his favorite CAT tool and looking like a happy translator!
