This is the list of software and technologies with which I deal. This list is not full and expands day by day. I always can find right decisions if I found some problems. And I am always interested in looking for mostly economical and productive solutions. Of course, Cpanel, WHM, Webmin, Plesk .... I know how are working these web-wrappers and I support their. I can will tune and to make the checking of these wrappers. But that more important !!

Silvano Uncini

Silvano Uncini Agency Contractor


Spain - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

As a native italian speaker with university level education (foreign languages @ university of Bologna Alma Mater Studiorum) I am able to translate from and to English, Spanish and Italian languages. During my experience as a translator I focused myself on websites and apps translations with great results and big satisfaction of my clients, which usually contact me again whenever they need other translations (if they come back, they should be satisfied I suppose). Due to my prior scientific education and to my deep passion for science, automotive, enginnering and biology I can easily handle the most technical translations, while still being able to translate literature or art related texts due to my university education. Moreover I have HTML and some programming languages basics which allow me to easily translate websites and apps translations directly in the code. I have SEO and web marketing basics, learned both reading/stuying and working on translations.
